Shopping Ibiza Style

I realised two things about shopping in Ibiza this summer. Number  1 – Brazilian bottom bikinis were big news. I really wanted to buy one. FYI it is like a half thong bikini – so a bit revealing but not a thong. And number 2 the best place to shop is at the beach, where you can find super cool boutiques which sell the most beautiful clothes and accessories.

I was so excited to discover Dune Boutique at Es Cavallet beach on the south side of the island. The shop is part of the  El Chiringuito Beach House. I really wanted to buy everything but settled for a beautiful blue scarf, which I have worn nearly every day back in London.

Peachy and beachy = perfect.

The Hester Concept Store, New York

The great thing about New York is you never have to go far to find something new, exciting and cool. And this time it was literally under my nose ( or a few blocks away). The Hester is a very cool retail concept store that has just opened at 29th street and 6th avenue under the Eventi Hotel.

The Hester

The Hester has been created by the crew from the Hester Street Fair, the super cool Lower East side market that runs every Saturday on the corner of Essex and Hester. If you have never been – the fair sells incredible food, fashion, interiors and gifts. It’s a must visit.

The Hester

The Hester retail store has some beautiful pieces from a number of innovative New York designers with new stock arriving all the time. I loved these soft beach pieces by Basta – perfect for lounging around in style.

Plus every Thursday this summer they are hosting Hester Nights in the courtyard behind  the Eventi Hotel. A chance for us all to sample the delicious food from the Hester Street Fair sellers. It’s creating quite a buzz. More to follow on Friday!
