Can Pep Rey, was founded in 2013 and named after a charming, beautiful ‘finca’ on the island of Ibiza. This house represented a place of escape, taking away the pressures of the modern world, and bringing its inhabitants back to a slower and easier time.
Founder of Can Pep Rey - Paul Conradi, has developed a brand that mimics this feeling of escapism, while focusing on simplicity and quality.
Lucy Folk recently teamed up with Can Pep Rey to deliver a small capsule collection of t-shirts. The tees feature a still life image shot by Nacho Alegre on the island of Los Enamorados, Ibiza.
The Lucy Folk x Can Pep Rey t-shirts are available in long and short sleeve and can be found in store & online now at lucyfolk.com.
In celebration of this collaboration, Lucy Folk chats to Paul Conradi about his favourite spots in and around the island of Ibiza.
I spent much of my childhood on the ´les Illetes` beach. Boat traffic to Formentera has grown to an unbearable size in the past years so we now frequent the Migjorn beach on the south side more often. It's a bit more rocky, but that gives it an additional edge as it keeps away the tourists and most boats.
Best scenic walk / exercise:
The islands size make it ideal for discovery by bike. There are many hidden gems on the western and eastern edges of the island.
Best lunch spot:
There is a tiny chiringuito on the eastern edge of Platja de Migjorn, which I highly recommend. It's called Bartolo.
A day in Formentera:
The best days in Formentera are spent with friends and a picnic on Espalmador. Access to Espalmador has been restricted in recent years as the island, which is separated from the main island by a narrow sea passage, is a natural reserve. However, it is a beautiful beach that is free of restaurants, and in the right time of the year one has it all too oneself. The interior of the island also hosts natural mud holes that are so full of salt you can float in them.
