Leading lights of the London fashion stage Temperley London have announced the opening of their first pop-up store in Porto Cervo, an idyllic cultural hotspot on the northern coast of Sardinia.
The London based brand will spend the summer months in the exclusive holiday location, showcasing a specially curated edit of their Spring/Summer and Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. Drawing sartorial inspiration from the Mediterranean surroundings, the colourful printed midi-skirts of the Summer 2018 collection speak of days lounging by the poolside, while the glitz of the label’s sequinned and ruffled eveningwear is ideal for sipping cocktails at sunset.
The pop-up will be hosted in Promenade Du Port, a luxury retail outlet hosting around sixty concept stores, restaurants and designer boutiques. The Sardinian shopping hub features fashion, art, food and design by a range of emerging and established brands.
Curator of Promenade Du Port Andrea Brugnoni said that Temperley London’s ‘‘modern, bohemian spirit and artisan skill will certainly be appreciated by our many discerning visitors this summer. Porto Cervo’s translucent sea and spectacular coastline will provide the perfect backdrop for this SS18 collection.”
With its rugged coastlines, white sand beaches and brilliant turquoise sea, this corner of Sardinia is a suitably picturesque location for Temperley London’s escape from the big smoke. The pop-up will be open from June until September, ready for holiday shoppers.
