Boa-skin vest with inlaid star, designed by Willy, Ibiza. Probably available in England soon. Vest costs 4,980 pesetas, island shoes 80 pesetas.

More impact-making ideas from the romantic island of Ibiza.

The designer of the boa-skin vest in the first picture is also the stunning model for this gorgeous mini editorial, Willy van Rooy. You can still buy her beautiful designs on her website http://www.shopwillyvanrooy.com/.

(If her face looks a bit familiar, it might be because she’s also the model for my mannequin over at Liz Eggleston Vintage.)

Styling by Sue Hone.

Photographed by Karl Ferris.

Scanned from Petticoat, 18th July 1970.

Fringed dress and pants by Silvien, Formentera. 5,000 pesetas from Zoe boutique, Ibiza. Jewellery chosen from a selection in the boutique.
