Galaxy prints are not a new trend – just ask Christopher Kane – but their magic is still intact. Despite being practically everywhere – on swimsuits, shoes and all kind of dresses – there’s something mysterious about wearing a galaxy-printed item. Romanticism, a certain charm of the unknown and probably a thrill of horror vacui: the idea of endless spaces surrounding our planet can be related to many different concepts. A designer who has used these ideas in her creations is the Greek-born Athena Procopiou: Ziggy, her collection of scarves and kimonos, reproduces beautiful galaxy prints which open an imaginary window into the unknown.
