Pericles Kondylatos: Greek women had European aesthetics but now overweight girls stick their bellies out

Pericles Kondylatos

Greek jewellery designer Pericles Kondylatos expressed his views on overweight women and aesthetics nowadays and the feud that has erupted lately with Nikos Apostolopoulos.

In speaking to "Your Breakfast" show, Pericles Kondylatos said: "You would say that Greek women are women who have a European aesthetic and a sense of moderation, now I don't see that anymore out on the street. I see overweight girls sticking their bellies out."

"I don't have a problem with the extra kilos, but with body shaming and all these movements, we've lost our temper a little. It's not possible for a man who doesn't like something to show off his fat."

He then added: “We can't see adverts with overweight women dancing ballet or adverts for sanitary napkins that show us that the model is a 100kg woman who throws them out."

"Someone must come out with courage and say it because we live in the age of political correctness where we are all afraid to speak".

He also stated: "We have lost our temper, and I call on people with the same views as me on fashion, aesthetics and culture not to be afraid to come out and speak. We will not be reversed by the right things we know.

"The right thing is one thing; it's the healthy thing, what the doctors say."

Regarding Nikos Apostolopoulos, Pericles Kondylatos commented: "I have not regretted my statements. I said that if I have been a bit sharp and strict, it was because my professional status and that of Mr Zoulias and our means of livelihood were judged, and we had to defend ourselves.

"This is what we discussed with our lawyer; this is our line; the way we reacted was purely a defence to protect ourselves from a malicious comment that affected our professional and livelihood status. Therefore, defending we could do them".
