What else do you need on Mallorca but a sunny day and some time off? Just a few basics, like my 10 favorite must-haves that will fit you from head to toe. Most of them are designed in Palma and manufactured in Spain. And you can find them in beautiful stores only a few steps away from the main streets. Let me take you on a little shopping tour, today.
The sun yellow two-piece from Suite 13 gets you in the mood. Summer is barefoot season. At La Principal I just discovered a pair of plain matching sandals with crossover front from Act Series. Both brands are Palma based.
Same goes for SURO, my preferred outfitter when it comes to swimwear. The dark blue Delta swimsuit features a sophisticated cut and is made from recycled nylon fishing nets.
Top your outfit with a classic straw hat like the ones at Casa Juliá. Made in Spain, where people know to protect their skin. And treat yourself to a fancy manicure. The bright coral shade called Gypsy from Kure Bazaar at Botons is almost chemical free.
Don’t forget to bring along a fouta, your perfect companion for a day on the beach. The handwoven towels at Harmonie are made from natural Egypt cotton and come in countless summery shades and pattern. A fouta is the perfect utensil for a picnic, your place to chill out with friends or to dive into a book. You find an exquisite selection of must-reads at Rata Corner.
My stainless steel bottle from Cleanwave.org helps to save the sea by reducing plastic waste and supporting the non-profit initiative.
I pack all of my stuff into a tote bag like the signature cotton bag from Seattle Vintage with the famous Chief Seattle print. A real eye-catcher that goes with any outfit.
Listo, ready to get started. Just open the Muvon car sharing app to get a 100% eco-powered ride. Enjoy your day on Mallorca!
