February seems eternally long when you have to deal with the cold for days on end. While I have an escape planned in a few weeks, I am ready for a warm-weather mindset now. I can’t wait to get a copy of Ibiza Bohemia by Assouline. I never been to Ibiza and it seems to be an island of contradictions—a mix of quiet hippies, disco-til-dawn diehards and generally chic people. Judging from these images, perhaps it needs to go on my To Explore list (as long as I can stay in the quiet hippie part). No matter, I am always a fan of escapism on paper too. (The image of the late Jacquline de Ribes by Slim Aarons, above, is enough to make me want the book and everything she’s wearing.) The book came out in October and must be popular; it is sold out almost everywhere except Net-a-Porter.
