It’s that time of year again! Liberty launched its new collaboration with Nike today, and you’re going to LOVE all of the styles available. I’m a big fan of this ongoing relationship (one of my first illustrations for my first book, En Brogue: Love Fashion. Love Shoes. Hate Heels. was of Liberty print Nike Air Max, and a pair of Liberty print Nike Blazers made it onto the front cover of my second book, En Brogue: The Trainers Guide) and I really love the print they’ve chosen this year, called ‘Dawn Meadow’.
In stark comparison to last year’s 1970s flag print – which I loved but was a tad controversial – Dawn Meadow is back on track with a delicate floral print; it’s a botanical style originally painted in watercolour and placed on a white background which feels really fresh and seasonal. The lime greens and pops of orange are bright but not so in your face that you wouldn’t be able to wear a pair with, well, pretty much anything.
In more exciting news, this year you can get yourself a pair of pool slides. Not only bang on trend and great for the summer, but considerably cheaper than some of the other styles at £55. It’s nice to have something more affordable as all the other styles are nearly (or in the case of the Zoom Vapours, over) £100. I know loads of you really look forward to these being release each year, so I’d love to know which styles are your favourites. Leave comments below!
