Nikos Krithariotis after his graduation in Business and Finance from Boston College MA launched his own men’s wear line 5226 as he is a strong believer of the effortless luxury.
A man wearing 5226 is not a fashion victim following the trends blindly without taste of his personal taste. He is a young, sophisticated individual, who wants to infuse his active life with style, without compromising neither his comfort nor his ease.
The main body of the collection is formed by updated classics: a well fitted suit, double or single breasted, a soft leather jacket that looks like it has been resting in your wardrobe forever, a trench coat that pays tribute to a young aristocrat and a cashmere cardigan suede details that has been always a must for a man’s basics.
There is a strong interaction between the sporty and the urban, the casual and the formal, the classic and the contemporary.
The fabrics are being selected with a lot of care fulfilling the dual purpose of comfort and elegance. Cashmere, flannel, leather, suede, neoprene and the finest wool are the main textiles of the collection in various hues of brown, blue, grey and black. Stripes and checks are mainly used for shirts made by the finest cotton.
The final outcome confirms the motto of the label: “Style is the ability to elevate, through the most subtle details, an extraordinary existence into a living work of art”.
