Offering a peek at what’s to come next year, Bimba Y Lola releases the lookbook for its latest collection #thisisSEDIMENTAL, drawing inspiration from Earth and human being. 

With unique patterns and cuts underscoring the modern silhouettes with naturalistic tendencies, the collection uses the layers of the Earth, the life cycles of trees, the passing of the years and the entire history that has shaped life today as points of reference.

Inspired by Japanese potters Keiko Fukuzama and Makoto Kagushima, micro-prints that mimic the erosion of water and rings of life stand out as the main elements of focus for the season.

Drawings on the surface of the clothing also put unpolished minerals and stones into perspective; think granites, sands, marbles, semi-precious and precious stones.

While voluminous pieces are draped and styled with fitted and knitted styles, the fabrics used are overall light and fresh, dominated by linen and glossy nylon.

Indeed a journey through time and space in nature’s spectrum, ensembles are completed with shoes and bags in natural leathers that emanate the textures of the earth’s surface; desert with coarse grain and crackled finishes. 

The jewellery line from the collection also features stones and resins in earrings with shells, hand-painted necklaces and enormous rings with stones.
