Art Gallery Nautical revitalizes nautical themes with a fresh modernist feel, Sketchbook Scribbles offers a contemporary take on handcrafting with freehand monochrome graphics while From The Retro Archives takes inspiration from times past with a re-imagining of retro originals.

Sketchbook Scribble

Hand drawn scribbles, urban graphics and illustrative effects in monochrome color-ways add an artistic license to apparel and accessories.
  • Intricate linear patters have a clean urban graphic appeal. 
  • Stitchwork and contrast threads introduce a handcrafted element. 
  • Matching patterned accessories create all-over print looks.

Nautical themes get an update with an art gallery inspired aesthetic as modernist influences reenergize maritime motifs and classic color-ways.

  • Regatta stripes are reconfigured and repositioned for a fresh look. 
  • Bold blocking and proportional play update classic prints. 
  • Sportswear fabrics enhance the modernist mood.

From The Retro Archives

Womenswear explores the archives as Seventies inspired geometric prints and abstract patterns come in original retro color-ways.
  • Tan, brown, orange and yellow tones echo the original 1970s palette.
  • Abstract geos and asymmetric paneling refresh blocking techniques.
  • Bold accent stripes contrast with solid colors for a bold vintage vibe.
