Two words: Fish skin.

Not just yummy in sushi rolls, but on shoes and accessories as well :)

Had a feeling about it a few weeks ago, like, what's going to be the next snake or snake-embossed leather? Then when looking around for shoes a couple weeks or so ago, found these adorable and super affordable Steven by Steve Madden pumps... thought these were cool but did not think too much of it...

Rampid pump, $64.99 on Steve Madden, $67.98 on Amazon, and $93.47 on Endless.

Only to see the same texture again tonight on Moda Operandi, on Alexander Wang's Resort 2012 Aida pumps and and Fumo wristlets (also used on the Quillon wallets- which, for some strange reason, are not for pre-sale in this trunk show). Which brand used it first, I don't know. Doesn't matter- when my boy Alex utilizes a material, you know what that means... that's right- it's going to be huge, even if he isn't the first to have used it. While these fish skin shoes and accessories were not featured in the lookbook released back in mid-June (click to view), they totally compliment his first swimwear line and scuba/wetsuit-inspired dresses. Especially this one. It's all about water for Resort 2012.
