Bimba & Lola turned to surrealist painter Maruja Mallo, one of the most significant visual artists of the Spanish avant-garde movement, for inspiration this season. Her 1952 painting Mermaids influenced the different materials used in the collection: fabric with shiny iridescent finishes, metallic leather, loose knits imitating fishing nets and stamped neoprene resembling sea sponges. Under the sea and on our wish list . . .
