Childhood friends Barbara Boccara and Sharon Krief have always shared a passion for fashion and travels. In 2003, they started to implement their vision into developing their own brand: Ba&Sh (the letters of their first names). Their collection is inspired by hippie chic and rock influences and revolves around the idea of the everyday ‘ideal closet’. Their favorite vacation destination? Of course Ibiza – it is known for its bohemian vibe, a way of life that Barbara and Sharon absolutely exude.
