Founder Dimitris Parthenis established his first store in Athens in 1970. Nine years later he opened the boutique in Mykonos, a constant source of inspiration, and a stepping-stone for an international career.
In the mid 80s the Parthenis had conquered the Greek market and was considered to have brought something unique to the area. Today Parthenis style remains timeless, unisex concept with easy-living and very simple Greek style.
Today, with his daughter Orsalia Parthenis at the creative helm, the identity remains timeless with a gender-bending, minimal feel, and elegant Greek aesthetic.
Orsalia continues following the same tradition, concept and quality style, insisting on the use of natural materials such as wool, silk, cotton and in loose silhouette, underwear as “Casualwear” and comfortable lines that hug the body the bohemian mood.
Premium basics in high quality fabrics, interspersed with statement pieces, create wardrobe staples for a refined and elevated everyday look.
The brand operates stand-alone boutiques in Greece with flagship stores in Athens and Mykonos, alongside stockists in its native country, in Cyprus, Lebanon, Kuwait, USA and UK. Recently, in February 2016, Parthenis presented a temporary concept store on East London’s Rivington Street.
All the collections are designed and produced in Athens, Greece.
