Liberty for Target

Posted by Red Ruby Rose Sunday, March 14, 2010

Timeless paper kindly featured my Liberty clutch this weekend as part of an article revealing the launch of a the new range of Liberty of London goodies at Target today. Having a peek at the website it looks like a lot of the homewear range is already out of stock. Understandable as some of the items are fabulous.

Liberty prints only selectively float my boat. I adore using the original Hera peacock print, originally designed by Arthur Silver in 1887, and the contemporary update is equally lovely.


However, I've never been a fan of the vast majority of the cotton dressweight fabrics, which always to me seemed a little fussy and twee. I think it's the scale, I'm drawn to larger bolder prints rather than their delicate little florals. Also, the staff in the textiles dept at Liberty have always been so haughty (maybe I've been unlucky) which makes the buying process a bit miserable.

So, I skipped the fashion section of the new Target collection and went straight to the homewear where this gorgeous cushion and cakestand caught my eye. Looks like they sold out within hours of being listed. This collection is currently available in the US but looks like selected items will be available via Liberty in April.

  2. I got a gorgeous Liberty of London floral planter and a light coat at Target - love them! And yes, there wasn't much, and what Target had is selling out sold out quickly if not sold out already!
