As tout le monde descends on the Greek island of Mykonos this summer, holidaymakers are set to enjoy an injection of style alongside their suntanning. The newly-renovated luxury fashion destination Nammos Village will be a hub for designer pop-ups for beach-to-browsing bliss. Gucci’s two-floor boutique set over 120 square metres and evoking a resort atmosphere is Bazaar’s first stop, selling a wide range of pieces including women’s ready-to-wear, handbags and shoes and a selection of men’s accessories. Sky blue walls, floors and ceiling reflect the Aegean Sea and interiors echo Gucci’s new collections – a combination of traditional and modern, and industrial and romantic. The store, labelled a ‘cabinet of curiosities’, much like Alessandro Michele’s collections season after season, might mean we’ll need to purchase extra luggage on our return.
