Katie Tsouros launched her bran Akaterina in November 2018, and since then has gone from strength to strength. And she is back this week with her second collection!
Katie’s online platform Akaterina is a carefully curated lifestyle brand focused on jewellery. She carefully curated collections of jewellery released around a specific theme or season, drawing on her own background in art, culture and fashion, and the brand itself is inspired by Tsouros’s Greek heritage which is pretty special.
Her first collection was a collection of eight earring styles titled ‘A Little Party Never Killed Nobody’, which was a sellout success. Pieces from the first collection were featured by influencers such as Vogue Williams and Amy Neville and by stylists Courtney Smith and Rebecca Rose, as well as international influencers Veronica Baez, Lily Tijon, Frederique Bos, Felicia Evalina and Anneli Bush!! Not bad for a first collection 🙂
Katie Tsouros says; “I had such a wonderful reaction to the first collection. Everyone loved the pieces, the experience and the packaging. The Blondies in particular were a huge success and a complete sellout”
The second collection for Akaterina is titled ‘Sunset at Sounion’ and is a summer collection inspired by the site of the Temple of Poseidon on the Cape of Sounion in the Athens Riviera. This collection presents nine different styles of earrings and one cocktail ring.
The pieces feature natural materials such a turquoise and raffia and, as with the previous collection, are statement pieces named with meaning and each with a story to tell (and we know how much I love a piece with a story behind it). The collection ranges from €35 to €75 and all earrings are nickel and allergy free.
Katie Tsouros says; “It’s really important to me that each collection has a narrative and that the pieces are cohesive and have individual stories to tell too. This collection, as with a lot of the brand itself, is an ode to the ancient world and the figures that inhabited it. It’s about a certain feeling, a sense of freedom and discovery, with some artistry and adventure too.”
