If a Cretan identity is clearly manifested in the craftsmanship and art of living of its inhabitants, it hardly hides a cosmopolitan character, undoubtedly due to the influences left by the Mycenaeans, Romans, Saracens, Venetians and Ottomans who occupied the island over the centuries.
Renata Leitao offers clothing, perfumes, beauty products, jewelry, sunglasses, interior design in collaboration with many Greek brands (Ancient Kallos clothing, Greek Archaic Kori, Zeus + Dione;
jewelry by Antonia Karra and Katerina Psoma; home accessories Themis Z) and international (Farm, Lenny Nieymeyer, Frescobol and Osklen clothing from Brazil; Laboratorio Olfattivo perfumes from Italy; Granado skincare products from Brazil: Clasu perfumes from Portugal: Kaleos sunglasses from ‘Spain).
The authentic architectural environment of the shops has always played an essential role in the Just Brasil concept.
This is why Renata always chooses large buildings steeped in history for her stores. Their decoration reflects the tastes of a great traveler: in Europe, Asia or South America.
This is how we find hammocks from Tulum, frames from Vienna and headdresses from Indian chiefs from Brazil.
