Star Ibiza, the comfortable and chic clothing line from Mallorca’s Balearic neighbour, has opened a new shop but crossing the water has clearly led to a small name change: the shop is called Star Palma.
Star Palma, a Mallorca branch of the much-loved Star Ibiza stores, opened in March on the elegant Plaza Frederic Chopin, adding another level of luxury to this area that includes the high-end design and art gallery, Gallery Red and the Dutch fashion brand Scotch and Soda.
Founded in Ibiza seven years ago by Dutch business partners, Don van Schie and Wiepke Brandenburg, who have a history both in fashion and design. The Star shops perfectly capture the laid-back and elegant lifestyle of the Balearics.
The designs of the comfortable and chic clothing line of the Dutch brand Braez, which is made with the softest, ecological cotton, perfectly matches the style of the Star shops. One of the most popular items in the shop, and the starting point for the business, is the “star towel,” a large woven cotton towel with their iconic star motif, that is perfect for indoor or outdoor use.
Star Ibiza defines casual luxury for any occasion, which is why the business is a continued success. With a focus on quality fabrics, a soft colour palette, and classic cuts, Star Ibiza has a timeless appeal that attracts an international clientele, who appreciate this style.
As Don says, “the designs are inspired by the Mediterranean lifestyle, the colours, smells, and landscapes, all of which inspire me every day.” After several visits to Mallorca, the two creatives fell in love with the island and decided to open up a store in Palma, a city that continues to surprise and enchant them.
Star Palma is the 4th Star shop to open, with three already established in Ibiza.
