When in Ibiza on holiday, Julia Restoin-Roitfeld always takes time to stop at Ganesha, a vintage shop owned by Vicente Hernández that is filled with treasures rumored to rival those in Aladdin's cave. Reportedly "a kind hearted grey whiskered character [with] more than an eye when it comes to shapely figures and bright Latin color," Hernández travels to South America regularly to find new merchandise for the shop making it the hot spot in Ibiza to discover funky vintage jewelry, sunglasses, bags, clothing, furniture, and more. Located at Calle Guillem de Montgri 14 in Ibiza Town, this magical little boutique consistently attracts famous visitors such as Kate Moss, Jade Jagger, and Elle Macpherson. Note as well that Ganesha is esteemed as Ibiza Town's oldest shop, a tribute to Vicente's eye for goodness. 

What are a few of Julia's favorite finds at Ganesha? She is wearing two of her treasures in the photographs seen here. While shopping at Ganesha in the summer of 2008, Julia scored the romantic white dress she wears above, the perfect lightweight accompaniment to the season. Another stroke of luck while shopping at Vicente's place — the gorgeous sequined dress we see to the right, a sparkling relic from the days of cabaret. Mademoiselle Restoin-Roitfeld remarks, "I bought this cabaret dress... in Ibiza in the summer of 2006. I saw it in the window, tried it on and it fit me perfectly! It was meant to be. I've only worn it once and it was photographed a lot. It's one of those pieces I can wear at home, for my own pleasure, or I could just frame and hang on the wall." Spoken like a true Roitfeld...
