For Autumn/Winter 2019’s Aesthetic Renaissance collection, Liberty Fabrics’ in-house design team drew inspiration from the adventurous life and artistic inspirations of their founder, Sir Arthur Lasenby Liberty. Traveller, tastemaker and gentleman, Arthur’s passion for globetrotting and treasure-hunting with his wife Emma forms the basis of Liberty’s enduring appeal. Inspirations swing from expeditions in faraway lands to the peace and quiet of English country gardens, via the opulently stylised forms of the Aesthetic Movement and Art Nouveau styles.
Neon Safari is a whimsical conversational print inspired by Arthur Liberty’s travels in the African savannah. Drawn in a chaotic style of colour and continuous line, it features a variety of elusive wild animals to spot. Bright pinks, greens and yellows contrast with the classic navy background.
This soft and sturdy Liberty Neon Safari A Piccadilly Poplin Cotton Fabric is machine washable and hard to wrinkle – a durable dressmaking essential. It had a dense and slightly ribbed texture.
