Minoan inspiration sometimes creeps into the fashion world in unusual ways, as seen in this image below. I have no idea where a woman would wear this outfit, though.

An image featuring two gentlemen in reproduction Mycenaean armor.  You can buy the armor and helmets here, though the weapons and clothing are not for sale.

Mycenaean war gear was not uniform, and basically consisted of whatever the wearer could afford or scavenge.  High-class warriors, such as Achilles, would have put on a gaudy show to impress and intimidate both friend and foe.
