A New Zealand native, the Pōhutukawa appears to have inspired this Max skirt.

For the first Europeans to relocate to New Zealand, the hardship of such journey and life in such a distant place must have been diminished by the fact that, not only was it Summer around Christmas time (instead of the cold, dark, wet UK), but also that this amazing new world featured these enormous coastal trees which burst with red flowers around that exact time of the year.

They must have seen it all as a sign of good fortune!
