biography: Pinelopi Loizidou
What I really love about them... is the fact that they tell a story...
I can never look at a pair of shoes... without trying to figure out the woman who wears them. Does she work? Is she single?
Is she a free spirit? Is she happy?...
I look at them and I imagine the woman rising out of them... kissing someone... falling in love... rushing to work....
dancing, as she is whirling and twirling gracefully....
fighting for her dreams!
Every woman has a secret. Stories she wants to keep only
A handbag is the place where she can hide her secret world. This handbag must be unique and beautiful, just like her.
It must be a part of her character and her way of living.
I design little stories!
