Sperry Top-Sider deck shoes have been a favourite since 1935 when Paul Sperry, inspired by the pattern of cracks in his dog Prince’s paws and his ability to run nimbly over the ice and snow, used a pen knife to cut into the rubber outer sole of a trainer. As a keen sailor Paul used these new shoe soles to avoid slipping on the wet deck of his boat and so a classic was born!
This season we’ve got some gorgeous new leather belts in the collection, handmade in the UK from gorgeous Italian leather. And with pretty little buckles and funky colours they look great with any dress, tunic or jeans. We took a few sneaky snaps of our lovely office and shop ladies who have been showing us how to wear them.

Our window dressers have been at it again, creating more beautiful displays for us to marvel at. Here is some of their hard work, though if you’re local why not take a stroll past..
To celebrate the launch of our beautiful new limited edition Artists & Potters collection three Seasalt shops will be holding an exclusive one night only shopping evening.
This Saturday at the flagship John Lewis store on London’s Oxford Street Seasalt are launching our brand new and limited edition collection ‘Artists and Potters’.
Being hungry, on telly and a man seems to be a bit of a trending topic at the moment, what with Hugh’s boys and Dick Strawbridge hitting the screen at the same time. Lucky for us, they all took a bit of a jaunt through our beautiful piece of the world, all sporting some of our famous stripes.

We are always more than happy to hear from fans who tell us of there favourite Seasalt clothing, how they enjoy them and equally how well travelled they are. Occasionally though we discover our clothes enjoying a new found use when they are no longer being worn, though this of course is after a long and loyal life!
It’s hard not to notice that the festival season has well and truly kicked off, especially with all the buzz and excitement around this year’s Glastonbury festival.
As well as enjoying all the live music and fun-loving atmosphere, we also delight in the fact that it’s just another reason to wear our favourite Seasalt wellies! With the ever growing popularity of music festivals teamed with the unpredictable British weather, it is no wonder that wellies have made a come back in recent years as a bit of a fashion accessory.
We think our lovely range of bold & bright natural rubber wellies are the perfect fashion statement! But don’t just take our word for it, Grazia think so too….yes our wonderful Seasalt wellies feature on their website Graziadaily.co.uk in a fabulous article about ‘Ethical Festival Fashion’ – Take a look here!
The weatherman is predicting rain for the next few days. It’s not exactly the best weather for this time of year, but then again, we were spoilt a little with the sunshine in April & May – it’s got to be expected, it is Britain after all!
As we’re always ones to look at the glass ‘half full’ here at Seasalt, we say enjoy the rain! Why not take the time to get all your odd jobs done ready for the summer; or defy the bad weather and get dressed up in your favourite Seasalt raincoat and wellies and go outside anyway! Think along the lines of Gene Kelly’s ’Dancing in the Rain’!
But if you haven’t got a good raincoat, look no further! Our waterproofs are completely weather proof and have stood the test against the horizontal rain and the howling winds often experienced upon the clifftops here in Cornwall. Plus…we have a fantastic range of raincoats in lovely bold & bright colours so you’ll look super stylish too.
So, enjoy the rain for now and lets just hope the sun comes back to visit soon!

We were so excited last week to welcome the Kaiser Chiefs to Falmouth! The band played two intimate gigs to a small but lively audience at the Princess Pavilions in Falmouth, their first live performances for two years.
Many of the Seasalt team were able to get tickets and we were not disappointed! It was a fabulous show with a mix of their fab new material as well as the classic oldies such as ‘Ruby’ and ‘I predict a Riot’!
Lead singer, Ricky Wilson, is a friend of Seasalt and as a present we gave him some of Seasalt’s lovely bamboo Sailor Socks as a memento of his visit. According to his girlfriend, Lesley, they are now his favourite stage socks and you can see him wearing them loud and proud in this photo from a recent radio interview!
The Kaiser Chiefs have just released their 4th album, The Future Is Medieval and they are also pioneering a more initiative and interactive way for fans to purchase albums.
From the Kaiser Chiefs’ website, fans are able to create their own album by selecting 10 tracks from a selection of 20, along with choosing their preferred album cover from a selection of artwork, to create a customised album. But if you’re stuck for inspiration, fans are also able to choose from a selection of albums previously created by others and the original creator receives £1 for each of their copies sold/downloaded! This genius system allows fans to potentially earn money if they promote their personal Kaiser Chiefs album creation to their friends!
The band will also be playing gigs and festivals across Europe this summer as well as, no doubt, making a storming return at the Glastonbury festival.
AND…if you spot Ricky wearing our stripy Sailor Socks at a gig this summer, take a photo and let us know!
