Sea Dreamer Silk Satin
In this colourful underwater landscape, piranha fish blow bubbles filled with Liberty’s much-loved Betsy print – a small-scale floral originally created in 1933 and reinterpreted here into a new narrative, offering a fresh take on a classic. The design was created by layering illustrated piranhas and photos of iridescent baubles over Betsy, lending it a dreamlike quality and luminous colour.
The design is printed by experts in Italy onto our fluid, reflective 16 momme Belgravia silk satin – a fabric prized for its lustrous drape and fluidity, along with its luminously high-shine surface. Construct it into eveningwear pieces such as sheath gowns, or use it to create opulently wearable daytime designs like wrap dresses and flowing shirting.
“Those pesky piranhas have swallowed up Betsy and are blowing Betsy-filled bubbles, filling the space with colour and pattern. This solarised collage featuring piranha fish and the Liberty classic Betsy, plays with intentional misregistration to give this underwater design a dreamlike quality.” – 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.
