The British Museum has just celebrated its 225th birthday week, but its ancient contents still inspire new designers and artists.

Jennifer Lawrence’s Golden Globes dress (you know the one!) looked terribly Grecian and ever summer we reach for effortless flat leather Grecian sandals – The Ancient Greek Sandal Company’s playful Ikaria designs are to die for! But there’s a whole lot of not-so-ancient awesomeness on the high street too.

&Other Stories has cracking Greek statue t-shirts in its sale for just under £6 an who doesn’t want to be reminded of azure blue seas and ancient cities under the sun at this time of year?
