IBIZA, AN ISLAND TO DISCOVER AND FEEL.
How did you discover Ibiza?
I first went to Ibiza for work. I went to an Adlib fashion show and flew to the marvellous island of Ibiza for the weekend. And it was a revelation. I remember feeling I had found a true paradise in Europe.
What does Ibiza mean to you?
It means switching off, relaxing and finding myself.
What does the island transmit to you?
Peace, fun and happiness.
What are your favourite things to do in Ibiza?
In summer, I like going in the opposite direction to people. In other words, everyone goes to the sea, so I stay at home, and when most people are out partying, I go to the sea. I love going out sailing after five o'clock, sleeping at sea and coming back at noon or one o’clock in the afternoon.
Which song makes you think of Ibiza, and why?
There isn’t a particular song that makes me think of Ibiza, but I tend to listen to chill-out and relaxing music there. That’s really the style that suits my mood when I’m on the island.
A special memory of Ibiza?
My most special memory of Ibiza was finding it for the first time when I went in the nineties. I can't forget that what struck me most was the freedom with which people moved around, that characteristic hippie style. I was fascinated with the way people dressed there. In Ibiza, people dress in a way that you couldn't dress anywhere else. I had my Ibiza wardrobe which was not the same as the clothes I wore in Madrid. People don't dress like that anymore, but I thought it was marvellous. Wearing flats, flip-flops. I was hooked on the hippie style of Adlib fashion. Fed up with high heels, with catwalks, with makeup, Ibiza was the epitome of freedom and relaxation for me.
What do you tell your friends about Ibiza?
Maybe people who don't know Ibiza very well think of it as a party island, with nightclubs and after hours... A world of non-stop drinking, partying and late nights. Although that exists, Ibiza is much more than that. And that’s one thing I like to stress when I talk about the island, that Ibiza has it all. For example, when I’m there I rarely go out partying. I might go out once or twice, but the rest of the two or three months I spend there (or however long) in summer, I live a far quieter life: making dinner at home, day trips, enjoying the sea and nature, exploring coves and less-known, less crowded places. That’s the face of Ibiza I prefer and which I really hope will be conserved for many years.
