Bimba Y Lola SS14 Collection [Media Preview]

Kooky Spanish import Bimba & Lola presented its Spring/Summer 2014 collection inspired by avant-garde artist Maruja Mallo’s body of work. Based off her 1952 piece “Sirenas” (Mermaids), the collection draws from the inventive, rebellious painter who fronted the Art Deco movement.

Prints are drawn from the streets of Miami with its strong Art Deco influence: the plants along its colourful avenues, the spirited graffiti adorning its buildings, and the mermaids at Weeki Wachee Theme Park are notable motifs throughout the collection.

Geometric shapes, and a fascination with symmetry are translated into Bimba & Lola’s silhouettes, structures and cuts while this season’s textures and jewelry revolves around the thematic feature of life at sea that resonates around Mallo’s artwork.

And I shall let the pictures do the rest of the talking (or most of it haha).

This leather jacket caught my eye. I love how it's feminine with a hint of ruggedness, so different from the usual leather jackets we see!

And accessories galore! They're very playful and very quirky!

If there's ever a film adaptation for "The Little Mermaid", these accessories would be perfect haha.

Probably the most wearable/ready-to-wear necklace, which is a very beautiful piece too!
