Maritime Style

Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket? Ralph or Lily Pulitzer? Nautical style often conjures cliche Americana pastimes that devolve into a puddle of preppy pastiche. I love stripes, I love boats and I can tie a mean cleat hitch but I personally prefer water world expressions that are more relaxed than typical yacht club dress codes.

The October editorial in Harper's Bazaar Spain does a nice job representing this aesthetic. I also like that this shoot appears in a Fall book rather than in a high-Summer one, which creates an unfussy and cooler aesthetic.

Most of the pictures are of knitwear looks but check out the entire spread for some other great images. And I wish I could cite the designers of these pieces but more often than not, the online imagery from magazines is presented without the credits. When and if I find them I will update.
