Grecian Delight

Chance - Julia Leach

Chance founder and summer devotee, Julia Leach, was inspired by a trip to Greece for her SS13 line. Chance’s past two collections reflected Julia’s half-French/half-American heritage and focused on Riviera and California style respectively. This spring, along with the world’s-most-perfect striped tees, Julia added simple cotton tunics and caftans in Aegean blues for us to covet.

I asked Julia to share her inspiration images and, if she did a perfume for this collection, what would be the mix of scents?
“If I were going to create a fragrance for this collection it would capture the spirit of late spring and early summer on the beautiful island of Paros.  White flowers, including narcissus and sea lily, blended with an undercurrent of lemon, thyme, and splash of salty sea air.  These feminine, light scents with a touch of earthiness evoke the essence of Greece and would bring back memories of my magical trip.”
