Soapsuds Duchesse Silk Satin
Soapsuds was reworked from a Liberty archive design, depicting balloon-shaped bubbles in an all-over layout. This fun, medium-scale conversational design features pastel shades mixed with vibrant brights, to make the colours pop.
The design is printed on duchesse silk satin – a medium-bodied, high-thread-count satin renowned for its pearly lustre, with a structural stability that makes it perfect for beading and embroidery. A striking choice for bridal and evening gowns due to its dramatic draping and pleating qualities, duchess silk guarantees a dramatic entrance-making silhouette.
“A design which bubbled up from the Liberty archive, these bubble shapes were reworked and recoloured to look like balloons escaping in the sky.” – 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.
