Slim Pickings

To describe Slim Greige's raisons d’être requires a liberal use of hyphens. Pictured here with her beloved pooch (@ mrgreigejunior) and photographs, including one of “my dear mama”, Slim — who is of Italian, Greek and Scandinavian ancestry — trained in fashion design in Rome, where, at the Alta Moda, she rubbed shoulders with Dolce & Gabbana’s muse Marpessa Hennink (she has also enjoyed a 30-year friendship with the skincare pioneer Dr. Barbara Sturm). Previously an art director and fashion model, Slim has restored properties in the former British West Indies, the U.S. and Italy. Then there’s her photography and literary endeavours, which “allow me to share insider knowledge with a wider audience interested in style, culture and travel suggestions, and so on”.
