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.

Spotlight On: Rodebjer

Friday 13th February 2015, 14.55




Introducing Rodebjer, exclusively available at Liberty.

Carin-Rodebjer

Founded in New York in 1999 after native Swede Carin Rodebjer’s designs caught the eye of New York buyers, Rodebjer offers laid-back luxury designed to be lived in. Exclusive to Liberty, Carin’s designs feature feminine tailoring inspired by the landscapes of her tranquil birthplace – Swedish island Gotland – the intensity of her adopted New York and the strength of the women she admires.

Close-up detail and soft draping lend a unique edge to traditional minimalism, while innovative construction allows the garments to be worn in multiple ways. This distinct aesthetic has earned Rodebjer numerous prestigious awards, including Swedish ELLE Designer of the Year. We caught up with designer Carin to talk design inspiration and stylish living, as her collection drops exclusively at Liberty.

We’re excited about Rodebjer launching, could you tell us about your inspiration for this collection?
I’m very excited as well. The inspiration for this collection was to visualize the life of an urban nomad. I wanted something that functioned well in the pulse of the city but at the same time felt relaxed. I wanted something that was very direct and therefore I studied the directness and energy of indigenous art as well as unschooled, yet brilliant, creativity.
– New York is such a unique city; does it influence your work? In what ways does this combine with Swedish fashion?
New York influences my work a lot. The energy, the people in the city, the melting pot of different cultures and styles. I like to bring that intensity into the Swedish sensibility and the Swedish style that used to be quite minimalistic. Therefore I usually say that our expression is rich yet clean. A mix of New York and Sweden.

In what way do powerful and independent women inspire your work?
I have always been inspired by women who take responsibility and lead their own lives. Therefore I want to make versatile design so these women can find their own personality in the collections. I don’t want to dictate too much and I don’t want our design to restrict movement.

Why choose Liberty for the exclusive?
Liberty is such an amazing department store. I like your heritage and I like what you are now. It’s a privilege to see Rodebjer as a part of your offering.

What is your top tip for stylish living?
Make yourself rich of valuable experiences.

What was it like moving multiple times between Stockholm and New York – was it difficult?
This last time was a bit more difficult since I brought a 1-year old child. Finding good daycare and insurances can drive you a bit crazy but it was definitely worth it. I have earned so many amazing experiences out of this.

Have you had a chance to visit Liberty? Do you have a store wish list?
I have been to Liberty but unfortunately not in a while. New York has kind of sucked me into it’s machinery. I haven’t had too much time to spend in Europe but that will definitely change because I miss Europe a lot.

What is your favourite Liberty department?
I love the fabric department – I love all the Liberty fabrics and patterns.

Kate Shapland’s Style Resolutions

Monday 19th January 2015, 17.00




Beauty writer and creator of Legology Air Lite for Legs Kate Shapland shares her five fail-safe beauty and style resolutions for 2015.

Kate Shapland

Stay stylish year-round with these five resolutions from beauty writer Kate. From ensuring you invest in the right clothes to simple steps to avoid a make-up faux pas, these are the mantras to repeat as you hit the shops and re-vamp your beauty routine.

1. With fashion and beauty, always wag your own tail! In other words, be aware of what is current, but only wear it if it works for you personally – and always temper it with a detail of your own.

2. Less is more with make-up. It really is. Focus on your eyes or your lips, never both. Keep your base clean and transparent, nothing ages you faster than a mask-like foundation.

3. Find your jean! It’s incredibly liberating when you identify the cut and brand that suits your figure – no more ‘what am I going to wear over my bum/thighs …’ And always wear heels (preferably a leg-lengthening neutral) with them. Think s.t.r.e.t.c.h for your legs.

4. Identify your perfect heel height – generally in line with your leg length – this is even more liberating than knowing what jeans suit you!

5. If your legs aren’t your best feature, wear dark matt opaque tights – they slim the outline. But not too opaque – 15 denier is good.
