Neon Flash hits Ibiza

Saddlebag Trading have just returned from a fantastic break in Ibiza, where who should accompany us but the Uber on trend Neon Flash! With Ibiza’s party credentials and super cool fashion pack residents we knew this little bag would be the perfect accessory.

ibiza2Whether you’re heading to the beach in a cool kaftan, a hip beach bar to watch the sunset, out for tapas in Ibiza old town in a floaty maxi, or off to Pacha in high waisted cut offs and converse to dance into the early hours this bag is the perfect little number for all occasions.

ibiza4Favourite beaches include the stunning Cala Bassa with its fantastic restaurant, chill out music and massages from lovely therapists, really making you feel totally relaxed and glamourous.

ibiza3The tapas at La Bodega in Ibizas gorgeous old town at the foot of the wall of the castle is the perfect place to watch the hip crowds pass by. Book early though as it gets busy quickly and tables outside are hard to come by.

ibiza5My last Ibizan gem is the restaurant garden terrace La Brasa. Hidden behind a beautiful old facade is this stunningly romantic hideaway dining experience, with views of the magnificent Unesco heritage castle all around.

Art and Colour Inspiration

I thought I would share with you one of our many colour inspiration sources. Coming from a screen print background I am a huge fan of Bridget Riley’s graphic geometric works (although her’s are mind bendingly painted by hand and eye). To see these in their full size is to get sucked into their mind blowing vortex of colour combinations/ratios. Art and fashion often go hand in hand, but what makes arts use of colour exciting is that it has no boundaries and is totally subjective. What fashion can take from this is endless.

What we try and visualise here is how do different ratios of colour work with each other. Colour evokes many feeling and emotions, and putting together combinations of colour adds a depth of suprise for the audience.
