Six luxury fashion pop-up stores to visit this summer
Credit cards at the ready
With the summer season in full swing, you've probably noticed a common theme when checking your Instagram feeds as of late. Whether posts by your friends, family, A-listers and celebrities, it seems like everyone (and we mean everyone) is vacationing in Mykonos, Ibiza or Saint Tropez at the moment.
Now, you'll be able to shop the latest collections from Christian Louboutin, Dior, Gucci, Oscar de la Renta, Loewe and Zimmermann, as well as limited-edition and dedicated capsule collections for each of the cities. Here's where to spend your time this summer...
Nammos Village in Mykonos
Welcome to Loubi Beach! The man behind the infamous red sole has opened the doors to his newest pop-up store in Mykonos and it sure is dreamy. With an interior that boasts the maison's most iconic symbols and has a party-like vibe, the pop-up showcases some of the key styles from the brand's Fall/Winter '18 collection displayed on a red background with graphic red neon lights.
Maria Grazia Chiuri has chosen Nammos Village for Dior's newest pop-up shop this summer and it is absolutely beautiful. After being greeted by a completely white façade evoking the island's traditional architecture, guests then walk into the boutique which houses a slew of exclusive pieces and a range of accessories. The pop-up store will be home to a limited-edition collection titled 'J’Adior Mykonos' as well.
Gucci is known for seriously impressive boutique set-ups and the brand's newest pop-up in Mykonos is no exception. The two-floor boutique is spread across 120 square metres and hosts women’s ready-to-wear, handbags, shoes and a selection of men’s accessories. You might want to bring extra luggage for shopping at Gucci's pop-up alone...
Oscar de la Renta
Following the success of its pop-up store in Athens, Oscar de la Renta set its sights on Mykonos next and just opened the doors to its new boutique on the Greek island. Mimicking the ancient stones and architectural style of Greece, the 300-square-foot store is quite different than any other of the brand's boutiques and hosts an exclusive capsule collection for its Mykonos customers (you can shop for pieces like tunics, caftans, palazzo pants, swimwear and towel ponchos), as well as ready-to-wear, accessories and jewellery pieces.
Loewe, one of the many brands to open in The Dubai Mall extension, is opening up a temporary shop in Ibiza, which also coincides with the launch of the brand's new sunglasses collection. For the second time in a row, you'll be able to shop the Loewe x Paula's Ibiza line which consists of ready-to-wear, shoes and accessories, as well as the label's iconic leather items for men and women. The pop-up shop will be held at the Ibiza Museum of Contemporary Art, MACE, where there's currently a temporary exhibit by artist Edmund De Waal, too.
Zimmermann's resort-ready silhouettes have officially hit the French Riviera. It's the label's second European store and here you can shop its newest collections in the store that's filled with light colours, earthy tones and stone counter tables. Also, to celebrate the new store opening, Zimmermann has debuted a capsule collection specifically for men. The collection includes two styles of swimming shorts available in four colourways.
