Earlier this week, we identified mermaids as the new fashion-industry players to watch. Well, today more proof emerges in WWD. In conjunction with his next EP, pop star Mika is releasing a book with illustrations by fashion designers including Lanvin's Alber Elbaz. What did he choose to draw, of all the things in the world he could draw? As WWD puts it, "a colorful and glamorous mermaid." Just look at her! She has gloves and a bustier and what is possibly an Hermès Kelly bag. However, is that guy in the treasure chest dead or ogling her divine asymmetrical tail fins? [WWD]
