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 ยฃ55. It’s nice to have something more affordable as all the other styles are nearly (or in the case of the Zoom Vapours, over) ยฃ100. 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!
