Ibiza living: Sal de Ibiza ‘The Store’ – Island-inspired emporium
There is no denying it: The white isle knows a thing or two about fashion. From hippy chic to boho luxe, the world looks to Ibiza for style inspiration. With two flagship showrooms – on the main roads to Santa Eulalia and San Jose – Sal de Ibiza ‘The Store’ showcases Balearic-inspired fashion, swim and beachwear. Catering for women, men and children alike, the bright and airy space is a one stop shop for top-to-toe Ibiza style.
All island holiday must-haves can be snapped up en route to Ibiza’s best beaches – think environmentally friendly baskets that mean you can avoid plastics when shopping or stash your beach essentials, classic espadrilles perfect for strolling the cobbled streets of the old town (or opt for fringed, wedge heel versions for a night out), beach sarongs, hats and eye-catching jewellery. Sal de Ibiza ‘The Store’ boasts rail upon rail of Ibiza-inspired fashion, from flowing maxi-dresses, pom-pom embellished kaftans, sheer beach cover-ups, chic and sophisticated tunics, sassy party frocks and versatile swimsuits. And that’s just for starters…
Star collections include lovingly designed hats, caps and baskets made from felt, wool, cotton and leather by Marta Anastasia, a designer hailing from Ibiza’s sister island, Formentera. For kids and bubs, A Peace of Ibiza have created cool children’s collections ranging from tees to onesies – amazing souvenirs for little ones back home – plus hoodies for grown-ups. Formentera brand Dossae also have men covered, via a rainbow of stylish cotton shirts and quick-dry swim shorts.
Ibiza’s famous Ad Lib fashion movement is represented within Sal de Ibiza ‘The Store’. Translating to ‘unrestrained’ and ‘freedom’, Ad Lib is closely linked to the island’s traditional dress styles yet with a modern twist. Think all-white, long flowing dresses, skirts and off-the-shoulder tops. With almost an entire wall within the store dedicated to the movement, it’s easy to embrace the trend and slip right into the authentic island style. Just add a flower to your hair and you’re almost ready to Flamenco!
The finishing touches come via hippy-esque handbags and purses, embellished with tassels, colourful trim and sparkling metallic detailing. Gorgeous boho-inspired chunky necklaces and long mala-style beads can be offset by the delicate friendship bracelets by Island Bracelets.
Whether you’re looking for the perfect ensemble for the beach, a luxurious lunch, decadent dinner or a party, Sal de Ibiza ‘The Store’ has got you covered – literally! Both stores are open daily from 10am until 2pm, and again from 5pm until 9pm – but be advised, this ultimate walk-in Ibiza wardrobe is so chock-full of style, you’ll want to allow plenty of time to shop!
