When Ibiza is mentioned, the last thing we’d think of is a tranquil beach free of noisy revellers and glow sticks. But before Daisy Dukes and wild ravers ruled Ibiza, it was once a sleepy Balearic Island, a dreamy destination for well-heeled hippies and boho musicians. Picture this: The summer sun is high up, the balmy air is just about right, and the salty ocean breeze seeps into every corner of the city. You plan to visit the town’s historical precincts, and then maybe you’ll lounge in that hammock you spotted by the beach. A book you’ve been dying to finish is in hand — but what do you wear?
Cue Chloé and Net-a-Porter’s fifth exclusive collection. Drawing inspiration from the halcyon Ibiza days, Chloé’s 26-piece capsule is the sartorial embodiment of the isle’s once-upon-a-time ‘70s spirit. The French fashion house’s signature bohemian silhouettes are now all beach-ready with floral maxis, flowy shirts and fringe-detailed pants making up the ready-to-wear range. Its cult accessories like the Drew handbag and suede ribbon-tie sandals get the feel-good update, too.
“This capsule perfectly exemplifies Chloé’s feminine cool aesthetic and is our biggest and best yet,” says Holly Russell, Net-a-Porter’s senior buyer who highlighted the floral maxi and patchwork Drew bag as her must-haves. And we couldn’t agree more. Given that the complete collection is currently up for grabs, Chloé girls the world over can head over here to pick out their favourite holiday-worthy get-ups, too.
Adding to your fun in the sun is Jet-a-Porter, Net-a-Porter’s newly minted vacation shop featuring a vast option of leisurewear, swimwear and accessories. And if beachy respites aren’t scheduled up ahead, Jet-a-Porter’s City Break and Sundown edits curate the season’s best picks to freshen up your urban wardrobe selections. This can only mean one thing: It’s time to break our piggybanks.
