That time of year is fast approaching – the jingle bells are most definitely jingling! As a little Christmas gift from us to you, here’s a sneak peek of what went on behind the scenes of our Christmas catalogue shoot way back in the summer…
When it comes to location shoots we are very lucky here at Seasalt, being given the opportunity to shoot at a number of different locations around our beautiful home county of Cornwall. This was no exception when it came to our Christmas catalogue, we were fortunate enough to shoot at the gorgeous Garden Wings cottage in the tiny hamlet of Mawnan. Read the rest of this entry »
As the nights draw in and temperature drop it’s clear that winter is just around the corner. This season’s new wardrobe staple has to be the patterned knit. Make your patterns pop by layering with basics for that perfect winter daytime look. With a selection on patterns from birds to bright fair isles and even more traditional styles, there truly is something for everyone!
The Matilda Cardigan in Bird Herringbone Granite features a bright striped bird pattern inspired by the wealth of cornish birds surrounding us. Layer this lovely jacquard knit cardigan with basic tops and pair with our Galatea Jeans and Trefusis Boots for the perfect day look. To keep those winter chills away, finish this look with the juicy colours of our Fishing Net Scarf and Mittens.
Our Matilda Cardigan in Penwith Jacquard Tobacco was inspired by Cornish townscapes. Try layering this cardigan with our Thrifty Top in Silver and Eden skirt for a Weekend Look. This Look is topped off perfectly with our Wishing Well Scarf and Trefusis Boots to keep you warm.
This lovely fair isle long length Hazelnut Cardigan is perfect for dressing up or down. Layer with our Thrifty Top in Beetroot and Galatea Jeans topped off with the warming colours from our Lobster Pot Snood and Mittens which were inspired by the fishing culture that surrounds Mevagissey.
If you are looking for something a bit brighter how about trying the Penvoer Cardigan in Eddystone Cadet. This juicy striped fair isle knit will really bring a pop to your outfit. Layer with our High Clere Top in Slate and Galatea Jeans and accessories with our beautiful wool/silk mix Hallane Scarf for added warmth and colour.
For a more muted fair isle knit the Penvoeor Cardgian in Folk Bilberry features the traditional snowflakes pattern. This lovely purple knit works perfectly with chambray such as the Duchy Skirt and layered with basics such as the Thrifty Top in Orca. Why not try a knitted Flower Headband to keep your ears away from that bitter winter wind and some wollen gloves or mittens such as the Ascot Cable Mittens for that perfect casual day look.
With the arrival of the new Seasalt AW13 catalogue, here’s a sneak preview behind the scenes at our Mevagissey location shoot.
Sara from Design is dressed head to toe in Seasalt today and showing us all how to layer for Autumn! As the summer air feels ever more distant keeping snug and warm is becoming a priority when getting dressed on the dreary mornings. Sara has teamed the versatile pleated Wallflower Skirt in Salmon with our staple long sleeved Sailor Shirt to keep her warm without the fuss of another layer. Along with her Sea-Legs Leggings and Trefusis Boots keeping her cozy she certainly wont be feeling the chill!
What great way to wear your favorite skirt throughout the season and we think she looks fabulous! How are you wearing your Seasalt this autumn?
Inspired as we are by beautiful blooms, and with Heligan Gardens as inspiration, it’s no surprise that our Autumn Winter Collection is filled with lots of fabulous floral prints, including the Camellia Sage print.
There are more than 70 different species of camellias at Heligan Gardens, a collection that began around 1850, and when the gardens ran wild in the 20th Century many plants flourished unrestrained into the magnificent specimens which you see today. In 2008 Heligan was granted National Collection Holder status by Plant Heritage for its historic and unique camellia collection and whether they’re forming backdrops to the walled garden or taking centre stage the breath taking beauty of these ancient specimens is awe-inspiring.
Our Silk Square was a new product for Spring/Summer Collection and has proved a hit amongst Seasalters as an easy adaptable accessory that adds a touch of glamour to any outfit. With so many different ways of wearing it we spoke to some of its biggest fans and asked how they like to wear theirs.
Lottie from Buying uses her silk square as a beautiful bow headscarf teamed with the Pippa Dress for a fun summer retro look.
Zephyrine from Tech uses her scarf as a bright and quirky belt!
Wina from Graphic Design likes to throws hers over she shoulders to add a drop of colour to outfits, from jeans and a tshirt to a dress in the evening.
Hannah from Online Marketing likes to tie hers to her bag for a simple addition of nautical glamour to her outfit.
