Tana Classics: The Staff Shoot
Our favourite iconic Liberty prints on signature Tana Lawn™ cotton – shot at home, and modelled by Liberty staff and their familiesRead more
From decade to decade and generation to generation, Tana Classics are prized for their enduring charm and timeless style. These versatile, vibrant and joyful prints look great on everyone from age 1 to 101 – with classic designs blooming anew for each fresh crop of print-lovers, on our signature lustrous and silk-like Tana Lawn™ cotton base.
To celebrate the smile-making power of our signature fabrics, we shot Liberty team members and their families in iconic Tana Classics that reflect their style. From front doorsteps to back gardens and even the skatepark, each family wore garments crafted from ultra-soft Tana, featuring favourite classic Liberty prints.
Seb and brother Simon
We are both mummy's boys; our family home is where we find ourselves more often than not. Simon is also my longest-standing barber.
Lee Manor is refined and classically styled, a thoroughly modern gentleman's print. Paisley is a motif of Persian origin, evolving into pattern used in Indian textiles throughout history – my mind wanders to my mother's collection of silk sarees.
Mary-Ann and daughter Bella
During lockdown skating has become an important part of our family life. When my daughter asked me age 3 if girls could skate, I thought I should show her she can do anything!
Bella loves anything red and she doesn’t like anything too girly, so Betsy Ann is perfect – bright, fresh, and so tiny it almost becomes a texture.
Alison, Mum and daughter Arnya
My mum, daughter and I all love Tana Lawn. I have been wearing it since I first started working at Liberty 32 years ago. The garments portray our colour and style preferences – elegance (Mum), glamorous (moi) and bohemian (Arnya). As we say in Trinidad, “it’s not what you wear, but who is wearing it!”
Bryony and father Red
Tana Lawn cotton feels just like silk but way more practical for throwing a luncheon in the garden! Perfect for spring as it’s breathable in the sun.
“Melody Blooms is the maximalist dream, and very reminiscent of my garden when it’s in full bloom. I went full-maximalist and matched it to my tablescape – but my ever-dapper dad paired it with a navy suit and his signature panama hat.”
Zina and husband Jonathan
The lightness and softness of Organic Tana makes it super effortless to wear. It really keeps its shape, perfect for spring. I prefer it to loungewear – after the year we’ve had, that’s saying a lot…
Capel actually already features in our home, as we have a lovely bedspread and cushion by Coco & Wolf – it seems to officially be OUR print!
Madeleine, Maxi and Granny
As with all things Liberty, there is a timelessness to the prints and designs – not only does Mitsi work across the generations, but Granny’s cowboy shirt could have worked on me or Maxi too. And a small note – love that my dress has pockets!
