Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza

«(The Loewe woman) is bohemian at heart – she’s very controlled but she knows when to let go.» – Jonathan W. Anderson

I have seen the beautiful collaboration between LOEWE and Paula’s Ibiza before as it is exclusively available online at MATCHESFASHION, but once I visited the Ibiza summer shop that features all those airy, dreamlike pieces, I was fully drawn to them. I admit, fashion, I am your slave…

IBIZA SUMMER SHOP

Pop-up shop at Ibiza’s MACE – Museum of Contemporary Art.

Coinciding with the Guerlain collection exhibition, LOEWE will present vintage pieces from the Paula’s Archive; the island’s original cult fashion destination, whose prints feature in this summer’s collaboration.

From the 30th June until the 30th August

Museu d’Art Contemporani Ronda Narcis Putget s/n Dalt Vila
971300758

Opening times:
Tuesday to Saturday 10:00-14:00 | 18:00-22:00
Sunday 10:00-14:00
Closed on Monday

So let me explain you a little further what LOEWE’s special collaboration is all about. Paula’s Ibiza is the iconic boutique and cultural phenomenon of the 1980s and 90s whose indelible legacy lives on through the dedicated work and unbound artistry of its founders.

The new collaboration was conceived by LOEWE creative director Jonathan W. Anderson, who first encountered Paula’s on childhood trips to the Balearic island. Exclusively for the special S/S 2017 line, Armin Heinemann, Paula’s German-born co-founder, provided a selection of original prints from the archive as well as garment designs adapted from Paula’s best-selling pieces. LOEWE‘s ateliers translated these elements into a timely womenswear capsule, combining the essential qualities behind Paula’s success of ”harmony, exuberance and freedom” with LOEWE‘s own core values such as ”functionality, modernity, and superior craftsmanship.

My Look: Ibiza

Greetings from Ibiza! I was so happy to sport my new book clutch I got at the Eden Being Cabana Pop-up Boutique for the first time on the Spanish island. Wearing new pieces always feels great, doesn’t it? Time to shop, ladies!

My look: Polka-dot cotton dress by Dolce & Gabbana, Betty bow-embellished suede platform sandals by Saint Laurent, embroidered book clutch by Olympia Le Tan for Cabana x Eden Being, pearl embellished sunglasses and earrings, both by Chanel and golden cuff by Stella McCartney.

The straw hat «Be Bagatelle» is a gift from Bistro Bagatelle, one of my favorite places around the world when it comes to partying, great food and fun with family and friends. They have just opened their spot in Ibiza and it is absolutely worth going there!

Childhood friends Barbara Boccara and Sharon Krief have always shared a passion for fashion and travels. In 2003, they started to implement their vision into developing their own brand: Ba&Sh (the letters of their first names).
