May | Secret Beaches & Hidden Bays 

We share the inspiration behind our latest collection.

16/05/24

The warming sands and sunlit sea call out for days at the coast. Follow overgrown paths to hidden coves, glimpsed tantalisingly through the clifftop campion and alexanders. 

It’s in these secret spots that we find inspiration for our prints and palette. Wave-carved rock forms inform bold patterns, while sea plants and dappled tidal pools add delicate touches. 

Loose linens and cool cottons lead the way to the beach, and knits add gentle warmth when the sun goes down. Where will May’s adventures take you? 

From the Sketchbook

Back in the studio, our designers draw on seashore finds to create swirling free-hand and painted patterns. 

I was inspired by fronds of seaweed seen floating on the shorelines and rockpools in Cornwall. I wanted the print to feel bold and contemporary, so I initially sketched the shapes and then painted them with gouache to give them a painterly texture.

Lucy, Seasalt Print Designer 

Rock formations and pebbles lead to large-scale prints, and naturally, our nautical stripes keep that classic seaside feel.  

The sand and ocean colours are calm and cool, like trailing your fingers through a rockpool on a warm May day. Rich oarweed, purple thrift and golden dune grasses inspire vibrant accents.

Now’s the time to lay out your summer wardrobe. Our new collection is characterised by clean silhouettes, flowing fabrics and relaxed fits that are a joy to combine. Play with colours, prints and textures, and experiment with layering as the summer unfurls. 

Our collection offers effortless dressing for summer. We’ve designed some great organic cotton essentials that you can layer throughout the long summer ahead

Laura, Chief Creative Officer 

Laura’s favourite outfit for summer starts with a versatile top. The linen-cotton Gwynver, brings easy-to wear colours together in its stripes. Pair with linen culottes or cotton twill shorts, matched with hues from the top’s generous palette. 

 

For summer celebrations, we return to that hidden beach for inspiration. 

Our great new seaweed print brings together all these abstract seaweed fronds in this palette of greens, lilacs and navies.

Style the Sky Beyond Dress in the Seaweed Frond print with the Arame jacket, which has this season’s boxy length. For a more relaxed feel, layer with a lilac cardigan to enhance those underwater pinks and purples. 

 

You’ll discover these beautiful pieces and prints in our New Collection. Enjoy exploring clean lines, clear summer colours, and marine and maritime prints.
