Inspired by the music scene of the 1970s, the Fall/Winter 2017 collection from DIMITRI celebrates Studio 54 icons including Grace Jones, Diana Ross and Bianca Jagger. With wrap dresses, bell bottoms and miniskirts, the designer from Italy takes us back to an era marked by style, glamour and iconic creativity.
The campaign to go with it also reflects DIMITRI's passion for music as well as the aesthetics of the seventies. His muse was no less than five-fold Grammy winner Lauryn Hill, whose style of clothing and unmistakable hairstyle served as the model. The result is an expressive photo spread characterized by the both cool and feminine appearance of model Lucy Nelson Lee.
The 40-year-old designer, whose full name is Dimitrios Panagiotopoulos, trained at the well-known ESMOD fashion design school before going on to earn a Master's degree in fashion design at the ISTITUTO MARANGONI in Milan. The son of a Greek father and an Italian mother displayed an affinity for fashion even as a child. He has been fascinated by it ever since and has worked for renowned designers such as Jil Sander, Hugo Boss and Vivienne Westwood before starting out on his own in 2007. DIMITRI stands for quality, accuracy and personality.

The label DIMITRI kicks off the year 2017 with two innovations, and for the first time, announces a series from its See Now Buy Now collections and the relaunch of the online shop bydimitri.com. The start signal for the first of the See Now Buy Now collections appearing four times a year and the revamped online shop was sounded in mid-March 2017.
The feminine and Mediterranean DIMITRI collection was realized with model Eva Staudinger, who was in front the camera of Magnus Lechner. Elcin Aiser was in charge of styling, with make-up by Alexander Hofmann. Flirty cocktail and evening gowns, paired with ready-to-wear pieces for every day, reflect diversity and express the DNA of the label.
The collection includes waist-fitted designs made of flowing fabrics with seductive cuts. Loosely falling sling dresses and colorful jackets embody casualness and make for great moods. Hand-woven fringes as well as elaborately crafted applications and jewelry from the Far East make the collection complete. Dominant throughout the collection are the colors black & fuchsia. Expressive leopard print represents the glam rock feeling of the 70s.
Dimitri stands for quality, precision and exceptional tailoring. The collections handcrafted in Italy are marked by timeless elegance, femininity and detailed finesse. Dimitri's authentic designs with slim silhouettes are just as popular among fashion models the likes of model Karolina Kurkova as among international celebrities from the world of film and art.
