Beckon the return of spring with Beauty and Chaos, the spring/summer 2023 collection from Liberty Fabrics

By: Charlotte Pavitt

If you’re plotting your next craft project, make Beauty and Chaos, the spring/summer 2023 collection from Liberty Fabrics your first port of call. Just the thing for your next dressmaking venture, the collection features charming prints from across three design families - healing vs poisonous, wild vs formal, harmony vs discord - each one celebrating nature’s nuanced contradictions. And with designs printed on our signature Tana Lawn, poplin and silk bases, the crafting possibilities are almost endless.

The natural world has always been a source of inspiration for Liberty, informing our creative outfit for the past 150 years, from the earliest woodblock botanical motifs to our most cutting-edge digital designs, our artists and designers have long looked to gardens, fields and forests to spark creativity and wonder. Returning to this elemental source of imaginative power, this latest collection is a story of opposites, contradictions and complexities. The only question is: what will you make with it?

Discover the Beauty and Chaos Collection

Taken from a tiny botanical painting discovered in one of Liberty’s archival books dating from the 1860s, Posey Polka is an amalgamation of artistic heritage and graphic simplicity. The delicately hand-painted flower sprigs are incorporated within a grid of striking polka dots which represent the moon, capturing this healing power in a new and contemporary aesthetic.

Inspired by land art sculptor Andy Goldsworthy these tiny flowers cluster in large loose polka dots shapes which disperse across the fabric to create this ditzy multidirectional design painted in gouache.

Elegantly poised and mirrored in perfect symmetry, geometric inspired flower forms come to life. Originally created in 1989 as a Liberty furnishing fabric, this highly structured pattern is a fresh and modern interpretation of the Arts and Crafts style.

Inspired by the beautiful illustrations on vintage flower seed packets, this is a nod to the therapeutic benefits of gardening. Painted in gouache with fine detailing, it features traditional garden flowers, including sweet peas, poppies, petunias, forget-me-nots, pansies, geraniums, cosmos and nasturtiums.

Creating something new from the recycled, this textural floral geometric was formed from cutting and bonding recycled plastic bags and is a new example of the bold graphic florals of the 1960’s.

Poppy Day is a brand-new version of our classic Poppy and Daisy, redrawn and recoloured as a two-tone silhouette. Reimagined in a myriad of colourways throughout the years, this timeless floral remains one of our most widely recognisable patterns yet has never been interpreted in flat colour. This new monochrome stencil effect creates a distinct aesthetic for more contemporary looks.

Reimagined from a gouache painting discovered in the Liberty archive, this design is a true celebration of a singular bloom and the drama created by planting in formalised rows. Small and oversized tulips create a dazzling display of spectacular pops of colour.

Welcome to a playful parade of people, plants, and pretty pastures. This delightful design was originally created and printed for Liberty in the early 1990s and features a variety of tiny, illustrated figures surrounded by joyful countryside scenes. Retaining the original hand illustrated effect, Picnic Parade is reminiscent of children’s storybook fragments pieced together as a multifaceted patchwork quilt.

Inspired by a Liberty scarf pattern originally created during the late 1950s, this whimsical conversational print transports us into a dreamlike celestial setting. Drawn in fine liner this design hints at the life-giving force and healing powers of the sun. Ethereal clouds, glorious skies and magical radiating suns play hide and seek within the ever-changing expanse of our atmosphere.

This charming fruit garden design was inspired by an artwork from the Liberty archive which was originally printed as a furnishing fabric in 1964. Harnessing nature’s juicy delights, Summer Orchard showcases the formal planting of a variety of blossom and fruit trees, interconnected by a diagonal leafy trellis.

This small botanical motif was based on a piece of fabric from the Liberty archive, dating from the 1890s. A very typical Art Nouveau style design, the graphic flower sprigs have been abstracted into almost entirely geometric shapes, creating a very regular grid formation with lots of background space.

Delicately drawn wildflower trails seem to dance and glide gracefully in this detailed botanical display. Sunflowers, zinnias, ironweeds, snowberries, asters, celosias and bellflowers among others create a glorious spring celebration.
