Ibiza style: The king of Ibiza vintage
Fashion and music partner perfectly in Ibiza, and certain lucky individuals are able to combine their passions seamlessly into their working life too. Ibiza’s very own king of vintage Diego Calvo doesn’t merely love it – he truly lives it, having created a retro-themed world around weekly Rock Nights parties at Ibiza Rocks House at Pikes Hotel, and within his two kitsch Playa D’en Bossa hotels, Santos Ibiza Coast Suites and Tropicana Ibiza Coast Suites.
And then he gets to zip home in his mint condition 1966 Ford Mustang red convertible (which he personally sourced and imported to Ibiza) to his stunning Ibiza vintage queen and wife, the well-known stylist Leyla Art and their gorgeous retro-styled daughters.
“After the grunge era of the 90s I started to get into vintage clothing and all things retro, like classic American cars, 80s films and retro furniture,” explains Diego, of his fascination with things from eras gone by. With a notable passion for Hawaiian and Western shirts (“In summer I wear the Hawaiian and in winter the Western.”), Diego’s collection is nearing the 100 mark and he plans to hold a vintage exhibition when he finally reaches that magic number.
