As the co-owner of Decades, the legendary vintage boutique in Hollywood, Christos Garkinos has helped thousands of women find their dream items, whether they’re celebrities or not. He’s now bringing his impeccable eye to a clothing line for HSN, Eureka by Christos Garkinos, which just launched. With prices ranging from $60 to $120, anyone can afford to take home a piece of his style.
OK! checked in with Garkinos to hear about some of his celebrity inspiration for the line. The pieces are often named after the celebrities who inspired them. For example, the Sophia top! “Sophia [Loren] was my first ever celebrity sighting! It was my 15th birthday, and she was making an appearance at my local mall in Michigan to showcase her new fragrance,” Garkinos explains. “I begged my parents to take me to see her. I climbed on a chair, and she walked by in a beautiful peasant blouse, those glasses and hair. I waved at her. She waved back. And in my excitement, I fell off my chair.”
There’s also a shirtdress motivated by Courtney Love. Garkinos says,”…One of my favorite fashion moments was the grunge era of the ’90′s. I can totally imagine Courtney wearing this with a pair of Dr. Martens.”
The line with HSN is a dream come true, but Garkinos isn’t done dreaming just yet. Look out for a disco season one day. “I would love to do a collection based on Diana Ross—maybe without the sequin one-piece pantsuits!”
