When I heard that Clarks were collaborating with Liberty I couldn’t wait to see the outcome! With such a luxurious name working alongside a high street favourite the results were always going to be great weren’t they?
The print was chosen after looking through the Liberty Art Fabrics design archives and was first designed in 1902, although not printed by Liberty until 1967. It is quite easy to tell that the print is inspired by peacock feathers and although it has a vintage feel there is definitely a modern twist, mostly provided by the style of both the shoes and bags by Clarks.
The range consists of 6 pairs of shoes/sandals and 4 bags/purses, with the print continuing throughout the range – whether it be repeated all over one of the bags or on the wedged heel of a pair of shoes.
I love this “Minorca Bay” bag; it is much larger than I expected from the website photograph, which is a big plus. My handbags normally contain everything except the kitchen sink, so this bag will definitely fit my needs!
The bag also comes with a Clarks dust bag, what a nice touch! Retailing at £59.99 I think this bag is really reasonable and an opportunity to own a part of both Liberty and Clarks heritage!
