Shop The Mag: Under The Sea Inspired Fashion

Look to the ocean's depths when channelling this mermaid-inspired shoot – lobster optional.

We’ve taken inspiration from the deep for our August fashion shoot, where our beautiful model Lauryn got to grips with some fairly tough creatures and the seagulls, for once, were nice and cooperative.

Channelling this theme IRL might be a little more difficult (although a lobster clutch bag isn’t the worst idea we’ve ever had) – if you’re stuck, think about texture as a way around the look. That’ll be anything shiny, shimmery or eye-catching – and look out for fishnet-alike mesh fabrics, which are huge this A/W.
