Create your own underwater odyssey with this season’s oceanic obsessions. Thanks to certain designers championing all things sea life, spring summer 2012 offered super-desirable, and highly wearable underwater inspired creations.

Think Ariel Mermaid metallic, bright Nemo references and even the deep sea ice coolness of Jaws, as designers including Mary Katrantzou, Chanel and Versace introduced us to the fashion above sea-level.

The conch shell clutch and fish gill-like qualities at Chanel had us dizzy, while Mary Katrantzou’s pixelated fish swimming across taffeta cocktail dresses made us want to dive into the delectable digi-prints. Stella McCartney’s ocean wave-edged printed jackets and slip dresses made us want to unashamedly surf on our aquatic high.
