A stroll along the seafront in a vintage inspired crumpled linen coat
A few days spent relaxing in Weymouth makes me want to celebrate the unusual joys of the British seaside. It is a resort defined by the great sweeping curve of its Georgian seafront and the stunning view of the Jurassic cliffs in the distance. As a young child I fell in love with Lulworth and have returned regularly to this section of the Dorset coastline at all times of the year to find it a continuing source of inspiration and creativity. It was here that I began to design my coats, rejecting fleeces and windcheaters in neutral colours and sensible shades of blue, in favour of crumpled linens in shell pink, vivid violet or carmine red.
