CATCHING THE NEXT WAVE

Over the past six months, A-Gent of Style started noticing around him the ancient Asian pattern of the wave and also fish scales. Suddenly, these two scalloped designs seem to appear everywhere before him and A-Gent soon realised they were ubiquitous – in shops or restaurants,  in the streets, in fashion, design and home magazines, online of course and many other appearances. What turned into a game of ‘spot-the-pretty-fish-scales-pattern’ almost ended up in an obsession and even hallucinations.

This is a compilation of all the images and photographs A-Gent of Style has accumulated featuring waves and fish scales in all their various shapes and representations. Now, you too might start noticing them everywhere.
Will you catch the bug!?

Finally, a shelf at home with some of A-Gent of Style‘s favourite packaging.
Not strictly waves or fish scales, more of an (Art Deco) fan shape this time
but that’s another blog post!
