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.

Beautiful!

Lovely top. I was uncertain about the pattern from the website and worried it was a bit 'busy'. But it looks lovely in reality, the deep blue background really sets off the pattern and it's beautiful. The top fabric is smooth, heavy and slippery, which is a lovely combination and feels very high quality. Comfortable and flattering, my favourite top.

A great throw on top

This is a great top to throw on. It look more elegant than a t-shirt but not at all fussy. I’d buy it in a range of colours.

The best stripey vest!

The cut of this great little top is super flattering, and clever darting makes it hang beautifully. Top quality and workmanship: very impressed with my new fave t-shirt! Now just need some sunshine! 😎
