Have you noticed mushrooms dotted around everywhere right now?
I’m not talking on your plate, although there’s nothing wrong with that. I’ve started seeing the twee motif all over jewellery, sweatshirts, knits, PJs, even socks!
Luckily, it’s not just us. Global search platform Lyst included the cottagecore-inspired motif in their trend predictions for 2022, putting it down to Stella McCartney’s SS22 collection that features fungi.
Over the past three months, they report that interest in pieces containing the keyword “mushroom” have increased by 37%.
As well as McCartney, mushrooms have also been championed by designers including Marni, Sportsmax, JW Anderson and Alexa Chung. If it’s good enough for the it-girl herself, it’s good enough for us.
The high street has caught on quickly, with brands including Monki, ASOS and Urban Outfitters offering iterations of the mushroom trend too – and chances are, you’ve seen that Zara jumper all over Instagram.
Sadly the blue and green knit with a huge red mushroom from the high street brand has now sold out, but there’s plenty more where that came from.
It doesn’t have to be as bold as that either. You can add a touch of twee in the form of a single mushroom earring, or a patch on an oversized denim jacket.
