We love women

MARIA SOLIVELLAS

Originally from a theatre background, Maria went back to her roots in Mallorca to set up the restaurant Ca na Toneta.

“I try and explain my landscape, who we are, where we come from and where we are headed through taste. As a chef I feel I am interpreting the region I live in”.

Self-taught, and nourished from her mother’s cooking, Maria has come up with her own food philosophy and is a self-confessed “fierce advocate for local, organic, and seasonal produce”. For her it is essential to work with your environment, to connect with local farmers and producers in Mallorca and to use local varieties.

Maria wears the Beeswax Coat and Headscarf and above the Kassar striped coat and pants.

Simplicity and balance are the two most important ingredients in her cooking: “It’s more complex that you think because you have to step back from your ego, allow the product to express itself and not overly interfere with something that already has its own expression, which is taste.”

 

For Maria, simplicity is an inspiring exercise that can be applied to any discipline, going beyond the surface and turning complexity around.

For her, the seasons are a manifestation of the now, the precise moment we live in: “ It’s an absolute reality. When we talk about seasonal produce, we’re talking about a product that’s at the best moment the earth can yield; it’s optimum point of maturity, that it’s not been forced to grow. It’s common sense”.

Maria wears the Asia shirt and the Lavender Pants.

Ca na Toneta, located at the foot of the Serra de Tramuntana, is deeply connected with the mountains and the forest, which is at its most opulent in autumn when walks through the woods are an absolute delight.

Maria admits she must have been a great harvester-gatherer in another life. That is why she devotes a lot of time to gathering wild produce and seeking out local suppliers, which in the end, is also another form of harvesting. 

ANNA BONNY

Noelia is the creator of Anna Bonny, a project that aims to help evolve how society perceives Breast Cancer, femininity and beauty.

Lavender jacket and pants with underneath the Studio 54 patch by Anna Bonny. 

Noelia kind of finds herself to be a pirate, she didn't seek out the role but whilst recovering from a radical mastectomy in 2015, and gazing at herself in the mirror, the way she saw herself changed. Noelia chose not to reconstruct and so was left with the dilemma of how to feel good with only one breast, a hard question but yet with a simple solution; she became a pirate. 

She slashed a beautiful bra in half and slung the remains across her scar like an eye patch. It was a startling moment, she felt liberated, and also her partner was suddenly seduced.

Noelia wears Kid jacket and skirt from the Cortana Fall Winter collection. 

Born out of personal necessity the mastectomy patch was born, a simple garment which aims to help mastectomized women come to peace with their new body image, gain confidence and normalize living with one breast. The patch is an adornment, a celebration of acceptance, a new option post-mastectomy.

I know and I have for me
that I am delightedand this is enough for the safety of my conscience. (The Quixote II, XLIX)

MAR AGUILÓ

 

Mar Aguiló, a dancer at the Compañía Nacional de Danza photographed in Mallorca, her birthplace. For Mar, dance way to return to the earth, to feel the tradition and the deep palpitation of the body attached to nature.

Water hollows stone,
wind scatters water,
stone stops the wind.
Water, wind, stone.
Wind carves stone,
stone's a cup of water,
water escapes and is wind.
Stone, wind, water.
Wind sings in its whirling,
water murmurs going by, unmoving stone keeps still.
Wind, water, stone.
Each is another and no other:
crossing and vanishing
through their empty names:
water, stone, wind.
