It’s officially the summer season. Although we’re blessed (or cursed) with a high-temperature sun all year round, this is the period where global fashion takes a turn for shedding layers. And as much as we love the cheeky bikini-mistaken tops and frilly boho-chic dresses, we can’t deny that pool slides are having their big moment — and we’re talking beyond pool area, folks.
The look — first made popular by Adidas — re-entered the scene in a major way a few seasons back. And while they’ve undoubtedly been around since then, it seems they’re hitting the fashion scene in full force as of late. Street style favourites like Gigi and Bella Hadid, to Eva Chen and Leandra Medine have been seen out and about in them slides. Fashion’s biggest houses have also jumped on the bandwagon with Gucci’s rendition winning our ‘most favourite’ award with a viral DIY how-to remake for those on a budget.
