Sea Garden is loosely inspired by two 1950s prints, one under the sea and the other on the surface of the waves. The Liberty design studio extracted elements to create a fresh, modern design which was still in keeping with the quirky character of the originals.
“Combining two archive designs to create a new marine world was an exciting but complex challenge – with strong ‘50s-inspired sections of block colour, working on a composition which seamlessly combined both under and above water was key to achieve a feeling of energy and movement.” – 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.
