Land on Liberty

Add a touch of colour to your closet with Liberty London fabrics. 

 

 

Arthur Lasenby Liberty was an explorer at heart, and no more so than when he laid plans for a London emporium laden with luxuries and the finest fabrics from distant lands. He wanted to metaphorically dock a ship in the city streets filled with the finest goods from around the globe. Exotic and adventurous, yet quintessentially British, this founding spirit survives in Liberty fabrics today. Not only has Liberty been a figurehead for echoing artistic movements of the time, it has also guided and contributed to them too.

Heritage, style and impeccable quality make Liberty Fabrics a natural choice for SIRPLUS. Only bought in their softest, prized Tana Lawn™ cotton, “a cotton that behaves like silk”, we create classic, durable and creatively daring shirts, loungewear, nightwear and boxer shorts. Here are our top printed picks.

 

  

The Botanicals

Fantasy Land and Tresco offer a glimpse of the fantastical world of the tropics. Demonstrating you don’t always have to travel far, they are inspired by the tropical gardens of our beloved London, showing the rich collection of plants gathered to the capital from around the globe.

 

 Fantasy Land Camp Collar Shirt - Made with Liberty Fabric
 

Fantasy Land is inspired by Kew Gardens, featuring miniature animals, tiny glasshouses and spiralling staircases hidden in the foliage. Hand-drawn in the Liberty Fabrics studio, it’s delicate, detailed and impactful. This shirt is a very limited edition, so be sure you don’t miss out. 

Tresco Print Camp Collar Shirt - Made with Liberty Fabric
 

Tresco makes a splash with a watercolour print of lowers, ferns and succulents from the windswept sand dunes and landscaped borders of the Abbey Garden. Bold yet considered, it’s an ideal summer statement. 

 

 

Both designs are printed in Northern Italy onto the finest 100% Tana Lawn™ cotton. With precision and fluidity, the fabric allows for intense colour and a striking final print. Vibrant, durable and fantastical - Liberty at its best.

 

To London With Love

This season saw Liberty release their 'From London With Love' collection. A conceptual collection of fabrics about the love stories playing out in our capital, and our affair with the capital itself. The collection “offers a journey through the people, places and spaces of London – a letter of love from Liberty, to the city that will always have our heart.” How could we resist?

 

London Fields Camp Collar Shirt - Made with Liberty Fabric

 

London Fields is an imaginary map, made up of a collage of locations where Liberty London's in-house artists live and featuring the areas they call home. Dedicated to the city that houses creativity, commerce and charm in it’s winding streets, it’s a detailed and charming print that speaks volumes.  

 

 

Want more city classics? Then go no further than the Debonair print, formed from a clashing mix of neckties hanging from coat hangers in a textured all-over conversational print - the perfect indulgent gift in the shape of the timeless SIRPLUS boxer. Made in England with a stretch waistband, button fly and comfortable fit.

Make Waves

Looking for a loungewear update? Refresh yourself with our Liberty Print PJ Shirt and matching Trouser set. Opt for the striking River design – originally designed in 1968 and created at Liberty’s Merton print works, this pairing is made to last. Featuring a shoal of fish weaving through the waters of the River Wandle, surrounded by Art Nouveau-style waves, it’s a soothing lullaby for any nighttime connoisseur.
 

 

Or try a different offbeat signature with the Click Print PJ Shirt and Trousers. Inspired by the passion for globetrotting and treasure-hunting shared with his wife, Emma, the Click print pays homage to the small Kodak camera carried by Emma on the Libertys’ 1889 trip around Japan. A quirky conversational print with a clever geometric layout, it’s a true representation of Arthur Liberty’s bright outlook: that possibilities are as wild as your imagination.
