Nina’s picks: Shopping

There’s nothing better than finding that missing thing in your life. The right pair of shoes, the perfect gift for a hard-to-buy-for friend, your favourite perfume ever or, if you happen to be on holiday, that souvenir you cannot live without. The first thing any well travelled person does when arriving somewhere new is to hit the pavements and check out the shops. You never know when or where that missing piece will pop up and make your day. MedSpa Ibiza founder Nina Peter-Väth is a veteran Ibiza shopper and here she shares her three current favourite Ibiza stores.

Rivieras

“I love these classic summer shoes,” she say. Rivieras have been a staple wardrobe item for stylish Euro travellers for years. Super comfortable without forsaking cool, they are the perfect footwear for Ibiza. “My favourite pair are red suede and for my son I like the navy blue,” says Nina. You’ll find something for the whole family from the expansive range of fabrics, colours and prints in the flagship store in Ibiza town, located on Carrer de Vicente Cuervo, 8 – just off the main shopping strip of Vara de Rey.

TANIS Ibiza

This oasis of interior design, found on the road from Ibiza to Santa Gertrudis, is the brainchild of one of Nina’s good friends, Austrian born interior designer Tatjana Berger Sandhofer. “TANIS Ibiza brings a refreshing cool Nordic look and feel to Ibiza, with their selection of furniture and materials,” she says. Timeless pieces, classic linens and fabrics, elegant lighting and gorgeous outdoor furniture makes Tanis one of the most innovative design meccas on the island. The upholstery service and in store cafe are an extra bonus.

SKINS

This iconic Dutch concept store has finally reached the shores of Ibiza, set in a slick modern building on Ignacio Wallis in Ibiza town. The shelves are lined with all manner of hard-to-find and bespoke skincare, perfumes and cosmetics. “I love to buy my scented Diptyque candles and my Laura Mercier cosmetics from Skins,” says Nina. Every single item in store is top shelf quality and the staff are specially trained to read your mind – seriously, they are amazing at interpreting exactly what you need!
