Porthcressa Vest | Natural History Museum

With a strappy racer back, a subtle gathered neck and made from 100% organic cotton, the Porthcressa vest is perfect for long summer days. In collaboration with the Natural History Museum, we’ve hand-selected illustrations from the pioneering work of 17th century naturalist Maria Sibylla Merian to create a unique all-over print.

A German-born naturalist and scientific illustrator, Maria travelled the world’s oceans observing insects and flora. For more information about her life and work, read the full story over on the Broadcast.

Gorgeous but too long for me

This is a fabulous top. I love the style and the print is gorgeous. It would become my instant favourite if it wasn't for the fact it sags low around my underarms which is rather over-revealing. I'm a 5"1' size 10 and chose a size 10. If only I was a few inches taller or longer in the body!

Love this vest....

I tried to buy the version of this vest last year, but unsurprisingly it sold out in my size quickly, so I seized the opportunity when it came up this year! Love the collaboration with the Natural History Museum, and was really taken with the nautical stripe and gorgeous bumble bee on the back.

The vest fits really well and is extremely comfortable fabric....roll on Summer!

Thank you Finisterre....

beautiful design and lovely material

I'm in love with this top. The soft material is a joy to wear and it also hangs well. The pattern is gorgeous. Well worth the price

Superb as always

The top looks great (on my wife), the little bee detail is a nice touch that she loves.
