You had me at Pancakes
Wednesday, 20th July 2016
When Greek designer Athena Procopiou invites you for breakfast don’t say no . Especially when it’s combining two of my favorite indulgences Pancakes and Fringed shawls and kimonos. We met at Notting Hill’s hottest new brunch spot located on Westbourne Grove Farmacy . It’s perfect for all you healthy eaters out there .Their food is vegan , vegetarian free from dairy , refined sugars additives and chemicals .
The menu is full of delicious cold pressed juices made on site and good old faithfuls like avocado on toast . Athena also ordered me a ginger shot that comes served in a plastic syringe it’ not for the faint hearted . Am not sure what else was in the shot but it was enough to clear anyones sinuses . Pancakes were the order of the day . Totally delicious and surprisingly thanks to Farmacy very nutritious !
Athena herself is a super relaxed lady with amazing style . Her signature designs are fabulous fringed shawls and kimono style jackets al la Stevie Nicks .So basically my dream . They are perfect to wear over jeans in the city or with a bikini on the beach . She has just launched her ready to wear line with a whole lots of super easy silk printed dresses in gorgeous shapes .She is the print queen and designs each print by hand herself .
Here are a few of my favorite pieces from her collection . I love the off the shoulder print Maxi dresses and obviously anything with a fringe !
