“The Always Grand Collection”, signed by Mary Katrantzou, LALAoUNIS, and Zeus+Δione

Bringing a century and a half of timeless elegance to the present, Hotel Grande Bretagne, A Luxury Collection Hotel, presents “The Always Grand Collection”, a new limited-edition series signed by the prestigious brands Mary Katrantzou, LALAoUNIS, and Zeus+Δione. The collection features unique fashion items and accessories, exclusively created in celebration of the Hotel’s 150th anniversary.

The designs are inspired by the architectural character and the decorative elements of the iconic building, a landmark for both residents and visitors of central Athens. Materials such as gold, silver, leather, and silk intertwine in unique stories of luxury, revealing each brand’s creative perspective on the history of the “Grand Dame of Athens”.

Mary Katrantzou

Internationally acclaimed for her masterful use of color, designer Mary Katrantzou has created a stunning scarf inspired by the Hotel’s iconic façade. Drawing inspiration from the building’s original designs, the “queen of prints” has crafted a wearable piece of art that blends neoclassical elements with vibrant hues, all in luxurious silk twill.


With a rich heritage in the fields of luxury and craftsmanship, LALAoUNIS Jewelry House has created a series of designs highlighting the unique relationship between the building and the city. Handcrafted by artisans, the pendants and earrings designed by CEO and Artistic Director Maria Lalaounis, evoke the doors and windows of Hotel Grande Bretagne, as they open up to the blue sky of Attica. These creations are available in two impressive versions: one in 18-carat gold with a semi-precious turquoise stone, and another design in Sterling silver 925 with amazonite. 


Incorporating elements of Greek culture and heritage and utilizing local craftsmanship, Zeus+Δione has created a series of handmade items characterized by exceptional quality, meticulous craftsmanship, innovative design, and refined simplicity. Signed by the brand’s Creative Director, Marios Schwab, the line includes leather clutches and pouches, candles encased in ceramic and leather cases with embossed designs, echoing the Hotel’s distinctive balconies and façade, as well as a special jacquard shirt with a fabric produced in the town of Soufli, the historic Greek capital of silk.

The limited-edition pieces of “The Always Grand Collection” are available for purchase at GB Corner Gifts & Flavors, in-store and online.
