Bora Bora

Badgley Mischka Resort 15

The Badgley Mischka Resort 2015 Collection is inspired by the colors and the flowers of Bora Bora, and by Paul Gauguin’s paintings.

Another Bora Bora-influenced collection : Proenza Schouler Spring/Summer 2010 (this show featured tie-dye pieces which made reference to a snorkeling trip to Bora Bora).

To read about Paul Gauguin-inspired collections, search for the « Paul Gauguin » post that I have published on June 8, 2013.
