This week we caught up with two of the islands hottest fashion and jewellery designers to see what inspires them, find out what they have in store for us in 2014 and discover where to get our hands on their unique Ibizan creations!
Coco Riko by Hayley Weatley
A luxury, high-end and beautiful brand with an edge which encapsulates the fun and frivolity of Ibiza as well as its appreciation of style and quality. This brand focuses on key beach and loungewear shapes in a mixture of stunning prints and beautiful brights which are combined together using 100% silk to create the essential Ibiza statement. What makes Coco Riko more special is that each piece is designed and hand-made here on the Island. Designer and creator Hayley Weatley is incredibly excited about her collection for Spring and Summer 2014, and finds inspiration for her creations all over the island. She draws ideas from the beautiful countryside, the graphitised walls, the little old churches, the bustling markets, the orange trees, the resident hippies, the vibrant street parades and most of all, from her favourite past-time, ‘people-watching’! This eclectic and diverse range of inspiration has resulted in a lively 2014 collection with statement print, animal print and bright florals finished with neon pink fringing across a selection of kaftans, maxi dresses and kimonos. It’s the ‘I have to have it!’ collection!
