Ryan Lo SS15

A sparkly, sequinned 'Sex and the City' inspired mermaid beach party – set to the sounds of Cyndi Lauper and the Spice Girls

Initial reaction:

The Carrie Diaries. "It's Carrie in Abu Dhabi, Carrie in the city, Carrie at a nightclub," Ryan Lo said about the Carrie Bradshaw-inspired characters at his defiantly girly, teen disco mermaid beach party. “What I love about Sex and the City is that it’s kind of cheesy, tacky and cliché,” he noted.

Girls just wanna have fun:

The soundtrack was made up of Lo's studio playlist (Blondie, the Spice Girls), and as Cyndi Lauper’s "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" came on, it felt like a header not only for the glittery, sugary-coloured collection, but also for much of LFW SS15, where good time-frocks and pretty surface embellishment have been major focal points.

Better down where it’s wetter:

In their seashell-shaped crochet bustiers and wave-hemmed skirts, the girls looked like tropical beach prom princess versions of Ariel and her gang, complete with sequinned octopus dresses and sparkly starfish headpieces.
