ABOUT ROSES ARE RED
ROSES ARE RED brand introduces a luxury collection of elegant clothing and fine ensembles for lounging, addressing to men and women who choose high production quality, pure fabrics and sophisticated design.
Made in Greece, the ROSES ARE RED philosophy focuses on the duality of the garments’ use, being at the same time a cozy lounging attire and a head-turning stylish choice for going-out. It draws its inspiration from poetry and focuses on structural design.
Inspired by the love couplet "Roses are red, Violets are blue", each garment is accompanied by a different poem written by the designer, complimenting the brand's poetic concept. Just as this couplet is the beginning of an incomplete poem, challenging you to continue the rhyme, ROSES ARE RED garments are made for you to continue their story, wearing them and living in their silk touch.
Poetry meets fine garments, giving the freedom of silky feel, both on skin and mind.
