ODYSSEY TEN

Textile

As stated by its name, Odyssey Ten’s concept is based in Ulysses’ travels, creating premium quality swimwear with a twist. Each new Odyssey Ten collection is inspired by a different rhapsody of the Odyssey.

ODYSSEY TEN

For the summer 2018 collection, a series of patterns was created, based on symbols deriving from the story in the first rhapsody. The 5 chosen symbols: the harp, the waves, the tears, the curls and the Achaean ships, become contemporary patterns, creating unique colourful designs.

The harp, the instrument typically used by the muses to accompany storytelling, as a symbol that signifies the beginning of the story.

The Achaean ships are a symbol of return and victory, but also a reminder that Ulysses’ ship is nowhere to be seen.
