The Seafaring Dress in Admiral Print is partly inspired by 1940s preppy tea dresses and is combined with our Admiral print featuring symbols of sea mythology and superstition.
Made from 100% tufted cotton jacquard printed in antique cream and rust. Lined in 100% cotton.
This Autumn Winter Collection aims to encapsulate the wild, unpredictable, unwavering force of the sea and all of its mysteries. Tales of sirens and sea beasts infiltrate the soft feminine silhouettes through hand painted prints and embroideries. Shapes are formed from sea captain’s uniforms and contrasted with willowy ethereal shapes that drift eerily through the oceans waves. Prints feature precious keepsakes and lucky charms for safety on long voyages, alongside omens and sirens luring sailors to their fate.
“Thus on Life’s lonely Sea.
Heareth the marinere,
Voices sad, from Far and Near,
Ever singing, full of Fear,
Ever singing, Drearfully.”
