We’re no strangers to Spanish fashion brands. Zara came into our lives in the early 90s, can you imagine? However, made-in-Spain, or as they call it, #MarcaEspaña, is much more than Zara, Mango or Massimo Dutti. Bimba Y Lola, remember this name!
The Spanish fashion scene is creative, diverse and young, that’s why I always consider Madrid as one of my top shopping spree destinations.
You are already tired to see all kinds of examples of the French Girl Style or the Posh Brit Style, right? Why not explore the Spanish-girl style? Colourful, wearable, classic with a twist, in other words, a style that can accompany you during many seasons.
And Bimba Y Lola is one of the best and most affordable places to shop the avant-garde Spanish style.
Founded in 2005 by the siblings María and Uxía Dominguez, who came from a family with a strong history in fashion: María and Uxío’s uncle is the designer Adolfo Dominguez, and their father, Jesús Dominguez is the finance wizard behind the STL textile group. Bimba y Lola now counts with more than 220 stores in 14 different countries.
Trivia information: the name Bimba y Lola stands for the owners’ dogs names.
The Bilbao fashion house is strong in accessories, bags and shoes, with bold colours and edgy prints. You can see this also in their Spring/Summer19 campaign, #thisisSEDIMENTAL, where the brand partnered with Synchrodogs, the Ukraine-based art and photography duo, Tania Shcheglova and Roman Noven.
The SS19 collection is an interpretation of the earth, water, sand and minerals inspired by Japanese potters Keiko Fukuyama and Makoto Kagoshima.
Bimba Y Lola is now standing on the top ten list of Spanish textile brands, behind some of the biggest names such as the Inditex.
