SUNKISSED SALTY & SERENE!
If your soul is bohemian, free and gypsy wild. Come swim in the calming sea and be mermaids for a while, each season, we come upon new sources of inspiration that not only result in intriguing silhouettes but also surface innovations. Making is an example of inspiration. When Mermaidcore, which combines the terms “mermaid” and “normcore,” is the most recent fad that designers have adopted. Fashion’s desire for a different world in these uncertain times caused by the coronavirus is evident. Without much certainty regarding the future, it is simpler to suffocate in the depths of the ocean, where there is a diverse array of flora and fauna in addition to peace and strength. This aquatic-inspired style is fueled in part by a rise in interest in sustainability and ecology. All different types of mermaids were featured in the Spring/Summer 2021 collections. With Kendall Jenner, Precious Lee, and Hailey Bieber gracing the cover of Versace’s spring 2021 advertising campaign alongside a sea of jellyfish, the campaign stands out. The process of surface manipulation was used to translate components inspired by the ocean into collections. Whether it’s through patchworked coral and seashell patterns on black mesh pants and shifts, fish and sea urchin prints on sheer trench coats and asymmetric shifts, or clams appliquéd on a chiffon top and full-sleeve ivory dress. The dreamy aesthetics of the water were replicated using crocheted waves and knit sea motif designs. For instance, 3D corals and sea urchins embroidered on the bracelet-skirt combination at Fusto Puglisi showed different ways the sea could be brought to life in the world of fashion. The coral red sequined shift at Pucci was worn under a longer off-white lace dress.
