PatBO Swim Resort 2022 Collection
Creative Director Patricia Bonaldi pulled inspiration from fashion’s most colorful decade, the 1980s for PatBO’s Resort 2022 Collection.
In beachwear, electric pinks, neon greens, and bright blues abound. The “Cindy Print” – inspired by 80s pop icon Cindy Lauper – features multicolor jellybean shapes that look equal parts retro and modern.
The brand’s signature “hybrid” dresses – part swim, part dress – return with fresh updates including inset shoulder pads, ribcage cut-outs, and crochet skirts.
In ready-to-wear, the tropical “Tarsila Print” is inspired by the paintings of Brazilian modernist artist Tarsila do Amoral. The graphic lines and pop colors of the print evoke the artist’s aesthetic. Each piece of clothing in the group is designed to feel light and effortless with flowy dresses, high waist palazzo pants, and easy tie-front tops.
