Piranharama Crepe de Chine
Taking inspiration from Philip Ridley’s fantastical story of The Hooligan’s Shampoo, Piranharama was created using cut-out stencils and roller printing. The simple layout and bold use of colour enables the technique to really stand out.
Crepe de chine is one of the best silk bases for daytime wear – it’s effortlessly luxe, with a lightweight drape that’s made more durable by its matte, slightly rough surface. Try using crepe de chine to create a louche effect with wide-leg trousers and loosely tailored shirts, or with fluted sleeves and ruffled accents for a romantic feel.
“Taking inspiration from The Hooligan’s Shampoo children’s book, this design features whimsical piranha fish created using cut out paper stencils and roller printing. This simple technique shows the beautiful colour density of gouache paint and the range of unpredictable mark-making.” – Shona Heath

Visionary set designer Shona Heath brings her fantastical touch to Liberty print, in a unique new collaboration created for the Liberty Fabrics Design Series. Inspired by Philip Ridley’s 1996 children’s book The Hooligan’s Shampoo, Heath constructed miniature sculptures in her studio from everyday corner shop objects – off-kilter scenes of rubber-band bows, flowers made from washing up sponges, and discarded banana skins were painted into beautiful artworks by the Liberty Fabrics team, appearing here in a parade of vibrant colours and textures.
