From the outrageous styles seen on the dance-floors of the famous nightclubs, to the boho style of the hippies who arrived in the 70’s and never left, Ibiza is alive with a riot of colourful fashion styles, and larger than life characters. So it’s not surprising that when it comes to fashion shopping, there is a wealth of stores to choose from. However, the emphasis is usually on the ladies, so we decided to check out the options for the guys amongst you. Here is our guide to the best menswear outlets on the White Isle.
The upmarket marina has evolved in recent years to be one of the coolest spots on the island to hang out, have a long lazy lunch, and of course, shop! Clan Ibiza can be found amongst the many high end boutiques, and stocks a wide range of men’s clothing, accessories, shoes and jewellery. Here you will find designers such as Danielle Alessandrini, Scotch and Soda and Jott, to name but a few. Further along the port, Arias has an eclectic selection of designer wear, jackets and beautifully tailored shirts for the discerning customer.
If your budget doesn’t run to designer labels, then head into the heart of Ibiza Town, where many of the larger stores have opened up outlets. From Zara and Mango to Berksha, Pull and Bear, and Jack Jones, there are clothes, shoes and accessories to suit all styles and budgets on the tree lined streets. Or if its cutting edge fashion that gets your pulse racing, head to reVOLVER, the cult store on Carrer del Bisbe Azara, where you will find a huge selection of leading brands, such as Comme des Garcons, Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen, enough to satisfy the most demanding of male shoppers!
Over in Santa Eulalia – the cool cats head to La Santa – where the fabulous range of state of the art skateboards is complemented by a funky range of contemporary street wear. From hoodies by Manifesto, colourful belts from Armondillo and the funkiest footwear around from brands such as Supra and Fallen mean you will definately be the coolest kid on the block. On the main street – Distel offers a more upmarket range, stocking designers such as Lacoste, Polo by Ralph Lauren, Slam and Mirto.
So, whatever, your style, taste or budget, Ibiza is, quite simply, a male shopper’s paradise.
