Wondering what to wear on the water? Dress to impress in this Emilia Wickstead piece

An ode to the Southern Seas, Emilia Wickstead’s latest collection was inspired by the designer’s Samoan/New Zealand roots. After discovering The Faery Lands of the South Seas (a non-fiction book from the 1920s) on her daughter’s shelf, Wickstead sought to evoke the idea of journeys across the seas, creating a beautiful, illustrated sailboat print that was splashed across cotton poplin skirts, cropped shirts and dresses.

Luckily for us, one such dress has just landed at Simon James, making our decisions around what to wear for a day on the water, much easier. Paying subtle homage to the sailing, while still feeling simple and sophisticated, this printed dress is the perfect boat-day piece.
