We were going to call this post something ever so witty like "Ahoy there, matey" or "Hello, sailor" but in the end we couldn't quite bring ourselves to. Regardless, nautical is still a big trend for SS09 (it's one of those trends that seems to go on and on), although this time round designers have taken it a step further than stripey tops and gold buttons, by interpreting all things to do with boats and the sea quite literally through bold prints and details.
