It is an exciting time for us as we see the launch of the Almond Blossom Collection which we have been preparing for months. A little bit nervous and very excited, we bring you a collection of handbags, jewellery, pearls and perfume inspired by the beautiful flower which covers the island in early spring. What makes the collection unique is how you can create your own style by selecting your colour combinations and favourite pieces – find out more on page 66.
There were forecasts of a recurrence of ‘the summer that never was’ and during the wet days of May and June we were really starting to believe that the experiences of 1816 could be repeated. But alas there are no worries – the temperatures are rising and we look set for an active summer ahead. Check out the upcoming events on page 32.
This edition is packed with lots of interesting information as always: see our best beach guide on page 106; we review Michelin-starred Es Molí d’en Bou on page 52 and we meet the eccentric Spanish fashion designer Agatha Ruiz de la Prada on page 60.
We present a nautical-inspired fashion shoot on a luxury yacht close to the chic harbour of Puerto Portals . . . and an interview with Kai Dost – the owner of one of the fastest-growing real estate agencies on the island (page 88).
So there is no time to waste, get down to the beach and let’s enjoy Summer!
