Sussex - Liberty Silk Satin is another exquisite blouse weight silk satin taken from the Liberty Fabrics’ "From London With Love" collection for Spring Summer 2020.
"Sussex" is lustrously detailed and rich in colour – printed in Italy on fluid, reflective 16 momme silk satin. Inspired by an undated archival artwork and redrawn in the Liberty Fabrics studio, "Sussex" is a traditionally drawn floral print of roses, forget-me-nots, daisies and bellflowers. The design is printed by experts in Italy onto Belgravia silk satin – a fabric prized for its lustrous drape and fluidity, along with its luminously high-shine surface".
All the usual impeccable qualities you would expect from Liberty fabrics are present in this elegant beauty. "Liberty silk satin is lustrous and opalescent, characterised by a high-shine surface singing with colour depth and light reflection".
