Herschel Supply for Liberty

Friday 20th March 2015, 8.00






Introducing our latest design collaboration with global accessories brand Herschel Supply, perfectly combining our floral prints with the brand’s practical elegance in three design-driven women’s backpacks.

HerschelxLiberty

The collection features three covetable Herschel Supply silhouettes. The Ware and Hanson, with their clean, cylindrical shapes and cinch closures, and the uniquely styled Dawson, boasting multiple strap detailed compartments with a zippered interior and side-access sleeves. Crafted from lightweight, soft-touch fabrics with slender adjustable straps, the bags are detailed with traditional vegetable tanned leather and polished silver-tone hardware.

Herschel Supply carefully selected prints from the Liberty archive to use for the collaboration. Donna Leigh – inspired by a design from the late 1700s, combining a rich background with contrasting watercolour painted flowers – and Deborah – an Art Nouveau print inspired by an early Merton Abbey Mills pattern book.

Each backpack design comes in two options: a print combination of Donna Leigh Tana Lawn and Deborah Tana Lawn, or solid navy accented with tactile Donna Leigh print cord. Each bag is finished with a custom Liberty woven label.

The Herschel Supply for Liberty collection will be exclusively available in-store and online at liberty.co.uk from Monday 23 March.

Aromatherapy Associates’ Geraldine Howard

Friday 23rd January 2015, 5.00





As the exclusive new Aromatherapy Associates Renewing Rose Body Velvet cream arrives at Liberty, we caught up with the brand’s founder Geraldine Howard.

You tried your hand at biochemistry before transitioning to cosmetic science, what first encouraged you to start blending essential oils?

I studied cosmetic science at the London College of Fashion and that set my love for cosmetics. Then went on to work for Micheline Arcier, who worked with Dr Valnet, and they trained me in using essential oils. From my first day I fell in love with aromatherapy and went on just about every course and read every book to learn as much as possible. When I started to blend essential oils for my clients I learnt how powerful aromatherapy is at helping to transform our mood and help our general well-being. I think that is something we all need a little help with in our lives!

Tell us about your new product, Renewing Rose Body Velvet, and why you chose Liberty for its exclusive launch?

To celebrate Aromatherapy Associates’ 30th anniversary I wanted to make a special body cream that not only nourished the skin and smelt good, but also helped to keep the skin young looking. Our Rose body cream has always been one of our most popular products and this is really a super version of it with additional actives to help the skin retain moisture and stimulate collagen production. I wanted something to spoil and indulge the skin on our bodies and leave it feeling wonderfully smooth. We chose Liberty for the exclusive because we love working with the store and have a very loyal client base – it’s the perfect partnership to celebrate our anniversary with.

You’re well known for one of our best selling oils, Inner Strength, which came about from dark times you experienced. Can you tell us about the inspiration behind Rose Body Velvet?

The idea behind creating any new product always comes from either a need of my own, as in the case of Inner Strength, or the needs of a client or friend. As I get older I realise that the skin on our bodies requires more attention to keep it supple and healthy. We tend to look after our facial skin more than our body, so I wanted to make a cream that was really special for the body and in effect a ‘treatment’ each time you apply it.

What are your three key Aromatherapy Associates essentials or favourites?

1. Renewing Rose Body Oil – I love using oils under body creams or facial moisturisers to give the skin a real treat and this would be my desert island product as it is so versatile and can be used for hands, nails, hair… Plus, it smells wonderful and makes you feel good.
2. Overnight Repair Mask – I find it can transform my skin overnight, I wake up looking firm and smooth. It is so much easier than sitting with a mask and it saves time, too!
3. Inner Strength Bath and Shower Oil – it really did help me at a tough time in my life and continues to do so whenever I feel low.

What products would we always find in your handbag?

Pure Essential Oil Of Frankincense, Moisturising Lip Balm and Breathe Essence.

What are your top tips and products for unwinding after work?

If I am home late after a long working day I soak in a bath with our Deep Relax Bath and Shower Oil and then drop into a deep sleep. If I need to relax and enjoy an evening with family or friends then I go for a shower with our Light Relax Bath and Shower Oil. I also switch the electric room fragrancer on with the Relaxing Room Fragrance and enjoy the atmosphere it creates.

Why do you love Liberty?

I have always loved Liberty and actually bought my wedding dress in the store many years ago! I love the Liberty prints and used to buy lots of material, when I had time to do dress making. Now I just go to the scarves and bags to find beautiful prints.

Alexa Chung for AG

Thursday 15th January 2015, 10.00




Introducing the Alexa Chung for AG Jeans collaboration…

Alexa Chung for AG

Presenter, model and all-round style icon Alexa Chung has joined forces with denim brand AG Jeans to create an irresistible collection with a signature vintage edge.

‘The collection is inherently the missing pieces of my dream denim wardrobe, which, as ever, is predominantly inspired by a late sixties, early seventies aesthetic.’

As the poster girl for laid-back Brit-cool, Chung’s impeccable taste and keen eye for what’s coming next made her the ideal collaborator for Sam Ku, Creative Director at AG. With a moodboard full of rock-n-roll influences and a London-meets-LA finish, the collection is the ultimate peek inside Chung’s creative vision, brought to life by free-spirited AG Jeans.

Alexa for AG Moodboard

Fans of Alexa Chung’s inimitable style will love the nod to iconic sixties fashion, while denim lovers won’t be able to resist her easy-wearing designs. Take a first look at the collection here – available online and in-store from today!
