This design was inspired by a 1960's Liberty archive print. Originally designed as a menswear print, it is a small conversational featuring ships in bottles, arranged in a grid formation.,,Message in a Bottle is part of the SS17 Liberty Collection 'Castaway'. Inspired by the imaginings and solitary musings from a deserted tropical island, Liberty?s collection ?Castaway? captures the enchanting world of aquatic flora and fauna, vast ocean horizons and a menagerie of tropical delights in a charming collection of island prints. Explore the underwater kingdom of marine corals, swimming paisleys and swirling shoals of fish, discover memories captured on the pages of a journal to the soothing sounds of ocean spray and wonder at the carnival of glistening constellations and spiralling planets revealed by an endless night sky. Colour palettes are derived from this dreamy island paradise: from saturated blue skies, vivid aqua seas and rich earth tones, to sun bleached hues of silver birch, sage and sherbet, offset by sophisticated white washes of pearl, seashell and alabaster.
