Giorgos Dedes and his fur collar

Giorgos is a promo manager at Heaven Music and one of the best-dressed men around. His open heart and brilliant spirit have made him the life of any Athenian party, as his friends are countless and loyal. Here, he is introducing IIWT to the cleverest way a man can wear a fur collar.

At the age of 25, one should get a proper black, two button suit.

What clothes have you had a fixation with, in the past?
A short sleeved, dark blue Alexander McQueen shirt from the collections he designed himself. It is so worn out, that nowadays I only wear it under my sweaters.
Tell us about this collar you chose to be photographed with.
It is a black mink collar that I wear instead of a scarf.

How to you like wearing it?
It looks great with jackets as well as suits. I usually wear it semi-hidden, it is so soft and it keeps me very warm when the weather is cold.

Why do you like it?
It’s an accessory that you would usually expect a woman to wear. But once you see it worn by a man, you get the picture!

What is the story behind it?
It is a gift of pure friendship. My friend Eleni Voulgaraki gave it to me. She comes from the “fur town” of Kastoria, and the collar was made by her childhood friend Apostolos Lazarou who owns the brand www.lazarouvassou.gr.

What do you see in its future?
I hope it grows into a fur coat so I can sell it and cash in big time!
