Get a fashion pass to the land of urban geeks and have fun with the stereotypes!
The first lesson you get to learn from fashion is that you can do absolutely anything you want, without falling into any category in particular, simply by taking your cues from the trends and transforming them into your very own personal style, attitude and way. Today we visited Ilias Stergiopoulos, the bartender at Mary Pickford bar and we asked him to join us on a special and very difficult task: to make nerdy look casual and cool. Wonder how on earth we managed to make these two dudes in pink look hot?
THIS IS HOW YOU DO IT
·Indulge in a piece of clothing that shows off your nerdy side but limit the fun to only one. Harry is sporting a jacket while Ilias is casually comfortable in a pair of trousers. Close your eyes and think of the two items in one outfit and you will know what we mean you need to avoid.
·To be on the safe side, you can keep the rest of your look plain, like a canvas, as we did with this all – white outfit. Act a little bold and go with the three-color flow, by creating a nice, college style look.
·Shoes are of outmost importance! Break your sneaker habit every once in a while and put on your beautiful brogues that will honor your sartorial status, especially when you take them out for a lovely Diplomatico Reserva Exclusiva cocktail.
·It’s summertime so we don’t expect you to wear a tie, it would be too awkward. Even in a business environment, a loosely buttoned up shirt works wonders alongside a lovely, perfectly cut blazer.

THE BARTENDER, ILIAS STERGIOPOULOS
A professional bartender for the last 11 years, since the summer of 2013 Ilias has been behind the Baba Au Rum bar, the spot with the biggest influence in the field of fine cocktails.
This summer, Ilias will be mixing up alchemies at Mary Pickford. He loves traveling to distant lands, discovering new territories and looking for fine distillates.
ABOUT THE BAR, MARY PICKFORD
This is a concept cocktail bar collaboration between Baba au Rum and Varoulko Seaside, situated in a starlit terrace overlooking historic Mikrolimano. The Mary Pickford Bar was inspired by majestic art deco bars, where travellers enjoyed their drinks while sailing to their destination on the other side of the ocean. Right in the heart of an era where Mary Pickford reigned supreme, a movie star and the ultimate pop idol of her time.
At the Mary Pickford bar, the offspring of Varoulko and Baba Au Rum, they love good cocktails, beautiful presentations, chilled wines and creative tapas that are the perfect pairing to the bar’s drink suggestions.
