With the summer season in full swing, you’ve probably noticed that almost everyone will descend on the Greek island of Mykonos this year for a taste of cosmopolitan flair and a really good suntan to match. Sure, Nammos has been a destination must for some time, but this year the newly-renovated Nammos Village will be putting Mykonos on the fashion protagonists list with the likes of Gucci and Dior pop-up stores opening.
Gucci’s two-floor boutique is set over 120 square metres and is the first in Greece. The interior, staying true to the brand’s Creative Director Alessandro Michele’s mood board, is painted blue from floor to ceiling to reflect the Aegean Sea and interiors echo Gucci’s new collections – a combination of traditional and modern. The store’s ‘cabinet of curiosities’, is filled with ready-to-wear garments, handbags, shoes, and a wide selections of men’s accessories. Just be warned: you might need extra luggage.
But, Gucci isn’t the only pop-up store in Mykonos, French fashion house Dior is also making Nammos Village its home until October 15. The store boasts a white facade evoking tradition architecture of the Cycladic islands of Greece.
Artistic director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, has designed exclusive “J’adior Mykonos” pieces for the occasion, including bodysuits, knitwear, scarves and pendants. Other pieces in limited numbers include embroidered ‘Mykonos’ totes, as well as bracelets, sandals and ballerina flats.
