A Vibrant Splash of Colour, Prints, and Accessories

Renowned for its accessories, bags, and shoes, Bimba y Lola revels in bold colours and edgy prints. The brand’s Spring/Summer ’19 campaign was a testament to this ethos. In a brilliant collaboration with Synchrodogs, the Ukraine-based art and photography duo, Bimba y Lola brought the earthy colours of water, sand, and minerals to life.

The collection drew inspiration from Japanese potters Keiko Fukuyama and Makoto Kagoshima, offering a unique blend of Spanish fashion with an oriental touch.
