'Once Upon an Innocence'

Setting the scene for Fall are Teatum Jones dark and mystical prints taking you on a subconscious journey of fairytales, temptations and forbidden truths. 

Teatum Jones AW12 "Once Upon an Innocence " 'explores the sensationalistic and menacing side of the Grimm's Fairy Tales and Hollywood crime scene photography circa 1940’s. Both subjects once divorced of their folkloric enchantment and stylised imagery reveal wickedness, cruelty and abandonment in unconceivable measures. 

Teatum Jones’ AW12 collection paints scenes of oversized, treacherous yet utterly magical landscapes, blending early 19th Century Germany and 20th Century Hollywood. These scenes cast ominous light over what happens when one removes the magic from folklore and is left with the starkness of reality and plausibility'.

For more insight into the psychology of Grimm's fairytales read Bruno Bettelheim award winning and thought provoking book 'The uses of Enchantment' 
& Watch out for Liberty's collaboration with Teatum Jones in Sept!

Check out Cyril

Cyril Walter Crentsil sharp menswear collection 'Disparate Elements' takes it’s cues from the wonderfully patterned quilts of the Mennonite and Amish communities in North America interpreting them into modern geometric patterns using Adobe Illustrator. The geometric and abstract patterns form the basis of a larger study into how shape and pattern can be conveyed in both two- and three-dimensional formats within a print. Cyril Walter Crentsil

Liberty goes Digital!

Liberty goes Digital! Liberty is now embracing new technology with digital printing with their Tana Lawn range while maintaining its standard price of £21 a meter. The People's Print love the new range Mawston Meadow, a print inspired by a meadow of flowers at 'Godolphin House' in Cornwall, using subtle photographic qualities that retain the mood, nostalgic and classic feel of the Liberty fabric story. We can't wait to get to Liberty's to check it out.

'Although Liberty Art Fabrics prides itself on its main collection being primarily rotary and screen printed, it is very important not to ignore new technology and the ecology and versatility of digital printing. The most amazing designs can be created from photography, computer pixellation and high colour works of art'
