Sometimes, when you go on a trip you want to buy souvenirs for your friends but you want them to be useful. Continuing with the particular style of Ibiza’s fashion, known as Adlib, one of its jewels is undoubtedly their footwear. These kind of shoes, named espardenya, are used in many places in Spain but there is a strong tradition of craftsmen working on it here.
The sole, made of hemp, is coated with colored fabrics to form thousands of combinations. The espardenya exists either as a flat or like wedge heeled shoes. Adlib or Ibiza style is built with comfort and this shoe is the perfect match for a total look.
White is the colour of this fashion style along with natural, light fabrics, embroidery, crochet, flounces and traditional lacework. All these elements complement the clothes, giving them volume which is in harmony with the body’s natural movement. A few weeks ago Ibiza celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Adlib fashion show , where the island’s designers had the opportunity to show their collections.
There are many magazines that fall in love each summer with the sensuality of Adlib fashion. This term comes from the Latin “ad libitum” meaning “at pleasure” and the seal of this particular dress code is the phrase “dress as you please but with style.” This maximum is present in every street of Ibiza, in every town and all its beaches.
