An Inside Look at Design with BOP
On March 22, BOP, in collaboration with Quiksilver, honored the brand’s upcoming summer collection by welcoming designer Serena Mitnik-Miller to Madison. While attendees sipped champagne and nibbled on bright miniature cupcakes, they chatted it up and worked with Mitnik-Miller to craft fresh, flirty mobiles and, of course, took in all the Quicksilver pieces Mitnik-Miller designed!
Distinguishable by her use of bright colors and a picturesque irregularity, Mitnik-Miller crafts her colorful designs using watercolors. Shying away from the computer-generated designs on many pieces today, she prides herself on bringing design back to hand-drawn artistry. “No matter what I do differently, it always ends up being bright,” Mitnik-Miller explains about the inspiration for her designs. Quiksilver is so delighted with that colorful work the she is already working on looks for their next summer collection—meaning we all win!
BOP has featured some of Mitnik-Miller’s designs on their sales floor already, including her Zig Zag Maxi Dress. The pieces, which landed in the store immediately following the designer’s visit, include dresses, skirts and tanks covered with her signature stripes. Her summery looks and vibrant lines will get anyone in the mood for the next wave of warm weather.
