I love the fabrics used in Prada Cruise '10. I wouldn't wear most of the pieces in #29 but would in #30, especially the second dress. It's interesting to see Liberty prints used in an unconventional way (i.e. no flowy dresses or little button-up tops). You can always count on Miuccia to think outside the box.

What a way to attempt to make tough shoes (Post #32) cute by adding small flowers to them. Fail-tastic. Craptacular. Certain shoes need not these Liberty prints. I'd rather these be on skimmers, sandals, pumps, etc. Not Nikes. Not Dr. Martens-style boots. Now the flower top in Post #33... that's more like it! Both tops look lovely.

I just adore liberty prints! They're so quaint and girly, and I especially love Chloe Sevigny's S/S 08 Opening Ceremony collection.

Q- are they only liberty prints if made by liberty or can the term refer to any small floral? At any rate, this reminds me of my mother's crafting efforts of the 1980s!

i think the term "liberty" is applied to pretty much any small floral print these days...

I echo Chrissy - I think it technically is only supposed to apply to those created by Liberty, but generally we use it now as a descriptor. I've been loving liberty prints over the last 1.5 years but haven't done anything about it. Now I want to re-upholster a chair in a liberty print upholstery but the ones from Liberty are quite expensive (considering I figure I will need circa 9-10 yards) so I'd be happy to find a knock-off. but I love the print in everything. Shirts, dresses, knickers, whatever! It's both nostalgic and modern

As far as their furnishing fabrics you do get what you pay for though. I inherited a sofa from my mother which was upholstered in a Liberty fabric about 40 years ago...there's some wear and tear but it's holding up incredibly well.

That sounds lovely, Meg. Please post pictures of the finished product!

Liberty prints aren't a trend, they're a classic, and they suit everybody, love it on men too...

Not Liberty...but definitely Liberty-inspired...I just bought this padded jacket from Les Prairies de Paris...

Are you sure it isn't Liberty? I have a Liberty skirt (from Chloe Sevingy for Opening Ceremony) with that exact print. Either way, it's a cute jacket. I look forward to seeing how you wear it.
