Marc Jacobs, McCartney, and Ferragamo Have All Gone Fishin’

By

Fish and fashion may sound like strange bedfellows, but one look around the shops this season and there's no question the trend has (sea?) legs. Designers big and small have incorporated fish prints, fish patterns, and actual fish scales into shoes, handbags, umbrellas, necklaces, dresses, skirts, and more. Sometimes the finny influence is obvious (as with the Corvina fish-bone ring, at right, from Old Hollywood), and sometimes it's so deep underwater, it's almost undetectable without a submarine (Kill City's gritty racer-bank tank from Alter Brooklyn).
