The Joy of Dressing Up

On a recent balmy afternoon in Mallorca, a group of women – connected through their affinity for the island and creative spirits – delved into the Borgo de Nor High Summer 2021 collection. Their small gathering was a celebration of female friendship, with laughter, dancing, wine and a home-cooked afternoon lunch. Donning our latest collection’s lively prints and playful silhouettes, they also remind us there is much joy to be found in dressing up. Meet Raquel, Tatiana, Patricia, Carolina, Claire, Maria and Stefania.

I felt very at home with my friends, and very fortunate to be able to gather with more people in these times. Mallorca is my home; I was born here. Every day is a dream.

Song playing on repeat: I’m welcoming summer with In The Summertime by Mungo Jerry. Currently dreaming of: As I mentioned before, my life is already a dream :-) Can’t wait to read: Walk Through Walls: A Memoir by Marina Abramović.

I felt fabulous, floaty and feminine with a freedom of movement as I hadn't worn a dress for a while and this cotton poplin one transported me to a Mediterranean summer. I love the landscape in Mallorca, particularly on this side of the island. The Tramuntana, getting lost on a hike to the rocky beaches in the summer with a siesta by the pine trees, and a delicious dinner by an olive grove in great company with a full moon rising.

Song playing on repeat: Tequila by Nenny. Dreaming of: A new love. Can’t wait to read: The Diary of Anaïs Nin.

Clothing has to be comfortable for me, allowing me to move freely during the day. Mostly, I like to let the quality of natural fibres speak for themselves, their drape and movement, how they feel on my skin and their energy are essential to me. Another important element is colour. Colours are mirrors to my emotions. It was an awesome day of gathering after the confinements with fun and creative people - old friends and new ones - filled with many smiles, laughter and conversations, and enjoying gifts from the sea and sparkling wine.

The landscape is so beautiful in Mallorca, its diversity, the sea, the mountains in the north coast, the little villages with their stone houses and peaceful life. A walk between olive trees and herds of sheep is definitely a place I like to be, but also out on the sea, watching the sunset from a sailing boat and waiting for the moon to rise while the coast turns into a theatre set with sparkling lights at dusk.

Song playing on repeat: Little Flower Garden by Djivan Gasparyan. Currently dreaming of: A better world, where humans and nature walk hand in hand again. Can’t wait to read: The Beauty of Ordinary Things by Soetsu Yanagi

I wear shirts often, so the style of this dress fitted me perfectly and the belt made the shape super feminine. I felt very comfortable but chic at the same time. There is such a nice and strong feminine energy in Mallorca, I always feel at home surrounded by the goddesses of the island.

Song playing on repeat: Starry Night by Peggy Gou (I feel like a good dance). Currently dreaming of: A full week of kite surfing. Can’t wait to read: The Street by Ann Petry.

I picked the little flower dress for a summer day as I felt it was loyal to my style and a tribute to both Sharon Tate and Jane Birkin, two of my timeless style icons. Mallorca feels like home to me; I've been going all my life, since I was a kid. I love just taking it easy, walking to a cala and spending the day there, then having a nice Mediterranean dinner à la fresca.

Songs playing on repeat: Just some classic Dancing Barefoot by Patti Smith, Lost in Music by Anita Lane and the last Tyler the Creator album. Currently dreaming of: Going back to Mallorca this summer, obviously! And also making some personal projects come true very soon... Can’t wait to read: Swing Time by Zadie Smith and Fear of Flying by Erica Jong.
