Perspectives, Konstantinos Flamiatos


Another week, another guest blogger! We’re grateful and excited to introduce the creative mind of Konstantinos Flamiatos, a 28 year-old Graphic Designer / Assistant Fashion Photographer from Athens, Greece. Konstantinos is responsible for the successful design blog entitled, The Magenta Links (a must have bookmark for our ever-curious viewers). We were eager to dive in and pick Konstantinos’ brain before he began offering his insights…

11: Mr. Flamiatos, we’re curious if the music scene is any different in Greece. What are you listening to right now?
Konstantinos: M.I.A. – Pull Up The People

11: Who influenced your style?
Konstantinos: Stephen Hillenburg, creator of Spongebob Squarepants. Oh, and Amancio Ortega.

11: Wow, that’s quite the diverse coupling of inspiration there. I too have always wanted to live in a pineapple under the sea. I’d imagine with such a dapper set of duds, a mustache would be only fitting. Do you think a mustache is ever inappropriate however?
Konstantinos: When drinking beer with lots of foam.

11: Touché sir. Alright, with mustaches aside, what is your favorite pair of shoes?
Konstantinos: Khaki Converse Chuck Taylor All Stars and Pharrell Williams’ SpongeBob Bapes.

11: I should have known! More Spongebob love. All joking aside, do you think fashion is important?
Konstantinos: Current fashion represents current affairs.

11: Are there any rules of fashion that you never break or choose to break?
Konstantinos: I love brown with black, though they’re not the best colors to combine (sometimes I wear black socks with every color of shoes).

11: I’m also guilty as charged of the brown and black combination. I am not however, guilty of rocking a man-bag. What are your feelings on the man-bag?
Konstantinos: I’m currently looking for my perfect Kelly-bag.

11: I’ll be honest with you Konstantinos, I had to Google the Kelly-bag (named after Grace Kelly and produced by Hermés). Learn something new everyday! Now, aside from the latest fashions in Kelly-bags, what is the first thing you look at in another person’s outfit?
Konstantinos: The design on their t-shirts and the amount of glitter on them.

11: I would hope you make some killer t-shirts to support this next question. If you were running for President, what would your slogan be?
Konstantinos: Wear your best and meet me at the polls.

11: With that said, you’re very likely to sport a sexy politician hair-do. Would you rather sport a Mullet or a Jerry Curl?
Konstantinos: If I had hair I’d go for a Jerry Curl in light brown with golden highlights, (Oh, how desperate I’m for hair).

11: You’re not even joking with that Jerry Curl, highlights and all! Well Konstantinos, we’re looking forward to reading what you have to say this entire week. Perhaps there will be a few more Spongebob Squarepants inspired items.
