Emerging in the 1920s, Surrealism’s dreamscapes opened up a new world for creatives, where an emphasis on artistic freedoms allowed them to explore their unconscious and subvert reality. Fast-forward to today and this combination of fantasy and liberation fuels our latest sleepwear collection, showcasing hand-painted prints in lounge shapes.
“Our iconic Ianthe design was originally created as a wallpaper layout by the well-known French Art Nouveau designer R. Beauclair in around 1902, and was redrawn by David Haward’s studio in the ‘60s – here it appears in a magnificent statement placement.”
“The chemise’s streamlined silhouette is printed with Cecil, its folded draperies and delicate leaf trails echoing the rippling pleats of intricate lacework.”
“Dora is a magnificent trompe l’oeil print of ruffled lace with florals and paisley elements, hand-drawn by our designers in the Liberty studio.”
“The Leonora design forms a striking placement – with a shawl collar and waist tie adding an extra dimension of chic wearability.”
“The short two-piece pyjama set is printed with a pair of complementary artworks drawn from the Liberty archive – both inspired by a historic hand-painted study of a scarf border.”
