Introducing Coco de Mer Collection - Summer 17/18

Coco de Mer by Coco + Ginger

Inspired by the giant coconuts and thick jungles of Africa’s Seychelles, Coco & Ginger’s Coco de Mer collection suggests adventure aplenty. Here, starry tropical evenings under big skies are spent listening to the waves crash ashore, as women hone their fine embroidery skills around coral circles of driftwood fires. Gardenia blossoms gently scent the air and we imagine the pirates skulking in and out of the coves of deserted islands, scattered here like so many jewels across the ocean. Perhaps one day we will be brave enough to follow the ancient Spice Route over the Indian Ocean, a journey stretching from Africa towards the Orient of yesteryear, and then across the Pacific to Tahiti, where still more impossible beauty awaits.

The prints in the Coco de Mer collection feature waterlilies and playful chains of blossoms. Shades are sea glass, eggshell blue, periwinkle and sea-shell pastels; the look is pretty and windswept, light and whimsical. One-piece jumpsuits are fun and adventure-ready, while dresses and skirts are twirl-able, naturally. Perhaps team our sonnet blouse with our sailor shorts before embarking to the seas; pack our poet playsuit for magical capers on arrival.

Coco & Ginger is a small Bali-based business named for designer Saffron Pugh-Blabys’s daughters, now aged ten and 17. Saffron moved to Indonesia’s Bali with her chef husband in 2002, where she was inspired to launch her own socially responsible enterprise. Today the family company creates girls’ clothes with the help of a collective of women who also craft exquisite hand-stitched items.

2017 saw an exciting development with the introduction of New Zealand distributor, Luxe Lifestyle Collective Limited T/A Coco + Ginger New Zealand. Our collection will now be available locally each Summer within New Zealand.
