Mermaids are being plucked from the depths of mythology, from the pages of fairytales and legends, and transported to the present day. Across the world of fashion sequins, paillettes, pearls and metallics are being interpreted with an underwater theme, and our romance with the beauty of the sea creature has really only just begun.
Photographer Patricia Imbarus offers up her interpretation of the season’s oceanic undercurrent. Martyna Ziemska is the seductive mermaid, transposed to an urban setting. Forget the open sea and crashing waves; Ziemska has found her home in a bathtub, beautifully styled by Annalisa Frob Arcando.
Shimmering bronze eyeshadow and soft coral lips by Sanda Chercheja complete the mermaid transformation.
