Liberty Lido Masterly Semi-Abstract Modernist Shirt


Part of Liberty’s ‘Aesthetic Renaissance’ collection which celebrates the life and vision of the company’s founder Arthur Lasenby Liberty. One of the original merchant adventurers Arthur Liberty introduced the fascinating, exotic design ideas he had encountered to the emerging aesthetic movement, of which Liberty became a central pillar. Supplementing the inspiration found in far flung locales are designs which derive from Arthur Liberty’s love of the English countryside into which he escaped upon leaving the buzz of the London store. ‘Lido’ is a collage which cleverly produces a highly pleasing abstract effect from figurative elements. Swimmers dive, topple, bomb, launch and extend gracefully amidst semi-transparent droplets which produce secondary colours as they overlap. The Aesthetic Movement meets early Modernism. I think this is a really accomplished design – playful yes, but also very sophisticated. Design at its best. The colours and contrast are delightful. Three button cuff, inimitable Liberty Tana lawn long-fibre cotton. Classic collar. Intelligent tailored regular fit for easy comfort and confident style
