let’s pretend we’re surfing


This season is highly influenced by sports wear. And what better sport to draw inspiration from for a summer wardrobe than surfing? We saw how Givenchy interpreted the surfer for their S/S ’12 collection – shark tooth necklaces, shark skin for leather, underwater colors, a cool attitude. All in all monochrome outfits which looked amazing. But I’m also loving all the fun tropical prints that are popping up here and there (ASOS for instance, they call it the Waikiki Trend) and using neoprene for skirts instead of wet suits is brilliant.
Who doesn’t admire surfers? They seem to have no care in the world, they’re adventurous and cool. Good if we city gals can at least look a bit more like them.
