Sea shells are no longer the sole property of hyper-colorful 90’s babies with mermaid fetishes. Shells have officially bridged the gap to a more sophisticated customer base. I have a feeling the reason we’re seeing so many shells make the leap has everything to do with their widespread use in flat lays along side other contemporary symbols of effortless cool like the pomegranate and the grapefruit. Whatever the reason is, I’m on board. Give me golden sea shells and abalone all day, I’ll pair them with a silk slip dress and a kimono, and you probably should too.
