Three fash­ion in­sid­ers re­veal what they take on a trip away

Red - - Contents -



I’m based be­tween Madrid and Va­len­cia, and from here it’s a short flight to Ibiza, so we tend to go sev­eral times a year. It’s a spe­cial place for me – I met my hus­band there five years ago and it’s also where I was when the in­spi­ra­tion for Goya san­dals struck. We al­ways head out to For­mentera, too – it’s the qui­eter of the two is­lands and has the most in­cred­i­ble blue wa­ter. In fact, we spend as much time in or on the wa­ter as pos­si­ble, so my hol­i­day look is all about swimwear with just a few light lay­ers on top. Dur­ing the day, I’ll wear a colourful bikini (I love Lisa Marie Fer­nan­dez or Solid & Striped) with a neu­tral-toned vin­tage cot­ton or denim shirt, del­i­cate gold jew­ellery and a sarong tied to one side. I’ve got some great silky sarongs in graphic prints from Bimba Y Lola. Af­ter I swim, I like to rinse out my hair and ap­ply some Kiehl’s Dam­age Re­pair­ing Leave-in Treat­ment and, of course, I use plenty of SPF – ei­ther Lan­caster or Piz Buin. I’ll carry ev­ery­thing I need in a bas­ket bag, which I pick up from one of the shops around For­mentera port. For evening, I’ll change into a swim­suit, which some­how feels more glam, with a long linen skirt – my favourite is by Jac­que­mus – and ei­ther my own Goya san­dals or some strappy heels from Mango. Then I’ll have fun with big ear­rings and ban­gles.
