Dear Shaded Viewers,
As the weather gets warmer and thoughts of island hopping in Greece is on the minds of many, FENDI opens its new boutique on the Greek island of Mykonos, in the Aegean Sea inside the Nammos Village, one of the most important summer and shopping destinations located in the south of the island.
The 90 m2 store is on two floors and realized in the traditional white Cvcladic architecture combining Mykonian flair with signature FENDI codes. All categories from womenswear to menswear and accessories will be on hand and numerous windows will fill the rooms with sunlight.
Walls are characterized by rounded shapes and arches emphasized by the use of a light-colored pozzolanica and natural stone. The ceiling is with white joists and bamboo, while the floor is in oak wood with light blue resin inserts.
Cross gender ground floor is dedicated to leather goods, accessories and shoes, exposed on turquoise oxidized copper displays that recall the colors of the seabed. The furniture is a selection of bespoke pieces in travertine and pieces that recall local interiors in wood, rattan, and bamboo. There are two terraces with light blue resin at the floor and raffia and bamboo furnishings.
A FENDI Peekaboo ISeeU Medium bag in white croco, with white leather lining featuring a very precious and shiny finishing together with a Pequin motif wooden handle and palladium accessories, is sold as an exclusive for Europe in the Mykonos boutique.
