Clothes for people who feel different, daring and wanna life a live full of experiences. So is the new collection by ibizan designer Raven Carbajo .”The Escape” was presented last Saturday June 22 at the Hotel Santos. The fashion show was held during the opening of the Flamingo Party, inspired in the Miami of the 80s. We were talking with Raven about fashion, trends and his secret places in Ibiza.
What inspired you when creating this collection? As the concept was freedom and escape, this year I made a deep dive into American Indians. I have found things that remember me to Ibiza, wich is the perfect place to create. I was inspired by my dreams, my surroundings, music festivals as Burning Men, The Route 66 and especially by my island, Ibiza.
Do you follow the trends? Inevitably you need to be trendy, but I like to find my own way. My collections are done for the island lifestyle, who is always trendy. That’s Ravens View, a perfect symbiosis between trend and style.
Whats new this year? For me every collection is unique. We try to work with patterns and hight quality fabrics. Also with colors and printing techniques. Each year we try to go a little further.
This year we made a collection for guys who want to feel comfortable, but also beautiful and sexy. And the same for women: beautiful, bold and with a great attitude, that would be Ravens View girl.
We have worked with some very special dyes and we got beautiful colors: violet and pink ara a must have in our new collection.
Where can we purchase your t-shirts? We are selling them in Spain, Denmark, Germany and soon in Holland. You can also purchase them on our webshop and other online retail stores.
A beach: Punta Galera in June and September is a magical place, but this it is a secret so ssshhh! Salinas before it reaches the stampede of tourists is also a good place.
A sunset: From Pirate Tower in Cala D’Hort or from the terrace of a house, in the field. The setting is fantastic in every season, we are very lucky to life on the island.
A restaurant: Sa Cornucopia for a romantic dinner. Its summer terrace is the best spot in Santa Gertrudis. Also Yemanja in Cala Jondal for lunch: You know when it starts but you never know how long are you gonna be on the table. Ideal to share with friends or family: the beach, the sun, the sand, the foot and the cava sangria, what else you need?
Shopping at: uufff … There are many good shops on the island, I cannot choose one! I also buy on the internet.
Going out: A good gin and tonic, served cold and in a special glass. And Pereyra is the best place for this!
