The Life Aquatic

April 3rd, 2012 Posted by Janelle comments (15)

Aquatic references were a big part of what made the several recent collections magical. Think back to Chanel’s dreamy mermaid inspired S/S 12 collection, or the equally alluring scuba jackets from Balenciaga that season, even Donatella Versace went underwater for spring and though each designer was cribbing from the same source material, the ideas they created were wildly different. It is fascinating to see those Master stylist Lori Goldstein takes statement pieces from each collection and weaves them together to create a spectacular showcase for Saskia de Brauw in Patrick Demarchelier‘s atmospheric Vogue Japan story.

The Versace gown with strategically placed star fish, the embellished Max Kibardin shoes that look like coral, the plastic paillette covered Vuitton dress that glitters like a fish’s scales; every piece chosen works perfectly. Hats off to Goldstein for giving us this festive fashion fantasy. We’re not sure if mermaids actually go on holidays, but if they did this is probably would it would look like.
