Time To Shine

Super shiny metallics is a trend that always remains from season to season and is definitely one of our fashion favourites – especially with Christmas approaching! Whether it’s clothing, glistening gold tattoos, styling details or fabrics… we LOVE this trend and we know you do too!

Our metallic collection has been hugely inspired by our love for Ibiza and its legendary party scene, glamorous beach bars and beautiful sunsets.

Day or night, we know a high shine metallic piece will add instant Balearic glam to any outfit this festive season. Whether it’s our metallic iridescent or our super shiny gold, our sandals are the perfect alternative to crippling high heels this Christmas and New Years Eve!

SS16 Press Day

Although Spring/Summer 2016 seems so far away, for the fashion industry, preparation for next year’s magazines, photo shoots and blog posts are well underway. Our wonderful press team held an event in their London showroom to present our brand new styles, which was an absolute success!

The event took place on 18th November at the B Teams Head Office, welcoming more than 200 guests throughout the day. Set designer Yasmin Kurunis transformed the showroom into a chic inspired Moroccan haven, with cascading plants and pops of bright orange and blue.

The Frugality’s Guide to Ibiza

The wonderful Alex Stedman has just got back from the white isle we called home – Ibiza. AND we are over the moon that she had an amazing time and now knows the beautiful island is far more than mega clubs and beach bars but has a side to it that embraces a unique hippie culture with incredible scenery, amazing restaurants and lots of little hidden gems that are truly special.

If you want to find out more on the local offerings, insider places to visit and some delicious food recommendations from The Frugality herself, then carry on reading…

Firstly, the beaches in Ibiza are like nowhere else in the world. From sunsets at Benniras and Las Salinas to the soft, white sand at Es Cavallet and Cala Pada, each beach is very beautiful in their own, unique way.

 

Where to eat?

The Fish Shack, Talamanca.

This hidden gem on the island is the perfect little place to relax over lunch. Made up of beach chairs and located on the rocks by the sea where you can sit and watch the waves crashing against the coast. Offering no menu you sit and await their fish of the day. Not only is this exciting but it’s probably the best and freshest fish you’ll ever try – helped by the delicious Ibiza salt of course.

La Bodega, Ibiza Old Town

Located in the heart of the city, with beautiful views of the castle and pretty terrace, you can’t visit Ibiza without having classic Tapas from La Bodega. What used to be an ancient Ibicenco storehouse and a stable has now been transformed into a cozy restaurant and sparkling cocktail bar. Alex suggests the delicious Padron Peppers and Patatas Bravas – YUM!

Bar Anita

Up the road from Las Dalias, Bar Anita is known for being favoured by the resident hippies and artists in the 70s. Packed with great atmosphere no matter what time of day, serving great seafood, delicious pizzas and the best ailoli you will ever taste…

Sluiz

On the outskirts of Santa Gertrudis there’s a very special shop called Sluiz. It’s filled with bits and bobs from clothes, accessories, home décor and furniture as well as it’s own café and restaurant. This unique hub of kooky, humorous yet utterly tasteful products is definitely worth a visit! The only problem will have when going to Sluiz is your baggage allowance for your journey home! 

Las Dalias

Ibiza’s most traditional hippie market will not disappoint you. Lots of stalls, locally made clothing and accessories along with some delicious juice bars and food stalls – a great place to collect a few really authentic, beautiful pieces to take home and cherish.

 

Dalt Vila

A trip to Dalt Vila in Ibiza Old town is an absolute must! The fortress is full of buzz, friendly locals with beautiful views over the cities.

Relax…

Ibiza is known for its beautiful spas, retreats and locations for relaxation – who wouldn’t love this! It’s all about finding the perfect poolside with comfy sun loungers, Balearic beats and of course, a bar! Alex recommends: Sensatori Resort in Cala Tarida and ‘The Retreat’ spa.

Keep posted for further recommendations on Ibiza as there are so many places we want to share with you!

With love,

Solillas

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ibiza Rocks House

Since Ibiza Rocks took over the iconic institution of Pikes, this hotel has been transformed into a legendary boutique sanctuary and home to free-spirited Ibizan lovers. It is a true authentic, unique, creative hub of entertainment that shines with spiritual Ibizan personality.

Famous for providing the set to Wham’s Club Tropicana video, Pikes was the hotel choice for the rock n’ roll elite of the 80’s and still has this reputation today. Staying real to the relaxed yet fun island lifestyle and being the heart of Ibizan music heritage and hedonism, Pikes is a true hidden treasure on the island which creates a hugely inspiring, authentic, carefree, Balearic vibe.

pool296502_AT_THE_ibiza_rocks_house_at_pikes_hotel

With Solillas being born to share our passion for these magical Balearic Islands, there is no doubt that we share the same bohemian lifestyle as Pikes. From here, a petrol green iridescent Solillas was designed in collaboration with Ibiza Rocks founder and creative director Dawn Hindle.

SOLILLAS-IBIZA-ROCKS-HOUSE-PIKES

Not only is this limited edition Solillas a part of staff uniform at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes, yet it is available to buy in Ibiza Rocks House boutiques, on our website and in store at BOXPARK.
