Seasalt Cornwall Summer Collection 2013
In 1981, Don Chadwick bought an Army & Navy Store General Clothing in Penzance. This was the humble beginning of Seasalt now a successful fashion store selling clothes and accessories for both men and women. Seasalt is popular for beautiful and comfortable clothes made from Soil Association certified organic cotton. We take a look at this season's delectable collection.
The women's collection
This season, the theme of Seasalt is ‘Summer on Scilly’. The women’s spring summer 2013 collection draws inspiration from relaxing holidays spent on the Isles of Scilly. Picture bright boatmen smocks, floral and nautical prints for a gorgeous outfit. Get inspired by pretty summer dresses, sleeveless tops, printed linen jackets and denim skirts. It is a wonderful tribute to the island’s nautical heritage.
Take the beautiful Dahlia Print inspired by the lovely flowers that grow all over the island. There’s also a matching panel skirt and a mermaid dress. Enjoy shorts and cropped trousers for the warm months. Don on all cotton tops. Vests, short and long sleeves form part of the collection. What are also pretty for summer layering are warm gilets, jumpers, cardigans and ponchos in an array of bright colours. Sweatshirts and hoodies in uni colour or navy stripes are great for active days such as jogging or long walks along the beach. Get excited with the line of beautiful smocks for carefree days. Various pieces of lovely smocks in both linen and organic cotton are ideal for lounging or working around the garden. They are functional and practical.
What’s an outfit without stunning accessories? Seasalt makes printed and uni colour scarves ideal for dressing up your summer outfits. There are also unique neckerchiefs for the head and neck as well as luxurious shawls for an elegant look. Take a peek at the collection of practical jut bags, socks, handybands, belts and umbrellas. Body care products are also sold like the Box of Three Sailor Soaps and Sailors Lip Balm.
When it comes to footwear, you’ll find a delectable selection of leather pumps, wedges, deck shoes, and sling backs. Wellies and leather boots as well as gardening clogs are also available for the picking.
The men's line
