Shopping at Port Adriano
Well, there's shopping and there's shopping. Today we're going to forget about the Friday big shop in the Asda and concentrate on shopping in a good way – the pleasant experience when you browse beautiful things that you don't need in nice surroundings!
And what could be nicer than the designer (Philippe Starck) harbour of Port Adriano where everything is just so stylish – the yachts, the bars, the restaurants – everything. This August the port brings us the second edition of its After Sun pop up market, an initiative that brings together designers and artisans in mini shipping containers on the harbour side. A bit like Shoreditch Boxpark but without the drizzle.
The Port wants to promote local designers and manufacturers and not the usual commercial brands that can be found almost anywhere and support local and sustainable design. Named After Sun, because it's a place which can be visited after a day in the sun on the beach or by the pool and before dropping into one of the bars or restaurants for a drink or dinner.
As you can see in the video, the little containers are full of nice things - different fashion brands, swimsuits, sunglasses, footwear, decoration – and all with a touch of style and individuality, and it looks to be a perfect environment for hitting the shops on a balmy summer night.
The dates for your diary are 14th to 26th August 2018, 18:00 to 22:00 each day. See you there?
