Ibiza by Heidi Gosman, of Heidi Klein

many in London, Heidi Klein and
her partner Penny Klein had found it impossible to buy swimwear out
of season. The struggle was real, so in 2002 Heidi and Penny
launched their one-stop holiday shop in Notting Hill, the first of
its kind in the city. Their aim was simple: to sell classic,
flattering and glamorous beachwear year-round. Soon the shop grew
to house their own collection and to date they enjoy constant
demand for their quintessential designs. The focus of the company
is also about creating a positive experience around resort wear (we
all know how unpleasant buying a bikini can be). Stepping into
their shop is like instantly being transported to one of the myriad
sunny holiday destinations their collections are named after. We
spoke to Heidi Gosman to find out a little bit more about her
favourite spot: Ibiza.
