With a title like ‘Mermaids Exist : as above/so below‘, I had no chance against the magic of Gail Sorronda’s SS14/15 show. Most of us know she’s great with black and white and once again with the sheer textures, layering and crowns, black and white shone through.
Prim, proper and pleated, the details in the neckline and sleeves could have been the thing of dowdy dreams. Fortunately these floaty silhouettes were a perfect throwback, much like the monochromatic gingham, a classic I will always adore.
At this point you might be wondering where the more obvious mermaids might be hiding and I didn’t have to look long to find them. Ariel, the little mermaid had her fin in quite a few pieces swimming and twirling on caped body-con and shift dressed. It was then that I was, as poker players would put it, ALL IN!
In fact, sign me up for more mermaids keeping their tails and strutting down the runway like a good Disney story. Gail’s consistent contributions make it easy to look forward and wonder what’s next? Unicorns please.
