Description

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. ‘Primavera’ is a soft, luminous watercolour study of some of the mountain flowers Arthur and Emma Louise encountered on a trip to the Basque region of Spain in 1897. Pure Liberty, the design is painted in a careful but confident hand, expressing a sense of animated, burgeoning life. The palette is delicate, but highly varied from rich yellow-gold to the palest possible lilac. A limpid, delightful piece. Superior definition in tone and detail is made possible by the fine cotton used. The shirt has a three button cuff, classic collar and intelligent, tailored, regular fit
