Kopajos – Mykonos Town
Kopajos are the original greek sunglasses born in Mykonos. The main store is on Kalogera Street, and here, the uniqueness lies in 1500+ displayed sunglasses on tables and shelves. There are more than 100 diverse designs, all of them part of the same greek inspiration and Italian manufacture.
One of the distinctive traits of Kopajos is that sunglasses are considered unisex, so the layout doesn’t provide a separation between man and woman. Everybody coming to the store can feel the connection with a favorite pair, regardless of the shape, the material, and the colors.
Precise Optics – Mykonos Town
Precise Optics is a group of shops, with the first one established in 2009. It’s one of the oldest stores of this kind. The layout provides white corian surfaces, stylizing a sort of wave, like the Aegean Sea that surrounds Mykonos.
The brand selection doesn’t arrive at 10, but the quality is considerable. These are the available sunglasses:
Christian Roth, Dior, Elie Saab, Fendi, Garrett Leight, Moschino, Moscot Thom Browne and Tom Ford.
The shops also provide a sunglasses repair service and sell contact lenses.
Mill – Mykonos Town
We suggest Mill Mykonos for the quirckness. The three stores in Mykonos town develop three different ideas. “The limited edition” shop, with a black & white layout, has a fine sorting. The “Concept” store is probably one of the most original creative spaces on the island. The Capsule 3.0 recently opened in Lakka Area is more tourist-oriented.
These are the brands in the three stores: Brevno, Grief 1826, Insight, Kimera Masks, Lessmonday, LMNT, Nacional, Once, Rigards, Rhesusminus Handcrafted In Berlin, Rhude x Thierry Lasry, Supreme, Thrasher Magazine, ValleyEyewear, and Vinylize Eyeworks.
