The hero print for Cruise 2017 is a playful design named after Maracas Bay in Trinidad. It was painted by hand in our London studio, using a combination of oil and acrylic paints for a loose, bold feel. Bountiful Peruvian lilies and vivid bird of paradise plants stand out against deep green foliage. The oil paints have rendered the petals almost 3D-like in quality. The Matthew Williamson blue Maracas Montage print.
