Discover the world of Celestial Daydream, the latest collection from the Liberty design teamShop Celestial
Cosmic forces collide with chilled-out bohemia for Spring/Summer 2017 at Liberty. The result is the all-new Celestial Daydream collection: ten silk scarves which meld the wonders of the cosmos with the psychedelic styles of the Seventies. From starry constellations to wild grasses, flowering meadows and rainbows, Celestial reimagines prints from the Liberty archive and transforms them into mind-altering patterns; peacock feathers, flashing zig zags, light-as-a-feather clouds and twinkling stars drift across silk, while technicolour ombré stretches evoke the slow-shifting colours of the galaxy. Expand your mind and embark on a mystical journey in print…
1. Pandora:The Peacock revolution took full flight in the Seventies where it became synonymous with tie-tops, maxi dresses and bellbottom flares. Before that, Liberty London became famed for its Merton print featuring peacock feathers, designed by eminent textile designer and leading figure of the Aesthetic Movement, William Morris.
Pandora Silk Satin Scarf - £145
2. Aurora:Calling upon the constellations of the night sky comes the entrancing Aurora, featuring swirling decorative medallions, paisley tendrils and dotted borders. Created for Liberty in 1970, the design originally took form as ‘Roundel’; and now, the Liberty design studio has taken the striking paisley leaf motif and reinvigorated it as an oriental silk twill square for SS17.
Aurora Silk Twill Scarf - £195
3. Daydream:A lilac haze falls upon the landscape of Daydream, a fanciful English countryside design based upon the Liberty Arts & Crafts archive print Melbury, designed
in 1906. Featuring a fantastical English meadow inhabited by resident rabbits, deer, birds and swans, Daydream encapsulates the spirit of spring fashion for 2017.

4. Andromeda:Drawing inspiration from astrological charts and formations in the cosmos comes Andromeda, a mesmerising scarf that epitomises a celestial daydream. Fusing geometrics with roundel medallions and piles of paisley leaf pattern, this beautiful scarf printed on lightweight silk satin will become an outfit in its own right.
