Style Inspired By The Sea

April 16, 2012

Nautical Luxuries doesn't carry designer women's apparel, but we certainly do appreciate great coastal/nautical design - wherever it comes from. Quite often, the new design trends introduced in the fashion world, will later be echoed in the home decor and accessories arena. So, we were very intrigued to see that at this spring's Milan Fashion Week, Donatella Versace presented Versace's Spring 2012 Collection, beautifully inspired, ... by the sea! It might just inspire you to attend the America's Cup World Series events this June in Newport Rhode Island, covered in sparkling starfish and beaded seahorses, or pastel seashells and mermaids.             Don't forget the matching shoes and bag!  Now THAT's boating in heels!   I was hoping that long time America's Cup sponsors Prada and Louis Vuitton would also offer something wonderfully coastal or nautically inspired. Alas, Prada's spring line features retro flaming hotrods, and Louis Vuitton's collection, in ultra-feminine sheer pastels, was like diving into a big fluffy bowl of wedding cake frosting.  While neither appeared to be inspired by anything on or near the sea, both are stunning collections and will likely be spotted at the evening balls held at the fabulous waterside mansions in Newport. Here's to the glamour and style of America's Cup and to life inspired by the sea! DJ
