Adlib Ibiza means quality, design and elegance. After more than fifty successful years, Ibiza’s iconic fashion brand has become synonymous with good work thanks to the tireless work of the group of creators that come together under this brand. Designers who have added to their collections and whose creations with support from the Consell d’Eivissa, have dazzled on international red carpets and whose unmistakable character has made them unique objects of desire on the bridal scene.
Fourteen designers and their firms work under the Adlib Ibiza brand umbrella, all creators with a unique style. Dolors Miró Ibiza, Elisa Pomar, Espardenyes Torres, Estrivancus, Ibimoda, Ibiza Stones, Ivanna Mestres, K de Kose Kose, Monika Maxim Ibiza, Piluca Bayarri, Tony Bonet, S72 Hat, Vintage Ibiza, Virginia Vald.
Individual and their own personalities and quirks, they succeed in capturing the mood and philosophy of Adlib Ibiza that means wearing whatever you like, but with taste, in line with contemporary fashion trends, and always with craftsmanship as its hallmark.
Versatile, wearable, elegant collections that reflect the trend to dress in white and which mix textures, shapes and silhouettes to create a quintessential Mediterranean style with materials like cotton, crochet, lace and 100% handmade in Ibiza.
A perfect fit for a new textile revolution committed to sustainable fashion, with garments and accessories made by hand, part of a movement to preserve and value Ibiza’s age-old artisan tradition. Hand crafted products, fabrics, superb quality materials and exclusive designs abound in the work of this group of designers with their own ateliers on the island.
Their accessories are equally identified with the island: jewellery, espadrilles, straw hats and woven bags are the pure essence of the White Island's traditions and culture, all made by hand.
Adlib Ibiza makes fashion with heart and soul, manufactured entirely in Eivissa using hand crafted processes to create exclusive products. The work of expert hands is evident in all their designs whose freshness, personality and uniqueness have made them global fashion icons.
Yugoslavian “princess” Smilja Mihailovitch was instrumental as the nascent style’s global ambassador. In Ibiza, Smilja found the spirit of a free woman, whose beauty was not only natural but also fresh and authentic, lighting the way for Earth-minded designers from Ibiza and across Europe as they moved toward more lightweight, white and hand-embroidered pieces whose cuts allowed enough movement to showcase the female form.

In 1971, the first Ibiza Fashion Week was the backdrop against which droves of recently-arrived hippies, channeling the inherent delicacy of naturally coarse artisan materials, went wild for traditional island wear. The multiculturalism of an island that teemed with artists and globetrotting visitors filtered into homegrown fashion and traditional island apparel, the latter becoming ever lighter and shapeshifting to absorb newly emerging trends…eventually creating a space for Moda Adlib. The name was coined by one of the firm’s original architects, José Colomar, the hitherto next-in-command of Ibiza’s tourism promotor, Fomento del Turismo. Backed by the local chamber of commerce, the group helped support and consolidate a brand name borne of the Latin adage “ad libitum,” meaning “freely”.
