So why mushrooms, and why now? Well, they have a fun, wonky, and magical look. I first noticed those sweet toadstools thanks to the jewelry label Beepy Bella by New York–based artist Isabella Lalonde. Her brand is self-described as: “With a prominent focus on ethereal creatures, fairy tales, and magical symbolism, Beepy Bella bridges the Black cat Santa claws Christmas shirt gap between adulthood and childhood.” In the mix of plump-gnomes charms and strawberries necklaces, Lalonde’s love for splendid mycelium shows as glass mushrooms with red flat-top heads and necklaces are plopped with green shrooms. The vibe-tastic pieces remind me of the Grateful Dead–inspired label Online Ceramics. On its site, the brand shows a happy-go-lucky fungi-themed T-shirt that reads “Hunt Mushrooms Not Animals.” Beyond Online Ceramics, a quick browse of mushroom clothes on Google brings me to an array of the spore-focused clothing. Fast fashion label Romwe shows psychedelic mushrooms with wonky heads. Doll’s Kill has a tank with the same style graphic. It girl–centric Staud gives us a shroom-centric crop top. The least groovy of the bunch is by Alastair Mackie, who offers a shirt with a visual Victorian-era glossary of mushroom types.
