Most designers have dived in the aquatic trend (aka sea trend) searching for inspiration among seahorses, corals, sea urchins, and seashells. A very special place was prepared for oysters which produce pearls. It was Chanel’s catwalk, entirely sea-themed. The heavy use of mother-of-pearl shimmer, and dotted pearls through the models’ slicked-back hair was just the beginning. As a part of the show, Florence Welch arose like Botticelli’s Venus on the giant mock shell to complete the underwater theme with a divine song.

Sea fashion: Chanel, Peter Pilotto, Versace, Givenchy

Aquatic influences were prevalent in many other Spring 2012 fashion shows. Supremely subtle underwater prints emerged in Versace in Milan, before Sarah Burton presented her Alexander McQueen coral-inspired gowns in London. There was a special hint of sea sparkle thanks to sequined paillette tuxedos from Givenchy that looked as if they were made of fish scales. Dresses and pants would shimmer with the luminous glow of mother-of-pearl in Giorgio Armani. The most imaginary aquatic prints were presented by Peter Pilotto. Who would think the artful distortion would give an underwater effect, making it appear as if seen through a snorkel mask? Gosh, who wouldn’t sea fashion!
