Closet Raid: The Art of Cool Island Chic

We bring you a new episode of Closet Raids, a true and honest talk with women whose style has caught SUF’s eye. This time, we had a blast rummaging through Iliana’s wardrobe, a hospitality PR agent with a talent for Greek Island dressing and casual Boho chic. For our shoot, she showcased this summer and fall’s trend for Lace to illustrate her interview.

How would you describe your personal style? My style could be described as smart casual with hints of sexy , especially during summer you could describe my style as island Boho chic…You can see me the entire summer season wearing my ripped jean shorts, wavy messy hair, lots of different stacked bracelets and airy backless tops. 
What do you consider sexy? A glance of tanned skin is always sexy!  A loose t-shirt showing a shoulder, a backless top or a boyfriend jean with a short top showing a flat tanned tummy paired with a gorgeous smile…that’s sexy!
What is your earliest fashion memory?  Jeans…it was always the jeans paired with fancy tops or casual simple shirts depending on the occasion… my mother had to fight with me in order to remove my short jean jacket on top of a cocktail formal dress before heading to a wedding reception!

 

Blue Denim cotton shirt, Cream Lace shorts, Tan and Black strappy suede sandals all from Zara

Your worst fashion moment?  Every time I buy something I think it’s THE MOST AMAZING purchase EVER, but then sits for years in the closet waiting for the right moment that never comes!

The oldest piece in your wardrobe? A pair of jeans from River Island, that I had bought from London many years ago (but soon they will become a nice pair of shorts that I will paint, rip and destroy all in DIY fashion!)
Your most worn piece? A pair of ripped jeans shorts that I painted and destroyed myself (I guess you can call me a DIY freak).  I have worn it so many times in formal and casual occasions.

If you were on a desert island what would you take with you? My seashell necklace, my bikini, my wafer Ray-Ban sunglasses and my coconut body spray.
Your fashion pet- hate?  XL women in super tight short Lycra dresses….
Your favourite shoes?  Ballerinas and sky high pumps… I always drool on the Giuseppe Zanotti store window!!!      
Cream, Grey and Nude combo works great against tanned skin! Flowy cream top, Grey Silk brocade shorts and Nude Suede pumps with concealed platform.
If you were brave enough what would you dare to wear?I can wear anything as long as I feel like it. At that moment, I’m viewing fashion as a game…I can wear long gowns, boyfriend loose jeans, tiny shorts, weird shoes and funky sunglasses depending on my mood and the occasion.
What trends are you banking on at the moment? Lace in any shape and form and all kinds of shorts!  I love and collect items in cream and powder colors.
What is the next purchase that you are drooling over?  A cream Balenciaga handbag 🙁 ONE DAY IT WILL BE MINE!

  • One last stroll in Dubai's Citywalk this weekend, admiring the modern architecture... after 6 years in Dubai I am going to terribly miss the spirit of this city... where literally everything is possible and where you can only dream big. If only most people and countries had that same ambition, the world would be a much happier place
