MonTieu Gaitis Suit has been inspired by Greek artist Yannis Gaitis. Yannis Gaitis (1923-1984) was famous for his anonymous ‘Little men‘ depicting the uniformity and sterility of mass living. Just past the midpoint of the Sixties he began to make his wellknown figure of a little man, which he originally repeated around a central representation and later made into a schematic and standarized figure, constituting a symbol and ironic means of social criticism, repeated in a number of variations. Using this midget as a focus he also created constructions, greater than lifesize sculptural compositions, environments and happenings, which he also transferred to clothes, fabrics and games.
monTieu is an edgy Greek brand that specializes in unique designs inspired by modernist European sculpture. Following in the footsteps of Elsa Schiaparelli / Salvador Dali and Yves Saint Laurent/ Piet Mondrian, monTieu uses the plastic arts as a reference and aims at reinventing the concept of esthetics in fashion design. A winning combination of artistic design, elegant cut and gorgeous silk fabric truly make these dresses works of art in their own right. Composition, plasticity, timelessness. Three concepts that motivate a sculptor to create a work of art with the ultimate goal of conveying meaning. Drawing inspiration from these same concepts, Theodoros Papadopoulos joins sculpture and fashion with his innovative fashion brand, monTieu.
