The chunky accessories from Bimba Y Lola‘s Agatha collection looks like a collection of lost and found objects along the beach, like this pair of necklace and earrings. The pendants mimic the marbling of an agate stone and are artfully tied with wires and chains — resulting in an unconventional yet statement fashion piece. One option to wear the pieces is with a simple white linen dress or over a solid coloured silky top.
