Shake off the winter cold with some floral prints! Look back at Liberty of London's iconic bright florals and the great retailer with the new book from ACC Editions
, Liberty and Co. in the Fifties and Sixties: A Taste for Design, by Anna Buruma. J. Crew embraced liberty prints recently in their button down shirts. I am always pleased when companies rejuvenate the pastel prints. I have the stuffed fabric frogs from London, cosmetic bags I cannot get rid of, headbands and the like all in my favorite prints of yore. We need more Liberty in interior design! This is a good push for a revival, fashion and home are so intertwined. Some of the prints in the book are shown below:
Wear it and live with it, nothing is wrong with that! Stephen Stolman created clothing from Scalamandre prints in a similar way. Someone should do this silhouette- 50's and fabulous.
Wild and crazy.
Great colors for Palm Beach.
