As I mentioned in my previous post, lobsters have a special meaning to me. It is kind of a joke, but it is also an endearing symbol. Eliot writes "I should have been a pair of ragged claws/scuttling across the floors of silent seas" in The Love Song of J Alfred Prufrock. I have always appreciated this image of the two lobsters walking together, as Prufrock struggles to find the meaning of a love that is more than just physical.
But I would never have thought of wearing that symbol in way that was the right amount of poetic. That is, until Tibi debuted their new looks. I was delighted to find the large lobster prints on silks and shifts. The gray sweatshirt is my favorite. It might just be a birthday/Christmas gift to myself, representing my love for fashion, poetry, and my partner in life. Had to share these playful looks with you.
