She sells sea-shells by the sea-shore...
While botanicals and soft hues will have a big presence in summer 2018, one of the main focuses will be on the beautiful, shiny, iridescent world of seashells in all their natural glory. Pearls, coral and shells heavily influenced the catwalks during the ss18 shows, whether worn as subtle hints of glimmer at Zimmerman or a bejewelled, more-is-more-type shell-covered head-pieces at Dolce&Gabanna (see gallery above).
If you're eager to indulge in the offerings of the sea before the trend fully erupts, then this delicate bracelet from Isabel Marant, below, should offer some anxiety respite. Or, how funky are the Miu Miu silver-tone pearl earrings?

So forget florals, this summer we're going down under the sea for inspiration.
