Sir Joan, Ibiza – an urban oasis on the legendary Spanish island

Travel 38 luxury maritime-inspired guest rooms and suites and popular Amsterdam-based Japanese restaurant, IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar.     The first Spanish property for the Sir Hotels is prominently located in the centre of Ibiza, overlooking the port and the old town. Consisting of 38 rooms and suites, including two penthouses and on the ground floor, a pool, cabanas, as well as two restaurants and a bar, the hotel is open throughout the year. The top floor penthouse suites, boast 80m2 wraparound terraces with 360 degree views of Ibiza, outdoor seating, a private cabana and an open-air kitchen. Penthouse guests can enjoy a private IZAKAYA dining experience with one of the restaurants chefs.     “As with all Sir Hotels, it is essential that Sir Joan reflects the ethos of the surrounding area. We were inspired by the marina, the ocean, but also by the people on the island. By combining contemporary design with nostalgic details, we aim to create a unique urban oasis at the heart of the world-famous island.” Liran Wizman, owner and founder of Sir Hotels.     The interiors are designed by award-winning architects and interior designersBaranowitz + Kronenberg, and pay homage to yacht-living and the ocean. Barcelona-based Architects Ribas & Ribas have created a unique and contemporary checkered façade in the heart of the island, just steps away from famous clubs such as Pacha and Lio. The property boasts a collection of curated artworks featuring work from Spanish art legend Joan Hernandez Pijuan, and Carlos Irijalba Inercia, alongside photographs from Ibiza-based photographer Landry A.     The ground floor public area evokes a ‘members only’ social club. Inside, vertical corrugated steel bars line up along the interior walls, resonating with naval ropes and the erosion of metal by the sea, while the outside area boasts a triangular pool, heated throughout the winter season, lined with cabanas and lounge chairs.     In the public space, the outside blends into the inside, and is home to one of theproperty’s two restaurants, IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar, set to be the island’s nexthotspot. Originating in Amsterdam, the iconic restaurant offers guests and locals a culinary experience of contemporary Japanese cuisine fused with Peruvian flavours.     The second restaurant, THE BUTCHER, is an award-winning, high end burger bar which is accessed through a separate entrance. The popular Amsterdam eatery willbe open throughout the night, ideal for the island’s late-night revellers. Both restaurants are founded and owned by Yossi Eliyahoo and Liran Wizman of THE ENTOURAGE GROUP.     "The hotel is based on the most spectacular location close to the beach and the city centre of Ibiza. Truly could not be on a better seaside location, with all the best shops around the hotel and some incredible restaurants as well in the area around the hotel including Izakaya and The Butcher which are both located in the hotel itself. Sir Joan not only offers the mesmerizing views, stylish design but also great fine dining at their restaurant IZAKAYA, one beautiful outdoor pool with  panoramic views but also the sexiest, stylish and modern rooms.  All in all this has been one of the recent travel highlights definitely, and cannot wait to stay there again on my next trip to Ibiza." - Timotej Letonja   A beautiful fashionable five star boutique hotel near by the Old town of Ibiza. Modern designed building that reflects it maritime surroundings. The hotel has the dashing looks of a luxury yacht: walnut flooring, stainless-steel ceilings and mirror-like wall-panelling that ripples like waves when you walk by. Rooms are modern, beautiful, clean, optical spacious and practical.  Professional, kind and good looking staff are making sure you feel very welcome. At Restaurant Izakaya, directly next to the beautiful modern designed pool, we had an excellent Japanese- Peruvian fine dining experience. The menu features fresh sushi, sashimi and a variety of exquisite meat and fish, prepared on a traditional robata grill or in a hibachi fire bowl. Presentation, quality products en service are on point. Everything together, Sir Joan Hotel is a great hotel that adds a special value to your stay on this beautiful island Ibiza. - Bart Grein     http://www.sirhotels.com/ 38 luxury maritime-inspired guest rooms and suites and popular Amsterdam-based Japanese restaurant, IZAKAYA Asian Kitchen & Bar.     The first Spanish property for the Sir Hotels is prominently located in the centre of Ibiza, overlooking the port and the old town.

In conversation with Joris Bijdendijk

In conversation with Joris Bijdendijk

Food We had a big pleasure speaking with the chef of RIJKS Restraurant Joris Bijdendijk.       What is your focus when creating a new menu? How often do you change the menu in RIJKS?   Our focus is the products of our beautiful suppliers. That's where it all starts. So we start with the product and then we see what kind of creative and tasteful stuff we can make with it. And we try to change at least one or two dishes once every two weeks.     How are you dealing with and adapting to the current situation in the world? You are also doing a takeaway menu, can you tell us more about the menu and process of ordering?   The biggest and most important part of surviving crisis is that you adapt as soon as possible. So we started our takeaway actually exactly one year ago, even before we had the first lockdown in the Netherlands. And we just thought this was the thing to do because we needed to change our business model as soon as possible. And we were expecting restaurants to be closed shortly and that was the case. So we built our website into a web shop and our web shop related to time slots so we can exactly see what time guests will pick up their orders, etc. And we also do delivery and the whole logistics, we're able to do it ourselves.      What inspired you to become a chef? Did you always envision becoming a chef, already as a child?   I'm born and raised in Amsterdam, grew up on the farm with my parents in Belgium. And when I was 16 I worked as a dish washer in the kitchen of a well-known Amsterdam restaurant. That’s when I decided to pursue a career as a chef. I first gained knowledge from fishermen, butchers and farmers and later on technically learned from the best chefs.  At the age of 19 I started working in the kitchen of Ron Blaauw and in six years I got promoted to the position of kitchen chef. After that I went to France, to Montpellier, where I worked as a chef the partie and later a souschef at the renowned star restaurant Le Jardin des Sens.    I returned to the Netherlands in 2012 to work as chef at restaurant Bridges at Hotel de Grand in Amsterdam and in 2014 I became the executive chef at Rijks.     Where does the name of the restaurant RIJKS come from? Does it come from the fact it is right next to the RIJKS MUSEUM?   It's exactly that. Be clear, short, simple. Everyone knows it. It's the same house style and typo and a very strong brand – Rijks, Rijks Museum, Rijks Restaurant.      Your menu always offers a variety of incredible dishes. Which would you say are your signature dishes and also signature drinks of the restaurant?   We changed our whole wine program. Our sommelier Max van Bockel started that two years ago. But it has totally to do with everything we do in the restaurant. We won a Wine Spectator award for it and we are the first restaurant in the world with a specialization on Dutch wines. So that's super interesting. One of our most known dishes is the The Millefeuille of beetroot. It is served with a beurre blanc made with Tomasu soy sauce. Tomasu is a soy sauce that is made right here in the Netherlands, in Rotterdam.      How do you adapt as a chef to the trend of more plant based cooking as well as being conscious about the environment?   Well, ever since we are open, we have plenty of dishes only based on vegetables. Not vegan, though. I think that's a different league. We can serve vegan, but we love cooking with butter as well. But like if you used red produce from small scale producers, it is authentic breeds of chicken and cows and everything. Biodiversity is biosecurity. So we had that in mind, but what we do is not because of being conscious of the environment, but just because of what we do. We love to cook with the stuff we cook with. And by accident, it's also kind of being conscious. But that's not like the main goal of the restaurant. It’s just that we don't like to use shady products.      Can you share with us more about the design of the restaurant? It is truly beautiful, I especially love the open kitchen lay-out and the big bar.   It's designed by Paul Linse. And he did an amazing job. There's actually almost no art in the restaurant, because we just simply cannot compete with the museum. I still think it's kind of timeless. It has been six and a half years, almost seven years since we opened the restaurant and still when I enter the restaurant, I feel butterflies. The guy has an amazing talent and right feeling for how to work with an environment like this.     Can you describe to our readers the meaning of “kitchen of the Low Lands” that you produce at RIJKS.   I started the foundation “Low Food” and I will explain you what our goal is. Actually the “Low Food” movement has set to go change Dutch gastronomy. We want to make Dutch food culture leading when it comes to forward thinking on subjects as sustainability and inclusion. And in a world where food security and sustainability of the food and agriculture system are two of the big themes. We believe that the food movement has an important role in changing food culture. So the “Low Food” movement will therefore act as kind of a network agent and a platform where new ideas are created and implemented. And you can find us, for example, with super interesting conversations on clubhouse. I think in the coming weeks we will host super interesting conversations with our club – “Low Food Club” on clubhouse. And we also have our foundation. We have a money fund from the government to do research. We started three researches. You can find that on our website. And we are working on a chef's academy. We are finding out together with our community what it means and what we serve in Rijks. For me “kitchen of the Low Lands” of the Netherlands is working with products from here. But also there are so many influences in our country. And as long as you appreciate those influences and you know the story behind, you can put them on your menu with respect.      RIJKS was awarded a Michelin star in 2017. What was the first feeling when awarded and how did that impact the restaurant?   Revenue went... (Laughing) - Bookings went up. But this is like the Oscar of our business and we were, we are still so proud. We are the biggest restaurant in the Netherlands gaining a Michelin star. It was never our goal, but we are amazingly proud and we do everything to keep it.      Would you be able to share with us and our readers a healthy recipe that anybody could make at home.   I would say that - I did a soup. I launched a soup, a canned pea soup, or “Snert soup” as it is called in the Netherlands. We have had an amazing success with a soup book and soup merchandising as well. We will launch new soup flavors in Can. Can is one of the most sustainable packaging.      What is the highlight of last year for you? No matter what a year it has been.   There's so many, we have so many highlights of last year and eventually we even won an award for all of our entrepreneurship of the of the past year. But we did like a Ferris Wheel with twenty seven restaurants. We did pop ups, we did free Heri Heri to celebrate “Keti Koti”. And also Liberation Day in the Netherlands. We made everything into something positive.   We had a big pleasure speaking with the chef of RIJKS Restraurant Joris Bijdendijk.       What is your focus when creating a new menu?

TOMMY HILFIGER REIMAGINES ICONIC STYLES IN TOMMYXROMEO CAPSULE COLLECTION CO-DESIGNED WITH ROMEO HUNTE

Fashion Tommy Hilfiger, announces the launch of the Fall 2021 TommyXRomeo capsule co-designed by Mr. Tommy Hilfiger and Brooklyn designer and long-term mentee, Romeo Hunte. The collection dives into theTOMMY HILFIGER archives, using Romeo Hunte’s signature deconstruction techniques to reconstruct, remix and reimagine iconic pieces like the classic bonded trench coat remixed with sailing jacket color-blocking or clashed with a leather biker jacket. The TommyXRomeo capsule builds on the company’s ambitious People’s Place Program, a three-pillared platform with the mission of advancing representation in fashion and beyond. The Fall 2021 TommyXRomeo capsule will be available starting August 12, 2021 on tommy.com in the US and Europe, exclusive wholesale partner Selfridges, and on RomeoHunte.com.     “As a young, upcoming designer, I was lucky to be guided by incredible leaders who made a huge impact on my career,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “I am passionate about passing that on, mentoring the next generation of design talent. I’ve been supportive of and worked with Romeo Hunte for over five years. He is one of those truly exceptional newcomers – someone you know is going to make an impact as soon as you see his work.  I’m really proud of our capsule - it's truly a meeting point of our two worlds. Together we’ve really focused on passing the mic to the next generation of BIPOC creatives and thought leaders to increase representation and amplify their talent globally. Through the People’s Place Program, we want to give them a true platform to shine.”     “Tommy has been such a supportive mentor to me over the years,” said Romeo Hunte. “Reinvention is a fundamental part of my design DNA, so pushing the boundaries of the brand’s archives has been an incredibly creative and meaningful experience. We also wanted to take this concept further, challenging the status quo from the design process to the campaign and the crew to re-imagine and redefine the future. I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved and hope to inspire the next generation of talent to dream big”.       For the Fall 2021 TommyXRomeo capsule, Tommy Hilfiger opened the archives to Romeo, clashing classic TOMMY HILFIGER design codes with Romeo Hunte’s signature deconstruction techniques and with a focus on non-gender specific outerwear. The collection brings a modern and bold twist to the icons that the brand is best known for – the trench coat, the biker jacket, the Oxford shirt.

Tommy Hilfiger, announces the launch of the Fall 2021 TommyXRomeo capsule co-designed by Mr. Tommy Hilfiger and Brooklyn designer and long-term mentee, Romeo Hunte. The collection dives into theTOMMY HILFIGER archives, using Romeo Hunte’s signature deconstruction techniques to reconstruct, remix and reimagine iconic pieces like the classic bonded trench coat remixed with sailing jacket color-blocking or clashed with a leather biker jacket. The TommyXRomeo capsule builds on the company’s ambitious People’s Place Program, a three-pillared platform with the mission of advancing representation in fashion and beyond. The Fall 2021 TommyXRomeo capsule will be available starting August 12, 2021 on tommy.com in the US and Europe, exclusive wholesale partner Selfridges, and on RomeoHunte.com.     “As a young, upcoming designer, I was lucky to be guided by incredible leaders who made a huge impact on my career,” said Tommy Hilfiger. “I am passionate about passing that on, mentoring the next generation of design talent. I’ve been supportive of and worked with Romeo Hunte for over five years. He is one of those truly exceptional newcomers – someone you know is going to make an impact as soon as you see his work.  I’m really proud of our capsule - it's truly a meeting point of our two worlds. Together we’ve really focused on passing the mic to the next generation of BIPOC creatives and thought leaders to increase representation and amplify their talent globally. Through the People’s Place Program, we want to give them a true platform to shine.”     “Tommy has been such a supportive mentor to me over the years,” said Romeo Hunte. “Reinvention is a fundamental part of my design DNA, so pushing the boundaries of the brand’s archives has been an incredibly creative and meaningful experience. We also wanted to take this concept further, challenging the status quo from the design process to the campaign and the crew to re-imagine and redefine the future. I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved and hope to inspire the next generation of talent to dream big”.       For the Fall 2021 TommyXRomeo capsule, Tommy Hilfiger opened the archives to Romeo, clashing classic TOMMY HILFIGER design codes with Romeo Hunte’s signature deconstruction techniques and with a focus on non-gender specific outerwear. The collection brings a modern and bold twist to the icons that the brand is best known for – the trench coat, the biker jacket, the Oxford shirt.

Brands like Nikolaj Storm Copenhagen, with their genderless and seasonless collections that focus on keeping things local and minimising waste at all parts of the supply chain, are crucial in pushing the fashion industry towards becoming the planet positive industry that we believe it can be.     The runners-up, Mother of Pearl and Teatum Jones were also recognized by the jury as outstanding examples of brands that inspire and integrate sustainability throughout the entire supply chain while creating bespoke fashion pieces that are wardrobe heroes.     The winner was chosen by seven jury members including model and environmental activist, Arizona Muse; CEO of Copenhagen Fashion Week, Cecilie Thorsmark; editor-in-chief of VOGUE Scandinavia, Martina Bonnier; president & CEO of WGSN, Carla Buzasi; sustainability and brand advisor Dio Kurazawa; Director of Sustainability at Zalando, Kate Heiny; and Buying Director designer at Zalando, Anaheta von Berenberg.

Samsøe Samsøe presents the new Spring & Summer 2022 collection ‘Chasing the sun’

Fashion Week ‘Chasing the Sun’ is the name of the Spring Summer 2022 collection by Samsøe Samsøe. It o ers an optimistic view of the world, and delves into the sense of never ending travels and adventures: the dreamingand hoping of brighter days ahead and afeeling of positivity within us. It attempts to capture that euphoric and inevitable desire tobreak free and explore.     The collection takes us through a time lapse, where we touch base with the inspiring and de ning 70’s and 80’s as well as take a small peek into 90’s fashion. The overall feeling and mood of the collection is retro, yet elevated. Contemporary prints, nostalgic patterns, updated jacquards and nuances in silhouettes give us a revival but which is very much in line with the trends of the new 20’s.     ‘The collection, for me, is all about explorations, travels and freedom. The freedom we’ve all missed the past year, and the travels we will be able to do again so soon. The new relationships we will gain, and the chasing of newness we’ve all longed for! I really wanted to bring across the sense of positivity and the yearning for summer, and with the colours and silhouettes of this collection, I believe we achieved that.’ – Gitte Wetter, Intermediate Head of Design.     This season, menswear recharges with the playfulness of the 70’s, portrayed in both prints and colourways. Pants are wide legged, andthe collars of shirts are slightly elongated.Jacquards and embroidered shirting add to the tactility, as do heavy knitted, loose tted cardigans. Sun-bleached colourways add to the dreamy, road trippy feel of the collection. To balance out short sleeve shirts in crisp cottons, lyocell and hemp, there is impeccably tailored suiting in wool and structured twill, both with a nod to the classic 80’s silhouettes.     Womenswear tells a story of a power woman on the move. A sense of youth, optimism and e ortlessness are concepts that describe this collection. A new colour palette is introduced; turquoise, lime greens and bright fuchsias contrast with hues of bronzed browns, dirty beige and dusty blues. Here, we see more of a time travel from 70’ssilhouettes in crochet dresses and shirtingand 80’s structured shoulders in sexy, belted suit jackets to 90’s references in leather wrap skirts in rich brown tones.     For SS22, Samsøe Samsøe has reached a level of 80,81% more responsibly sourced materials for the styles in the collection: a big step closer to their 2024 goal of reaching 100%responsible materials across all collections. ‘Chasing the Sun’ is the name of the Spring Summer 2022 collection by Samsøe Samsøe.

Louis Vuitton launches the new fragrance  "Spell on You"

Louis Vuitton launches the new fragrance "Spell on You"

Fragrances A sensual prolongation of the travelling spirit that has been the essence of the House since its founding, Parfums Louis Vuitton now unveils a new women’s fragrance inspired by the very rst of all journeys: emotion. In the original sense of the term: that which puts us in motion. Composed in Grasse by Louis Vuitton Master Perfumer, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud, Spell On You captures the excitement of lovers’ games. The delicious tension that arises when two lovers are drawn to one another like magnets.     The Game of Love.     Seeking. Finding. Surrendering, then shying away... and starting all over again. As a playground, amorous passion is an utter thrill. At once romantic and mischievous, carnal and jubilant, the latest perfume by Louis Vuitton captures the ambivalence of intimacy, wavering between sensuality and complicity. An ecstatic betwixt and between!     A Magical Impression.     A passionate creator, Master Perfumer Jacques Cavallier Belletrud dedicates an irresistibly seductive fragrance trail to the woman who is “both romantic and a conqueror.” It is a scent that becomes one with its wearer, granting her a powerful force of attraction. Olfactory enchantment and a magnetic, haunting allure, as its name suggests. Spell On You: three heady syllables compose an unforgettable refrain. Like an invitation one simply can’t refuse. A hypnotic fragrance, Spell On You concentrates its charm right down to its colour: a simultaneously innocent and provocative pink, at once fresh and sensual. From start to finish, Louis Vuitton’s new women’s fragrance plays the card of seduction right on the line between spontaneity and sophistication.     An Ode to Iris.     Where there is love, there are flowers. Fascinated by their symbolism as much as the variety of their olfactory nuances, Jacques Cavallier Belletrud has made flowers his favourite creative territory. Today, he weaves the seduction of Spell On You around one of the most precious among them: the iris. A flower whose transformation into essences requires six years of patience. Three years underground, to develop all the facets of the scent contained in its rhizomes, and then three more years of drying before extraction: five tons are required to obtain one kilogram of absolute... “It’s like the finest varietal in a grand cru,” concludes the Master Perfumer, who marvels at its unrivalled appeal.     Available as of 2nd September 2021 at select Louis Vuitton stores and from louisvuitton.com #LVParfums #louisvuitton A sensual prolongation of the travelling spirit that has been the essence of the House since its founding, Parfums Louis Vuitton now unveils a new women’s fragrance inspired by the very rst of all journeys: emotion.
