What is a good outfit without an appropriately good setting? As we commence planning our new summer wardrobe, we couldn’t help but look for fabulous new locations for us to show them off in — and by that, we don’t mean fashion weeks or the streets of our home city. We mean vacation. The sun, pool, cocktail kind of vacation. The kind of vacation where you lounge for hours by the private pool, reading erotic novels by Anaïs Nin, and get tipsy at inappropriate (but totally appropriate) hours of the day. Preferably, with your boo – but sometimes (most times), your BFF is an equally ideal partner. For this summer, we in particular have laid our eyes on the new design hotel Casa Cook Kos, on the mythological Greek isle of Kos. Designed by Ilias Mastrominas and Berlin-based design agency Lambs and Lions, the hotel draws on the legacies of cubism and the simplicity of modernist design, in natural materials and hand-made details all around. Add to this interior design by Annabell Kutucu, evoking the pulled-back aesthetic of contemporary luxury. Positioned directly on the beach, it carries its very own beach club, spa, gym, and restaurant, so you don’t even need to leave the comfort of your temporary home to have a magical time – but if you do, the beautiful barren landscape of the island is all around, while the historic city of Kos is but 16 kilometers away.
