The Greek Islands Are Coming
For the 4th year in a row, the Greek Pop-Up Shop opens its doors in Beirut.
Ah, the Greek Islands.
Would you look at that? #teleportus
What You'll Find
The Greek Pop-Up Shop is a limited-time only event bringing you more than 500 beachwear and summer essentials from 20 Greek fashion brands (see some of the brands in the list below).
You'll find bikinis, beach towels, hats, beach pouches, beach bags, sandals and accessories.
Most of the items are for women, but there are items for men and kids as well!
Here's an idea of some things you'll find.
Why We Love This Event
Other than greek-island-dreaming, we love this event because its truly personal and homegrown. Greek-Lebanese sisters Tina and Evy Philippides, alongside their mother Michele Manasseh Philippides (of Manasseh), throw the event together every year.
We had a sit-down with Tina (pictured below) to get a better idea of how it's all put together. Tina herself is based in Beirut and actually works at Manasseh (the family business), but she travels quite frequently to Greece throughout the year.
So on the one hand, she's gotten to known all those amazing and unqiue fashion brands in Greece over time. On the other hand, she knows what's missing in Beirut and how to hand-pick the coolest items to cater to us. In other words, it's the perfect combination and we are so excited to see what she got for us this year!

*The opening party to launch the event is on May 18 from 5pm-9pm.*
Sip on Mastika cocktails, listen to tunes by Hiba Safieddine (of Trainstation Studio) along with her sister Rafa, and start getting your hands on all those unique Greek fashion brands you won't find anywhere else in Beirut!
