Who could have guessed that the world would become so enamored with sushi that designers would take this signature fish dish as inspiration to create sushi fashion? Well, it's happening sushi lovers! Sushi-inspired fashion has hit it big with huge designer names in the sartorial-based industry falling for this trend hook, line, and sinker.
Issey Miyake has added the cutest sushi bento set to its Pleats Please line, which is actually the most adorable set of accessories imaginable. The entire sushi-inspired set hosts items that, at first glance, appear to be a much loved piece of sushi (such as egg nigiri), which then unfurl to reveal a functional item such as a purse. My favorite pieces are the cucumber roll, which transforms into a pleated band, and the sea urchin maki sushi, which evolves like a Pokémon into a drawstring bag.
This seafood snack has even made its way onto the nails of celebs. Georgia May Jagger got her nails done by Marian Newman and went for a really cool sushi-inspired nail design. About a year ago, The Independent dubbed sushi nails as a hot beauty trend in Japan's social media, and it's easy to see why. Any foodie would start drooling at the mouth for these adorable nails.
