If you’re a fan of floral fabrics – like me, as seen in here, here and here – let me share with you something very exciting! Levi’s has teamed up with Liberty London to launch a capsule collection of 11 pieces that are all so gorgeous!
You have definitely heard of Levi’s. It is the grandfather of all jeans in the world and an irreplaceable icon in the fashion industry. When you buy a pair of Levi’s jeans, what you are getting along with it are uncompromised craftsmanship and a rich heritage. In this partnership, several classics you can expect are the iconic Levi’s 501, trucker jacket, bustier, and a coveted collection of accessories.
Now, Liberty London is well known for its printed textiles that is heavily inspired by floral, fauna, exotic and oriental designs. Since the 1930s, over 43,000 original designs are now held in the Liberty print archives , with hundreds of new designs added each year! The textiles are too beautiful for a fabric lover like me to resist! I’m always shopping online for fabrics, as most of the fabrics I use for Beary Naise (my own handmade bags business) are imported. So I know beautiful prints when I see one. :)
This particular floral print, named Carlin after Levi’s designer working on the collection, is inspired by prints from the 1970s. Re-drawn and hand painted with water colours from Liberty’s print archives, it features micro flowers in bloom.
A variation of the motif is used in both the skinny stretch jeans and oversized bandana. Other pieces play with colour and scale, using different shades of denim and incorporating the floral fabric into details such as piping, pockets and panels.

The other print, named Kerr Bandana, is inspired by a painting from the Liberty archive dated late 1940s. The print is painstakingly laser-ed onto the denim, as you can see from the subtle design on the picture below.
