Monsieur Chypre

Thursday, January 10, 2013

Erotokritos Antoniadis, named after the main protagonist of medieval epic poem, a hero “born from the labors of love”. For 15 years, his label EROTOKRITOS has been seducing women of all ages, drawn to collections that go back and forth between the sophistication of Paris and the dolce vita of Cyprus. 
Monsieur Chypre - A Short Film With Erotokritos from AntoineAsseraf+RenéHabermacher on Vimeo.


France and Cyprus, Paris and Nicosia, it’s a long-distance love affair.
In Erotokritos's epic fashion story Monsieur Chypre, by directors Antoine Asseraf & René Habermacher, they come to life: Loan Chabanol, channeling the nostalgia of Marguerite Duras’ The Lover, plays the tormented Parisian woman, cracking at the surface, while my beloved illustrator and screenwriter Constantino Kouyialis, in his first first on-screen role, plays the seductive eponym hero, a modern day Alexis Zorbas.

The fashion film 10 months in the making, taking place not only in Paris but in numerous locations in Nicosia, in the salt lake facing the Hala Sultan Tekke mosque in Larnaca, in the Almyra and Anassa deluxe hotels, in small taverns by the side of the road, or in the majestic monument carved directed in the stone, the tomb of the Kings in Paphos. All this, to the original soundtrack of Lori Schonberg and Shane Aspegren, members of Ça Va Chéri(Download it here).

Here are some beautiful stills from the short film and below some downloadable goodies from Mon. Chypre.
