Denim Genius and Liberty Unite

LIBERTY LONDON is famed for its heritage floral prints, and for spring/summer 2013 they have collaborated on an exclusive collaboration with denim genius AG Adriano Goldschmied.
The 13-piece capsule collection features three of Liberty's most distinctive designs.
An innovative dye-lift process removes the indigo pigment from the fabric, leaving behind the impressioned floral design. The effect is one that perfectly unites AG's vintage design aesthetic with Liberty's enduring textile prints.
 We can't wait to add a touch of statement to our denim portfolio with a piece from the collection which launches today on March 21.  Get a sneak-peak here.

More than 50 Shades of Eileen Gray

 Eileen Gray is the 'black' of high design - her Dragon's Armchair set the bar when it sold at auction for 21.9 million euros in 2009.  Artist, furniture designer and architect, Gray was virtually ignored during her lifetime.  Today she is a collectors' dream as her pieces are so rare.  Gray is the subject of a retrospecitive at the Centre Pompidou in Paris.  Worth taking the Eurostar for!
