What do you love most about the island?

MARCELLA - I tell Daniel it’s my second home. I love the energy of the people, the climate and it’s so beautiful! I came to Ibiza in 2001 when Daniel and I met, so that’s the most special reason why I love the island… We met at a magical villa close to Sant Rafel.

How has Ibiza inspired your label Casa De Novelas?

DANIEL - With our label we’re going to try to combine the formality of a blazer with an element of freedom that you find in Ibiza, which will be challenging and make for an inspiring collection.

Who has influenced your personal style?

MARCELLA - Debbie Harry, she’s so sexy and hot and cool, I like that edgy, punk look.

Daniel - I like Gianni Agnelli, he’s a definite style icon.

What do you never leave the house without?

MARCELLA – My sunglasses by Italia Independent, they have some really unique styles and I also like Rayban.

DANIEL – I never leave the house without a watch on. I collect watches and also write a column for a magazine called Hautetime, it’s a passion of mine. I love the Panerai Bronzo.

Your favourite drink to have in the Ibiza sunshine?

MARCELLA - Ibizkus rose from Ibiza, we fill up our fridge with it when we arrive. I also always enjoy sangria, white, red or with cava … Any sangria’s great! I really like the one they make at the Malibu Beach Club.

Do you have a favourite photograph you’ve taken on the island?

MARCELLA – I have a photo of our daughter, Siena, at Las Dalias. She’s wearing this cute dress and has wild curly hair. It really captures the energy of the island and the colours are amazing.

Where do you take your children on the island?

MARCELLA - Our daughter Siena actually celebrated her third birthday at Lio! They sang to her and we had a huge cake and lots of dancers at the table. We love Lio!

DANIEL - We try to incorporate our kids in our lives as much as possible. Just because you have children doesn’t mean your life has to stop.

What tracks are you listening to at the moment?

BOTH - We’ve been listening to a lot on Soundcloud. We love Jose Maria Ramon from Ibiza Global Radio. He’s amazing, as is Solomun.

Favourite restaurants on the island?

BOTH - La Paloma, Lio and Camí de Balàfia.

Parties in Ibiza?

DANIEL - The closing party at Amante was good fun last year and of course Ushuaia is amazing.

MARCELLA - We saw Luciano play the first time we went to Ushuaia and we also saw Blondish who are friends of ours. We go to Ushuaia at least once a week when we are in Ibiza. The Amnesia closing parties are always incredible too and I’m a big fan of DC10. The early days were amazing, and they always have the best DJs.
