New Dawn New Dawn

With a nod to the 70’s, New Dawn is a ‘nouvea retro’ collection influenced by the raw and textural beauty found in Sarah’s local surroundings. The sun kissed and earthy colour palette is inspired by break of dawn walks to the beach to watch the sunrise. As the sun peaks over the horizon, and darkness transitions to daylight we a reminded of the hope each new day brings. This versatile pattern collection seeks to brighten each day, whether it’s swaddling a little one in sunshine or being drapped in the colours of dawn.
