In fashion terms, summer doesn’t truly begin until
Borrowing its name from Paula’s, a now-shuttered boutique responsible for the island’s bohemian way of dressing, the collection is a carefree collision of vivid colour, eccentric prints, abbreviated hemlines and party-primed silhouettes. On the agenda this time around is sequin-laden dresses, over-dyed denim separates, sharable tops and easy-breezy shorts plastered in surfer graphics and cactus motifs. These are joined by a hand-crocheted rainbow crop top and a crushed velvet slip dress with seashells sprinkled along the hem – because, if you’re by the sea, you may as well dress the part.
For the accessories, Anderson has beach-readied a series Loewe classics, including the Puzzle and Amazona – whether they’re built from woven straw and raffia, or dazzle in ombré gradients akin to that of a cocktail. Sex on the beach, anyone?
When it comes to tantalising the senses, though, a freshly concocted Loewe scent does the trick. The second scent in the Loewe Paula’s Ibiza collection, Eclectic is a woody, floral and gourmand Eau de Toilette that blends Madagascan mandarin, black pepper and jasmine sambac – bottled in a ombré-shaded glass cylinder. So, what’s stopping you? Throw on your new kit, have a few sprays and let loose – a night of mischief awaits.
