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. Inspired by Arthur and Emma Louise’s visits to Africa and India this is a fun, playful design which crams as many animals as possible into one energetic space! But it is the way they are drawn which intrigues – in a very free but skilled looping continuous line. Then the forms are coloured very artfully with a loose ink wash in such a way that the linear and colour elements retain their own space and character. Very tastefully done indeed. On finest Tana lawn cotton with a three button cuff, classic collar, intelligent tailored regular fit.
