Captain Cathay | Vintage 1980s pleated skirt Retro nautical rope print Tri-color dress

88 SGD
The story:

Rope prints mixed with boats and compasses and telescopes and all. Retro 1980s prints are all the rage once more and we recall having culottes with almost the same print back when we were in school. 

This dress has the same vibe of the 80s, but perhaps slightly more refined. The nautical vibe comes through with the distinctive rope motifs and a bit of more-than-retro, antique junk boat print adding a smidgen of the Orient. 

We love how the white/red diagonal stripes cut through the 2 shades of blues, lending it a cheery mood. 

All aboard!
