Our new Resort Collection speaks to a certain state of mind: one of freedom, of leisure, and most importantly one of effortless style. So who better to debut the range than the divine Vanessa Breuer and her lovely family, at home in Ibiza.

So, why did you decide to relocate to Ibiza?
“At first we only wanted to stay for a year. We had our first daughter in Australia and decided to sell my apartment in New York and use the money to have a real break from work, travel and just be with our baby. It was a fantastic year but it was over quickly and we felt like staying another year. After that I was pregnant again, and we are still on the island now! It’s a beautiful spot for children to grow up.”
And what is it that you love most about island life?
“Everything is slower on an island. At first we had to get used to it. It would drive me mad that you can’t run in anywhere‚ quickly to get something. People are in no rush, they take their time but now I really appreciate the slower life. I also feel safe on the island with my children. And where I live it is quiet and peaceful. I need that to balance my crazy work life.”
If vacation is a state of mind, what does it mean to you?
“Harmony and quietness.”
How would you describe your ideal vacation?
“The perfect blend of culture, fun and relaxation. I love exploring new places, eating different foods and immersing myself into a different history. Just lying on the beach isn’t my kind of thing I get terribly bored. I love exploring cities like Berlin that have so much to offer. ”
What is one of the most treasured holiday memories with your family?
“Spending time with Oddy’s family in Australia when his mother was very ill. It was a difficult time for all of us but I am so glad we took the time with her. It’s not a typical holiday memory but it’s one that will stay with us forever.”
How do you approach dressing for vacation?
“I am all about comfort. I take clothes that don’t need to be ironed and that are easy to wear. I love loose-fit dresses that I can dress up with some jewellery. ”
