Transforming Boys Into Greek Gods

Le Petit Croissier is focusing on Greek culture for their 2017 swimwear collection. During the Gran Canaria Swimwear Fashion Week this past June, young models were transformed into Greek gods.

The Greek god of the sea, Poseidon, made his appearance in a brilliant brief-style swim trunk featuring a turquoise underwater landscape. The boy’s presentation was made more authentic with his golden spear, or trident as they call it, and white fish net.

Many of the styles included the meander pattern, a decorative border made from a continuous line which was a common ornament used in ancient Greece. The boy in the marble print trunks with the towel draped over his arm had this pattern on his waistband. We also saw it used in the swim shorts worn by the boy in black shirt and headband.

We could literally use this collection as an educational lesson for Greek history and culture. What a great way to give your boy a fashionable look while teaching them an appreciation for Greek lifestyle. Discover more about the designer of this collection at Gabriel Croissier.
