Spring 2012 Is Going To Be Fishy

Oct 7, 2011 By Amy

I hope you can swim, because spring 2012 collections dived into the deep end with sea themed garments. Think mermaids, sea creatures, shells, and barnacles all re-imagined in high fashion form.

First there was Christian Siriano who said he was inspired by sea creatures, which is why his collection was full of bright hues and ruffles. Then Prabal Gurung showed some scuba material pieces in his daring collection.

However, these ended up being teasers for what was to come abroad when both Versace (left) and Chanel (right) showcased sea themed collections. Perhaps Donatella & Karl have been drinking from the same Kool-Aid? Versace debuted prints packed with sea shells and sea horses, while Chanel had a shell of a show thanks to an underwater inspired set.

Last, but certainly not least, Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen presented gowns which had a dark underwater influence filled with aquatic drama. Think barnacles showered with delicate lace and beaded accents.

So, who’s ready to go for a stylish swim?
