My Neighbourhood: Mykonos, Greece

Dsquared2 founders Dan and Dean Caten love the Mykonos lifestyle.

Not only are identical twins Dan and Dean Caten co-founders of fashion house Dsquared2 (and Designers of the Year 2017 judges), but they’re travel partners, too. Each summer, the design duo heads to Mykonos, Greece, for their annual vacation, where they take a break from the fashion scene to soak up the sun, stroll the streets and dance the night away.


1. Sunset Sips

Located right on the seawall of the old harbour of Mykonos, we often go to JackieO’ Bar for sunset cocktails and the live performances and music.

2. Beach, Please!

We love beach life, and the beautiful Psarou Beach is the perfect place to enjoy it.

3. Wandering Ways

We love to walk in the tiny streets of Mykonos and have a coffee while looking at the windows and shopping for handmade beaded jewellery. (And, of course, we always stop by our boutique.)

The marble floors of the spa were sourced from the neighbouring Naxos Island.

4. Luxe Life

Belvedere Hotel Six Senses Spa lies among lush gardens of cypress trees, bougainvilleas and wild laurels, right in the heart of Mykonos Town. We come here to take care of ourselves and relax with special treatments.


5. Starstruck

When we want to get away from the crowd and enjoy a different evening, we go to Cine Manto. This botanical garden offers an open-air movie theatre where you can watch films under the stars.
