Founded in 2017 by Stavroula Giannoulatou, Greek Archaic Kori, under the company MILLA STAMATELOS IOANNIS KAI SIA EE, is a premium resortwear brand and its style signifies “Helios” (aka: the sun), the powerful light, the Mediterranean sea, the Greek islands and the wind.
The brand has been named after the Archaic Beauty of Kores.
“In Ancient Greece during the Archaic period (600 – 480 BCE) there has been the rising of the statues depicting female figures known as “kores”. Kores were almost always standing, in a forward pose with the leg extended slightly forward and with one hand pulling their dress as if not to step on it. The free hand was holding an offering to the god or goddess they served.”
The brand is founded in Greece and it is designed and produced in brand’s Athens headquarters. Each collection embodies an urban ease paired with comfort, sophistication, and versatility. Greek Archaic Kori is made for women all over the world, at any age, who appreciates simple lines as the styles can be worn from day to night.
The brand's signature aery dresses, beach kaftans, cover-ups and tunics are made of natural and high quality materials, which are more environmentally responsible; cool linen, pure cotton and silk. Every fabric is tested for its hand-feel, durability, and design. Linen is a classic choice for summer as it is lightweight, breathable and it is easy to wear as it is the ultimate choice for holiday destinations.
