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

Look (UK) - - LIFE -

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.
