Classic inspirations blended with contemporary fabrics and design

Imagine the final vestiges of the fading summer sun gently blending into the sky as warm autumnal hues are cast across the sea. Small sailboats returning to moor framed by the setting sun, warm knits thrown on as the evening breeze begins to roll over the deck. Inspired by stylish seafarers our latest collection captures both the spirit of the sea and the romance of the late autumn evenings and translate onto a beach-ready wardrobe designed to help you navigate the cooler months.

The palette is enlivened by hazard orange which offers an energetic contrast across the collection. Cloud, ice and cinder are drawn from natural brushstrokes of light and clouds in the sky, the gentle marbling of the water and early morning mists. Alongside these soft accents the mystery of the sea is evoked with deep sea and petrol.

Strong geometric contrasts of the Fiya and tricolour Barthmann patterns bring further vitality to the range while the Ocean’s Edge photographic print captures a natural aquatic palette that inspired our colour block and dégradé Bulldogs.

Key standouts in the collection include the Addley sailing jacket—one of our most technical outerwear pieces to date, the versatile Nielson tee which combines a funnel neck and long sleeves in pure Merino wool and the Morton button-through shirt in piqué.This season we also championed waffle cotton across knits, shorts and sweatpants and also introduced super wools which feature finer, more tightly woven fibres with an exceptional finish.

West Wittering, Chichester, England

This quiet corner in the South of England has long been a favourite spot of ours. At low tide the beachfront stretches to a quarter mile and the calm water washes into a shallow lagoon across the sand. Bordered by tamarisk hedges and marram grass its natural beauty offers uninterrupted views of the Atlantic and a horizon pierced by glimpses of the French coast.

As lost pages from the chapters of summer drift into the cooler months this shoot was intended to celebrate the romance and revelry of these stolen days. The sand fresh underfoot, the water crisp but exhilarating.

It offers a sense of adventure, energy, and escapism—feelings that capture the spirit of this collection. It proved the perfect location to enjoy the final heady days of summer.

One cannot look at the sea without wishing for the wings of a swallow.
