Hello, my name is Vanessa and I am a shopaholic! Yes, that’s right, like so many other ladies out there, I am addicted to that euphoric rush of shopping. Much like a cheesy rom-com (but swap out the man for the clothes) your eyes meet the object of your desire from across the room, you try it on for size and realise, it’s the perfect fit… and that point you know you’ll do anything to make it yours. This was pretty much my impulse reaction when I spotted Bimba Y Lola‘s SS15 Tropicana collection.
Seeing as how we live in Singapore’s hot and humid bubble, seasons aren’t exactly something we need to concern ourselves with. That being said, the benefit is we can embrace the Spring/Summer collections as soon as they hit the stores… win! Taking inspiration from Brazil’s tropical landscapes, exotic wildlife, bright fruits and Carnivale attitude, Bimba Y Lola’s Tropicana collection embodies everything I love about summer style.
Using fabrics such as neoprene and stretch cotton, the Tropicana collection is a contrasting mix of clean silhouettes with bold colours, geometric and tropical prints, and fabulous accessories. Personally, I’m obsessed with their multi-coloured embroidered body one-pieces and crop tops, perfect beach-to-bar-wear for chilled out weekends.
I couldn’t possibly talk about Bimba Y Lola without mentioning the accessories, and the Tropicana collection has a serious hold on my sartorial heart. Inspired by the Amazon, the jewellery is fun, fresh and flirty, I mean, how adorable are the fruit basket earrings and banana bracelet?! But I warn you, don’t get in the way of me and the cockatoo-inspired ear cuff and ring, or I may just go Mockingjay on your ass!
The Tropicana collection has already hit the shelves so what are you waiting for, girls? Get the fiesta started and step into Spring! Want to see more? Check out their SS15 Tropicana Campaign vid above!
