Aquatic and majestic, the spring shows make a nod to majestic creatures of the sea

Wet, shimmering, body revealing draping fabrics, sequins and sheer. It should be no surprise with one of this year’s most anticipated blockbusters, Disney’s The Little Mermaid live action, having been in the works for the past few years, with a spring 2023 debut. We’ve seen the influence of the siren aesthetic delicately interpreted in the spring shows, from the literal like Moschino’s campy dolphin dress and Bluemarine’s shell bralette, to suggestive textures from Ludovic de Saint Sernin and Dilara Findikoglu. We’ve also see these looks styled with flowing “wet look” wavy locks that look painted on by Botticelli, which completely solidifies the mermaid inspiration.
