English Classics……Liberty of London

 

 London….where the wild things are! Everywhere I go, something or someone beautiful is there to inspire……..from the small to big…..but for now let’s go big…..department stores here, sure know how to keep those places jammed….my only disappointment is that most seem to buy the same designers….so it becomes a fashion revision….stand outs are Liberty, of course! as a devotee of the Arts and Crafts movement, this store is inspirational from the moment you see it! With it’s creaky wooden floors and stair case….it is the most refined shopping experience to be had in all of London! And what magic you will find! all the favorites of course, Isabel Marant, Sonia Rykiel, Acne, Carven….but where is their Lover rack??  The men’s department is the best in London too…..with an interesting take on the most beautiful men’s pieces any where, Marc Jacobs, MM, Comme …..Ohh but then there are other high lights like the sunglasses area, Retrosuperfuture, Cutler and Gross, Dries van Noten…….the homewares department, John Derian ….and the notions department….every Liberty print ever made is stocked here…I held on to my Liberty smelling salts which stopped me from fainting! I think I went back here 4 times in one week….and with Winter collections being delivered…well it’s only a matter of moments, despite the awful thought of having to get through the mosh pit they call Oxford Circus….

Here’s a little virtual shopping…..entrance making flowers….every level of incredibilty awaits!

Ladies with style need no words….

Homewares, notions and potions……

Having just seen the V & A’s “Cult of Beauty” exhibition….imagine my delight to see these museum worthy pieces mixed in the home wares department….how very 1890′s of them…..also on this dream floor is a section dedicated to Scandinavian home wares and textiles…all set in the original interiors the store was opened in…..

Liberty, Great Marlborough Street
London W1B 5AH
