Liberty Prints
Better late than never..

It's everywhere this spring and summer.. and sort of an antidote to the monochrome stud embellished rockerchick chic that is so popular..

..pretty, sweet and exudes summer in the countryside.

A.P.C does it.. so does Topshop, Sessun, see by Chloé, Marc by Marc Jacobs ..and needless to say Cacharel ofcourse..

I love, love, love Liberty prints. They are quintessentially English.

I purchased a couple pieces from APC that Hanne posted-- the spaghetti strap dress and pouch. I plan on getting some fabrics from Liberty to make my own skirts and dresses as well.

Steven Alan is another label that used Liberty prints this spring...

I'm not sure I understand Liberty Prints that much (though I trashed Nikes with liberty prints in the "Shoes, Shoes, Shoes" thread). Are these essentially varied and micro floral details? I don't know this look too much to talk about it to a great degree. The good thing is that I don't have to see every other person hypnotized to skulls and Hot Topic chic all the time. I'm reminded of the '90s with these prints. Looks very childish, yet fun.

I only like Liberty prints when they're on something counterintuitive, like a bikini or a blazer. But when they are on something flowy and flowery and whatnot, it just bores me.

They've been around a lot longer than that, Liberty was founded in 1875. Here's some information from fashionencyclopedia.com

"Sir Arthur Lazenby Liberty, the founder of Liberty of London, contributed in 1894 to the Healthy and Artistic Dress Union's journal Aglaia, which stated his declared aim to "promote improvements in dress that would make it consistent with health, comfort and healthy appearance, but [dress] should not obviously depart from the conventional mode." Lazenby Liberty had left the Oriental Warehouse, famous among the leading artists and aesthetes of the day for its collections of blue and white porcelain and oriental fabrics in 1874 to set up on his own in half a shop in London's Regent Street. Lazenby Liberty presided over the shop's transformation from an Eastern bazaar to a department store that commissioned and sold modern design of all kinds.

"Liberty art fabrics" in subtle tones, which soon became known worldwide as "Liberty colors," (produced in collaboration from 1878 with the dyers and printers of Thomas Wardle) were the first step toward the creation of the shop's new image, and by the end of the century, Stile Liberty was synonymous in Italy with art nouveau. The quintessential fabric of the Aesthetic Movement was Liberty or Art silk and, aided by such popular successes as the Gilbert and Sullivan opera Patience (where the clothes were made from Liberty fabrics and Liberty artistic silks were advertised in the program) and the cartoons of George du Maurier—Liberty soon to became a household name.

In 1884 Lazenby Liberty opened the costume department, appointing as its first director the celebrated architect E.W.E. Godwin, whom Oscar Wilde once described as being "the greatest aesthete of us all." Godwin had made a study of historic dress and approached his task with almost missionary zeal, aiming to "establish the of dressmaking fame hygienic, intelligible and progressive basis."

Godwin's death three years later did not mean the end of his influence on Liberty dress, and the catalogues showed a wide range of Liberty Art costumes, ranging from a Grecian costume in Arabian cotton, to a peasant dress in thin Umritza cashmere, embroidered and smocked (a skill revived by Liberty and used on the finest materials). Smocking was also a striking feature of the Kate Greenaway-influenced artistic dress for children, a range of clothes hugely popular with Liberty's customers from the late 1880s onwards."

I actually bought this skirt yesterday...it's one of the Cacharel/Liberty skirts in ‘Joubert’ (‘Joubert’ was originally a silk print, drawn up by Liberty in the 1930s. It was redrawn in the early 1970s.)
