To celebrate the third edition of its summer store in Ibiza, and its “revival collection” with Paula’s Boutique, all the while paying tribute to the island’s heritage, Loewe has launched a new musical collaboration.
Close to Paradise is a hymn to wild dancing nights and freehearted souls and captures the long lasting relationship between the fashion brand and La Isla.
It was written and produced by alternative rock/electronic band Soulwax, and curated by iconic (and fashion favorite) sound director Micheal Gaubert. The track is narrated by four local insiders (from dancers to fashion designers and club promoters), whose voices and stories are set against an eclectic and escalating tempo, leading the listeners through the many shades of Ibiza’s personality.
The limited edition will be published in collaboration with The Vinyl Factory, and DEEWEE, Soulwax’s record label, and will feature artworks by Parisian Ill-Studio, it will also be available for download on Spotify and iTunes from August.
The EP is part of a bigger editorial project/love declaration to the legendary party location, titled Ibiza: Close to Paradise, which will also be available for download on iTunes, an ode to the isle’s evocative location and personalities.
