A creature or spirit in Scottish and Irish folklore that has the form of a seal but can also assume human form. Alternative forms saelkie, selky, seilkie, sejlki, shelky, silkey, silkie, sulky
A typical folk-tale is that of a man who steals a female selkie's skin, finds her naked on the sea shore, and compels her to become his wife. But the wife will spend her time in captivity longing for the sea, her true home, and will often be seen gazing longingly at the ocean. Once she discovers her skin, she will immediately return to the sea.
Filled with color, exuberance and power, this collection is for the Selkie women everywhere, setting themselves free.
Summer of Love The story behind collection №7, By founder Kimberley Gordon The sound of seagulls rip me from a dead sleep. I struggle to open ...
The smell of sunscreen and roses, bikinis in the shower, romance novels, pink hand-towels, all night phone conversations, napping in darkened air conditioned rooms, black out curtains, dirty bare feet, the shaking of cocktails, shavers on the sink, tanning oil spilled on tile, hot towels in the sun, scorching cement, the sound of the Beatles on an old radio, warm leather in a vintage car, magazine pages turning- swish swish, hair sticking to your face... New Selkie summer is here... and it’s all about 60s trippers, rock n rolling around the houseShop Now! →
Relax and Float Downstream
Summer... if Selkie had a summer scent it would be a combination of jasmine, copper tone, Pina Coladas, a tiny touch of mosquito repellant and glitter. What does glitter smell like? Get a similar scent, my favorite summer perfume "The Beach" by Bobbie Brown.
