Who’s Your Lobster?
You’re probably looking for a bank holiday treat for your BFF, aren’t you? No? OK, well just treat yourself, then. Either way, the only motif on the menu right now is anything lobster related
On writing this page, we did a bit of research on lobsters. Let’s just say they’re pretty weird. And we’re not sure that they do indeed mate for life, or even have friends, given that they’re actually quite aggressive. But let’s pretend for a moment that Phoebe Buffay is, in fact, correct and lobsters are the picture of true love. That would explain the feelings we’re having for these new buys, which are all about the ocean-dwelling fellas, splashed across beautiful accessories and kitsch tees.
From Mango’s top-handle bag and embellished slippers to Kurt Geiger’s irresistible mules, it seems lobsters are fashion’s dish du jour. And OK, so Anthropologie’s clutch may be a shrimp, not a lobster, but we don’t like to discriminate. Whether you and your own lobster (platonic or otherwise) buy matching crustacean loot or you keep this trend to yourself, it’s already been featured on the Gucci catwalk and some of our favourite street-style stars. That’s why we just had to share it with you – you can’t call us shellfish. Sorry.
