Adlib Ibiza presents ICONIC SS22, a selection of the most iconic proposals from the brand's 15 designers. Handcrafted garments, classics that have become true Adlib fashion icons, to be enjoyed at any time and inspired by a casual chic style, brimming with creativity and fresh looks. A way to connect "today" with "yesterday" through garments crafted in cotton and lace, paying tribute to this fashion label with designation of origin status, launched in 1971.
The ICONIC SS22 collection brings us designs that have become iconic cultural and historical references in Ibiza, reflecting the creative aesthetics and history of each of its creators over the years. In addition, each piece has its own identity and details inspired by the island, its people, its colours, and its light. In the ICONIC SS22 line, quality is blended with versatility and elegance to breathe life into a unique collection that is perfect for every woman. A collection that is spellbound by the colour white and defined by its beautiful combination of different textures, shapes, and silhouettes so characteristic of this exclusive brand from Ibiza, encapsulating the purest Mediterranean style.
Flowing sheer dresses -mini, midi and maxi - and outfits with a variety of sleeves, necklines, asymmetries, and overlays create new shapes and forms in ICONIC, while the accessories embody the essence of craftsmanship and Ibizan tradition through jewellery, “espardenyes” (espadrilles), “senallons” (straw bags), fascinators and hats such as the capell, where the soul of Adlib Ibiza encapsulates freshness and innocence, as well as the philosophy of "dress however you want, but with style".

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”.
