Spring is here, Summer is well on the way and with many heading to the seaside (or even sailing), the arrival of Danish designer By Malene Birger’s latest collection couldn’t be more timely. It’s a fun take on a trusted trend featuring stripes, anchor motifs and cobalt blues.

Malene Birger is known for creating modern pieces that scream cool and her latest collection is no exception – here are three of our picks and how we’d wear them. Whether sailing the high seas or simply dreaming of St Tropez…

Malene Birger Anchor Jumpsuit Samantha Ogilvie

1. The Anchor Jump Suit… A cool lunchtime look, particularly when at the coast. We’d offset the print with a bright clutch and keep the footwear simple. Either a fine slide, or a wedge if adding height.

Malene Birger Cobalt Sheer Top Samantha Ogilvie

2. The Cobalt Top… It’s a stunning shade, and we love the sheer t-shirt laid over the singlet base. Perfect for pool-side cocktails, with a slick evening pant, metallic heel and statement earrings.

3. The Anchor Tee… You could keep it simple and work back with your favourite blue denim jeans or really play up the nautical nature and layer under the printed anchor jacket or pants. Your call, captain!
