Still undecided of where to go on your summer holidays? The island of Mykonos is calling the fashion elite with the opening of a Christian Dior pop-up boutique.
The brand has always has a close link to the idyllic Greek island. The founder Christian Dior himself stayed there in the early fifties, helping to popularise the local handwoven fabrics. His designs that year in 1953 featured strong Greek influences that inspired him during his visit.
Fast forward to 2018 and Dior have created a collection of Mykonos-branded pieces, available throughout the summer at their pop-up boutique.
The collection was designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and features striped bodysuits and cashmere sweaters bearing the slogan “J’adior Mykonos.” They have also created a special edition version of the Dior Book Tote Bag with the word “Mykonos” branded across the centre, as well as silk scarves, ballerina pumps, bracelets and sandals with the words Christian Dior Mykonos.
The boutique will also carry an advanced selection of the brand’s Fall/Winter accessories including baseball caps and berets, Oblique zipped pouched and DiorClub1 visors.
The store will reflect the traditional architecture of the island with white façade and geometric lines blending into the natural landscape.
The store will be located in the upscale shopping village Nammas from June 15 to October 15.
