Hermina X Paolita

Behind The Collection

Greek mythology and the essence of the Aegean come together as luxury resort and swimwear designer, Paolita and jewellery brand Hermina Athens, combine their hand-crafted approach and signature styles to create a bespoke jewellery collection, bringing a unique addition to your summer wardrobe.

Both from Grecian origins, the founders of both brands, Paolita’s Anna Paola and Hermina Athens’ Konstantina Pantelous, share a strong visual aesthetic reflecting their upbringing, where Greek mythology holds a prominent presence.

Hermina X Paolita

The Design Process

The collaboration specifically references the illustrative figures in Paolita’s iconic ‘Circe’s Garden’ print seen in SS22 ‘Mediterranean Love'.

Within each hand-drawn design, Anna Paola’s exploration of the region’s coastline is evident with cultural and historical references weaved throughout. The collection spans from Greek mythology to Roman mosaics, as well as a nod to the hand-painted ceramics synonymous with southern Spain.

According to the myth, Circe was a beautiful enchantress, that would lure men to her island with her singing and later transform them into animals. These exotic creatures feature on all thirteen pieces of the collab with lions and flamingos, reimagined in rich turquoise, Aperol and green enamels with different style chains for a perfect layered look.

The Design Process

Founded in 2012 Hermina Athens was born out of Konstantina’s love of jewellery which enabled her to express her creativity. Her designs are inspired by Greek antiquity and culture, with the idea that every piece is timeless and can be passed down through generations. Each piece is handmade in Athens, using local artisans and experienced silversmiths.

This dedication to a hand-crafted process is evident in the intricacies of each unique piece, which has been created in Hermina’s workshop using the traditional lost wax casting method before applying enamel in three different colours to achieve the vivacious tones of Paolita’s prints.

A Note From The Designers

I am incredibly excited to announce our latest collaboration with one of our favourite Jewellery brands, Hermina Athens. We first discovered Hermina in early 2021 and immediately fell in love with the hand-crafted and antiquated feel of their gorgeous designs.

It has been such a joy to see founder, Konstantina Pantelous, immortalise the Circe’s Garden print in such a unique way. I have loved working with her and the Hermina Athens team to deliver such a beautiful collection and we hope these special pieces may also one day be passed down to future generations.

A Note From The Designers

The inspiration behind the pieces was Paolita’s beautiful print “Circe’s Garden”. We wanted to bring to life the vibrant colours of the print, so we chose enamel as the best way to do that.
“What we love about Paolita is that our aesthetics have the same Greek roots and Greek mythology has a very strong and essential presence in the designs of both brands
