This season we teamed up with Royal Museums Greenwich to create another exciting collection inspired by their fantastic and unique heritage sites.
Royal Museums Greenwich is a top-10 UK visitor attraction and is home to the Royal Observatory, the Cutty Sark, the National Maritime Museum and the Queen's House.
With our shared passion for adventure and exploration, our common love of the sea and space, and our joint desire to protect the environment, we have designed eight fascinating new styles for you to choose from.
Read on to learn about the styles in our SS21 collection.
The Cutty Sark, HMS Endeavour, RSS Discovery, and HMS Victory are iconic maritime vessels. All launched between 1764 and 1901, they completed many remarkable ocean voyages. Our stand-out ship ahoy print features all four. Do you know which ship is which?
In 1768, the HMS Endeavour left Plymouth for the island of Tahiti in the South Pacific Ocean, under the command of James Cook. What was believed to be a voyage to observe the transit of Venus also entailed a secret mission to search for an unknown landmass before their rivals, Terra Australis Incognita.
After sailing around New Zealand and charting the coast, Cook and his crew found that it was not part of a larger southern continent and so continued their voyage to the east coast of Australia where they anchored in Botany Bay.
HMS Victory is best known for serving as Lord Nelson's flagship in his victory at the Battle of Trafalgar on 21 October 1805, before he was brought back to England and buried at St Paul's Cathedral.
Over 2,000 oak trees were used just to construct the hull of this magnificent ship - that's equal to 60 acres of forest!
The Cutty Sark, built in 1869, was the fastest ship of its time and was designed to carry tea from China to England. On its first voyage, the Cutty Sark brought back over 500 tonnes of tea!
In 1901, Captain Robert Falcon Scott led his first expedition to the Antarctic in the specially built ship, Discovery. During their National Antarctic Expedition, Scott, Shackleton and Wilson got within 410 miles of the South Pole before they were forced to turn back due to sub-zero conditions and poor health, and return to their base at RSS Discovery.
You can find our Ship ahoy print on a hat, bib, sleepsuit and bodysuit. These versatile styles, great for boys and girls alike, are all super soft and made from 100% organic cotton. Pair the bodysuit with our Cutty Sark knit leggings for a comfy and cool everyday look.
The four ships also feature on our popular Ship ahoy t-shirt. Informative and stylish, this navy tee is the perfect addition to your little one’s wardrobe.
Shepherd Gate Clock
Did you know that the Shepherd Gate Clock was the first clock to show Greenwich Mean Time to the public?
Constructed by Charles Shepherd in 1852, it is distinctively split into 24 hours and was an integral part of standardising time, needed for the arrival of the railway. The Shepherd Gate Clock can still be seen today at the gates of the Royal Observatory.
Our gorgeous cream slub t-shirt tells the story of the clock beautifully, and you can also spot a rather cute woodpecker and thrush, two bird species that are known to breed in Greenwich Park.
It looks great paired with any of our leggings for ultimate style and features a coconut button shoulder opening up to and including 3 years.
Containing an abundance of rich history, ancient trees and unforgettable attractions, London's Greenwich is a treasure to visit with so much to discover.
Our Greenwich t-shirt celebrates this wonderful location and its position amongst other iconic landmarks. You can find the National Maritime Museum, the Queen's House, London's famous red buses and more!
