Throughout the ages, the lilac flower has often appeared in Liberty print – Lilac Revival is based on a pattern in an 1860s pattern book, redrawn and rescaled by the Liberty design team.
“When creating a new repeat from a motif, we often look back at successful archive examples – for Lilac Revival, we revisited our iconic Archive Lilac print.” – Ffion Griffith, Senior Designer
The Archivist’s Edit is curated by our legendary archivist Anna Buruma, the protector and custodian of Liberty’s design history for over 20 years. Encompassing 20 beautiful prints, the capsule collection shines a light into the more unusual and lesser-known corners of Liberty’s archive. Fragile fragments and half-forgotten artworks are regenerated into new designs by the in-house artists, drawing inspiration from Buruma’s favourite periods within the brand’s 145-year timeline as well as from across her own life and history.
