Morning Light - High Waist Cheongsam


Pastel washes were a recognisable trait in Agnes Martin's works. Large format pieces came alive in subtle glows and gentle serene swathes of colour. Here, we have worked a clay pink cotton oxford from Japan back into one of our best selling silhouettes from the CNY 2016 collection. With its distinctive high waist, generous gathers and attention to detail in the pearl button finishing and triple pleat hem detailing, this is truly a well-tailored occasion piece that can be worn beyond the new year season.

The Collection - "On A Clear Day"

Inspired by the works of minimalist artist Agnes Martin, the Sea Apple CNY 2017 collection features soft pastel washes and a focus on simplicity in form. Using only top quality fabrics from Liberty of London, Spain and Japan, the collection keeps to clean, architectural silhouettes and subtle detailing.


Agnes Martin (1912 - 2004) is a celebrated American abstract artist best known for her subtle and serene paintings of grids and stripes. Through these, she sought to capture the simple but powerful truths of existence - beauty, innocence and happiness.
