Dimitrios designs clothes for women with self-confidence; women of all types and personalities – strong women with a clear sense of personal style. The line between extreme opposites, such as soft/hard or innocent/corrupt, is what makes DIMITRI so exciting, and reflects the vibrant strength of Italian elegance.
Spring/Summer 2017 - DIMITRI is now launching its own Men's Capsule collection, which sets the two benchmarks for the quality and refinement of the cuts. The collection was inspired by casual dandies like Alain Delon and James Dean – fashion-conscious men who also integrate colors and patterns confidently in their outfit.
The looks of the men's collection are extraordinary and yet wearable, their individual parts can be combined wonderfully. In all, the designer is consistently pursuing his Italian fashion style, creating the favorite pieces that last several seasons.
