An elegant diamond in the heart of the city, Excelsior builds a new, fashionable profile and becomes an attraction not only for fashionistas visiting Thessaloniki, but also for its residents, inviting them to experience the magical world of fashion.
One Sunday every month on the mezzanine floor of the Excelsior, fashion meets the sweet flavors and the typical dishes of a hearty brunch. Popular options to start a perfect day such as croque madame, pancakes and cinnamon rolls meet cupcakes, colorful mousses and cookies inspired by fashion and decorated with logos and images of our favorite fashion brands. An ideal setting to relax and enjoy your champagne while browsing fashion, style and design magazines.
The shop window of the Excelsior on Mitropoleos str. has been made available to both emerging and renowned fashion designers, as a means of expression and promotion of their work. The well-known designer Achilleas Taktikos, in collaboration with the Syllogos Ekpaidefseos Neanidon, curated the first shop window that is already grabbing the attention of passers-by. The first dress on display emerged as the winner of an online competition and was inspired by The Excelsior’s history and its values of sustainability. The end result was an elegant dress created by the hotel’s used fabrics from the hotel archive.
The public areas of the hotel have been decorated with artwork by Spyros Halaris and soon there will be smart decorative items and accessories with the artist’s signature for sale. Halaris, based in New York, has worked with major brands (Tom Ford, Salvatore Ferragamo, Sephora, Shiseido, Harrods), as well as newspapers and magazines (Vogue, Sunday Times, L'Officiel) in a variety of applications such as advertising, illustrations, showcase design, product packaging. Using different media and combining digital techniques and design by hand, he creates works of deep sensitivity and high aesthetics. (spiroshalaris.com)
