Last week I was in London and decided to pop into Liberty and see the latest designer fashion ranges. This store is not only beautiful but manned by the most helpful and informed staff.

So often nowadays one battles through the crackling static of over lit, overfilled aisles to even find a sales assistant. Here there is space, subtle lighting and the most pleasant and discrete offers of help. The music is pretty interesting too and quite a contrast to the quirky gentility of sales floor.

This display was sumptuously framed by the polished parquet and heavy beams. The printed fabric cut to make a feathery fringe was a fascinating and tactile use of a richly random mixture of colour. I just had to touch and run my fingers through this mane.

Mary Katranzou

The Japanese inspired prints from MK with fluid clouds of colour broken by the use of softer tones then enlivened with pops of colour were beautiful.

This collection seemed to have been made to compliment the interior of Liberty being elegantly sumptuous. The embroidery had an Eastern European folkloric feel that seemed fitting in this arts and crafts building.

A cool eclectic collection of tattoo prints, vintage florals and embroidery – this was a younger edgier look.

Isabel Marant Etoile

Popping dark based florals and wonderful primary coloured ikats prints.

Alice and Olivia

This rail of sophisticated dresses appears to be a fantasy wardrobe; elaborate brocades and jacquards, satin devoré and bold prints. There is something vintage in the look which makes one dream of cocktail parties.
