Hot on the heels (yes, bad pun) of their successful Summer 2013 collaboration with American skate fashion icon Vans, Liberty of London has teamed up with them again. This latest venture is a holiday collection featuring their quintessentially English floral, paisley, and abstract designs on classic American kicks. The colors are rich jewel tones—appropriate for the season and unexpectedly fun on street wear sneaks.
Over the past several years, Liberty has been consistently out-doing itself with adventurous odd-couple pairings of surface pattern design and fashion, including work with Nike, Northface, Supreme, Dr. Martens, and Edwin. The only collaborators that might have topped them (in 2013 anyway) would have to be MIA versus Versace, which has raised the bar quite high. Liberty certainly seems to be headed down that road.
It's exciting to think what they will do next...
