Liberty Print Bouquets by Bloom and Wild


British, iconic and timeless, liberty prints have become a national treasure. But they have just gone one step further and collaborated with online florists, Bloom and Wild, to bring our favourite designs to life.

“These special, limited-edition bouquets were inspired by our favourite archival Liberty Prints and each one is as much of a masterpiece as the print behind it. We think they’re the ultimate gift idea for any occasion this autumn.”

Aron, Bloom & Wild Co-Founder & CEO

The Ciara



The Ciara liberty print harks back to the 1960’s and is rich in colour. The Bloom and Wild team have “bought this lively print to life with spools of buttery soft roses, cerise stocks and luscious foliage.”

The Rachel



Meadow floral print, The Rachel, is beautiful levels of blues and greens. Bloom and Wild have interoperated this with hare’s tail grass, buttery roses and thimbles of eryngium.

The Pheobe



Liberty fabric ‘The Phoebe & Joe’ is the next print that inspired the Bloom and Wild team. Bright ditsy florals interlinking amongst winding meadowy stems; this bouquet is colourful with orange freesias, purple veronica and spindly snapdragons.

The Ultimate Versace

The craze has begun and not only are celebrities wearing Versace skins but the originals from the 1990’s are going under the hammer for more than they cost the first time round. If your budget does not stretch this far here are some similar looks from Sublitex for those intent on standing out from the crowd. Whether you go for garish gold or a more subtle copper this is a bold brash look not for the faint hearted or a shyly retiring fashionista.

Noel Fielding’s Iconic Shirts

Turning heads is what Noel Fielding knows how to do best, and that certainly hasn’t changed since his debut on the Great British Bake off as host last year. The choice of brightly patterned shirt that he decides to wear is almost as newsworthy as the baking itself.

This was no different last week when Noel started off the series in a brick wall printed shirt from womenswear brand, Lazy Oaf.


A Print Affair favourite, Silken Favours, had their raven shirt worn by Noel for his first ever appearance on the show.


Italian week last year saw Noel wear this rather out there shirt. The contestants were asked to make pizza that week so he certainly didn’t look out of place.


Lazy Oaf also featured last year in bread week when Noel modelledthis mood lifting smiling face shirt.


This final shirt is a all round winner for the bold presenter. Again, from Lazy Oaf, this shirt is full of fun with cakes and ice creams which Noel wore during caramel week last year.

Animal Print

H&M and GP & J BAKER

Known for their ‘high street meets designer’ colaborations in the fashion world, H&M have now decided to refresh their print handwriting by teaming up with interior furnishing giants GP & Baker.

This iconic British company have been running since 1884 and have been lucky holders of the Queen’s Royal Warrant since 1982. Identified by their whimsical, enchanting floral prints, the interior brand has injected a unique twist on H&M printed garments.



“The prints selected are part of GP & J Baker’s unique DNA. They are some of our most iconic and most treasured designs, so to see them continuing their journey into a new arena in such an innovative and interesting way in the world of fashion is a wonderful prospect.”

Ann Grafton, managing director and creative director of GP & J Baker.


The team at H&M had to whittle all of the print designs from the GP & J Baker archive down to a handful of designs for the range. The “Magnolia” design, painted by William Turner as one of the designs and “Hydrangea Bird” and “Oriental Bird” which have continued to be best sellers for the company for 100 years.



The collection is commercial and are perfect shapes for transitional timing. The prints help the bridging from summer into autumn.


“It’s such a wonderful time in fashion for statement-making prints and patterns so we’re excited to be collaborating with one of the most prestigious textile and wallpaper houses,”

Pernilla Wohlfahrt, H&M’s Design Director.
