Must-Have: Dior’s Book Tote

I am in love, yes IN LOVE! This is definitely the  chicest bag you could add to your summer wardrobe, DIOR‘s embroidered Book Tote! A veritable invitation to travel by the House’s creative director, Maria Grazia Chiuri, an evocation of sunshine, inspired by Mexican crafts, it is the perfect luxury staple piece to rock throughout the season. First seen at the DIOR S/S 2018 runway show, it sports geometrical motifs and requires more than thirty-two hours of work and over one million two hundred thousand stitches to create an interplay of arrestingly lovely patterns in mesmerizing shades of green, orange, red, fuchsia, violet and blue. It’s crafted in the fashion house’s studio in Paris.

Although the tote has just been released this season, celebrities all over are sporting the brand in a range of colors and customized names.

Check out the photos below to see how the elegant piece is made:

If you are dreaming of a limited edition piece, I recommend visiting DIOR’s pop-up store on the Greek island of Mykonos this summer at the upscale Nammos shopping village until Oct. 15, 2018.

There you can find exclusive pieces, including DIOR Book Tote bags featuring the name of the island woven into the canvas as well as striped bodysuits and sweaters, silk cravats and cotton pareos bearing the slogan «J’adior Mykonos

Great news is that the DIOR book tote is here to stay and has been designed in many different versions for F/W 2018 as well as for Cruise 2019.

Louis Vuitton’s Pop-up Store in Mykonos

To celebrate the return of summer, Louis Vuitton has opened its first pop-up store exclusively dedicated to its “summer resort” product range in Mykonos, Greece. I was invited to experience this very special new shop but couldn’t make it due to my trip to the US. It is so beautiful that I have to share it with you.
In a sleek and bright setting, a selection of leather goods, women’s and men’s ready-to-wear, and accessories are brought together in a range that has been especially designed to reflect the area’s warm and gentle weather and the flavour of summer holidays. It will be available to visitors until October 2012.

The store is part of a new sales experience and a new interpretation of sophistication. Louis Vuitton presents collections that have been specially designed to reflect and enrich the “Summer Resort” spirit, synonymous with relaxation and well-being.

Protection from the dazzling brightness of the Greek sun is available in the form of beautifully crafted sunglasses, which enhance the wearer’s features with shaded timeless elegance. Just looking at those photos makes you want to go to Mykonos, isn’t it?!
