Dua Lipa made the case for some seriously fun fashion picks while hanging out with friends on a recent night out.
Posing for a pic, the Brit knew exactly what she was doing when she made a surprising revelation about her outfit. Composed of a cropped leather motorcycle jacket in lemon yellow with white inserts, and a matching mini skirt, the citrus-hued look was a show-stopper. But while it initially looked to be just another of the singer’s endless supply of designer looks, one photo revealed the unmistakable grin of Spongebob Squarepants embroidered on the back of the jacket.
Designed by Italian label GCDS, the Bikini Bottom native was a focus of the brand’s spring 2023 collection. Creative director Giuliano Calza incorporated motifs from the Nickelodeon show into clothing and accessories to viral success.
Lipa finished off the look with knee-high silver boots with a fangy heel—also from GCDS—and a diamond knuckleduster that (almost) stole the show.
This isn’t even the first time the singer has endorsed the porous protagonist or his gang of aquatic misfits.
In November of last year, she shared photos of herself in a dress still seared into our minds. Not one for the faint of heart, the dress featured a keyhole cutout and nipple pasties crocheted to the likeness of Patrick Star, the loveable starfish sidekick of Squarepants.
Then, in February, she took it casual with a Patrick Star emblazoned white hoodie worn under a pink leather trench coat.
As a close friend of Calza, the Service95 founder has long supported the designer’s work. She even posted a series of proud tributes—and snaps of her entirely sheer look—when attending his most recent show.
