Under the sea

Spring 12

Trend summary

A new aquatic trend splashed down for spring 12. Floaty textiles, shimmering finishes and glistening embellishment were key, while undulating details and ruched fabrics created an impression of ocean waves. Underwater seascapes stood out on prints and patterns.

How to buy it

Aquatic-themed prints and patterns is an easy way to buy into the trend. Fun seahorse and mermaid prints will appeal to the youth market while a watery palette, shiny fabrics and embellishment offer a more subtle approach.
