L is for Liberty of London

As far as fabric design goes, Liberty sits at the top of my list of favourites. Delicate floral prints, bold paisleys, peacock feathers, a myriad of colours, classic and modern design, all with a distinctly British feel. You know by now that Liberty did a collection for Target, but their range and quality goes far beyond these few prints.

My favourites...

Wiltshire, S

When I was at school in Edinburgh (over 20 years ago now, where has the time gone?), we had a huge Liberty store and my pocket money went on collecting their range of fabric covered picture frames and accessories. It was my equivalent of going to a sweet shop. I still love them as much now as I did then.

To their immense credit, Liberty has consistently moved with the times through collaborations with notable contemporary designers (Mac, Nike).

I covet their Nike x Liberty Dunk sneakers (above) and Nike x Liberty Blazer sneakers (below), and own a fair bit of the Target line.

If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting the Liberty London store, you have to put it on your list. It is a veritable monument to design and the window displays are insane.
