• Sartorial Saviour


    Hooray for reVOLVER, Ibiza's bang-on-trend clothing boutique and THE saving grace for girls like moi, for sorting out all our winter clothing dilemmas and launching a website.



    reVOLVER is the only store in Ibiza which stocks the cooler end of the niche labels (SuperFine, Twenty8Twelve, Sass & Bide) alongside some serious diffusion lines (Anglomania for girls AND boys) and the most brilliantly edited accessories collection in the Balearics (Zara Simon gold finery, a neat selection of Comme des Garcons wallets, Daisy Chakra Bracelets and Lily & Lionel's deluxe oversized silk scarves).




    The shop stays open over the winter months, although they're no doubt exhausted after spending the long hot summer days catering to the sartorial whims of superstar DJs, visiting royalty, sunkissed supermodels and (I imagine) a whole bunch of sun-seekers who've stayed longer than they thought and needed some quick-fix wardrobe hits. The online site really serves as an added extra to those who can't bear to lose their Ibiza Town fix over the winter, or for those who never managed to make it out the White Isle at all in the summer (no excuses!)




    The website campaign was shot in the summer by the lovely Marco Walker, and features Chandra Teixera and myself generally running around town, languishing on the beach and dancing in the back of a Jeep. Standard.


    Have a peep. I bet you buy something x


  • Closing Time


    When two of Ibiza's beach institutions close within a week of each other, you know there'll be some bleary-eyed locals hiding behind their Linda Farrow Vintage frames over the next few days.


    Cala Jondal hotspot and all-round glam-squad station the Blue Marlin pulled out all the stops for its closing party last weekend, with Balearic glitterati, London power players and a serious dose of Hollywood glamour in the form of a certain Miss P. Hilton all jostling for pole position on the jumping dancefloor.



    The Blue Marlin has seen one of its most successful summers to date, with a packed schedule of events and some seriously high-end joint ventures (Moet, JamBox). Just when you thought it couldn't get any more on-point, they threw deep house legend and all-round dancefloor hero Kerri Chandler into the mix to add a heavy dose of cool to the closing party - an utterly inspired choice.




    Blue skies, bright sun, deep grooves and some of the world's hottest young things - another top score for The Marl and a fitting end to an epic season.


    One week later and a few beaches away, Es Cavallet institution El Chiringuito played host to Ibiza's finest on Saturday with Groove Armada headlining a closing party that was literally on the next level.


    Masterminded by the power couple behind El Chiringuito, Jonathan Thorogood & Olivia Fleury, and executed by Ibiza party-producers extraordinaire, The Shop, Chiri's last hoorah was a closing party with a difference - all the proceeds went to charity.



    Groove Armada's Andy Cato is a staunch supporter (and former member) of the Yorkshire-based 'free music lessons for kids' initiative, The Doncaster Jazz Association.  When the charity lost its government funding, the Groove Armada boys took it upon themselves to help out.  Cue the mega-party in cahoots with El Chiringuito and The Shop, where every penny of the proceeds from the 400-strong lunch was donated to the cause.  The guestlist read like a Who's Who of Ibiza - Bambuddha's John Moon, 365 Production's George Scarbrough & Will Penn (below), Blue Marlin head honcho Jelle and all the Pacha peeps.



    Lunch was languid, delicious and dreamy, but the moment the sun set and the dancefloor kicked off it was a different story - wild abandon was the order of the day and judging by the number of yummy mummies there sans les petites, it was also pretty clear that Saturday was a profitable day to be a babysitter in Ibiza.


    Two brilliant goodbyes in the space of a week.  Hasta la proxima - we'll miss you guys x


  • Amazing Orlebar


    Never one to miss a fashion trick, when my friend Adam Brown of super-luxe swimwear brand Orlebar Brown invited me on his Ibiza ad campaign shoot, I was there in a flash.



    Orlebar Brown are the sleek 'n' chic beach uniform beloved of stylish boys the world over, and especially the West London social set in Ibiza (Poppy D's squeeze James Cook, Love Brunch's Tom Carr and Daisy's James Boyd, to name a few).


    We hit Es Cavallet for a super-early beach start and spent a delightful few hours messing around in the surf with inflatables and generally having the kind of fun that is surely ONLY had on Ibiza fashion shoots. This was followed by a mad dash up to the hills after lunch to a lush villa overlooking Salinas, where the beautiful boys and girls draped themselves languidly over Balinese furniture and generally lived it up as Julian Broad snapped away happily in the sun.



    Oh well, all in a day's work!
