JAMES LAKELANBDIMBA Y LOLA LUXE KNITS

The Jewish Chronicle - - LIFE -

It’s not of­ten that a la­bel’s cloth­ing, ac­ces­sories and jew­ellery all make a great im­pres­sion. It’s usu­ally the case that one is cre­atively stronger than the other. How­ever, Bimba Y Lola gets it right ev­ery single time.

Bimba Y Lola is the brain­child of sis­ters Uxia and Maria Dominguez. Fash­ion runs in their blood (their un­cle is Adolfo Dominguez), but the Span­ish duo like to keep a low pro­file. Founded in 2006, they have only re­cently ar­rived on the high street but this was a well-thought-out strat­egy. Be­fore now, the la­bel has been the fash­ion­istas’ best kept se­cret. Known for their colour­ful and whim­si­cal prints the sis­ters con­tinue to cre­ate and seek out de­signs with orig­i­nal­ity. Their la­bel, named af­ter their two grey­hounds Bimba and

Lola are now pop­ping up all over the country. This sea­son they have taken their in­spi­ra­tion from the African Maa­sai peo­ple with strong tex­tile de­signs, strik­ing hues and crafted knots, drapes and pip­ing that lean to­wards the tra­di­tional dress of the

Maa­sai tribe.

This col­lec­tion is with­out doubt their best to date.

I can’t wait to see what’s next. Prices start from £25- £380
