Embark on an exhilarating journey as we retrace Arthur Liberty’s travels through the Orient. New for Autumn/Winter 2016, The Silk Road collection draws on the rich cultures and diverse art forms found along this historic trade route – the source of Liberty’s early objets d’art. Reinterpreted Ottoman paisleys, geometric mosaics and Oriental florals are picked out in expressive colour palettes, taking you on a cross-continental voyage into the past and future of print.
Ideal for womenswear, swirling geometrics take inspiration from hypnotic Suzani prints while Oriental florals are drawn from Chinese brocades, then modernised with abstract details and clashing tones. Combine prints to reflect the melting pot of influences from both East and West.
The collection includes a variety of prints well-suited to menswear ranging from small-scale tiling to eccentric conversational designs. Mosaic-style geometrics offer a graphic feel while dynamic motifs and richly-coloured paisleys echo the interplay between tradition and modernity.
For childrenswear, keep it fun with bright motifs and multi-textured abstract prints. Steering away from the traditional, these contemporary patterns create a curated sense of chaos, mirroring the diversity of styles encountered across continents.
