Born from the vision of a Utopian paradise, Liberty Fabrics ‘Atlas of Dreams’ Spring/Summer 2021 Collection offers a whirlwind trip across dazzlingly diverse landscapes. From dusty desert topographies to lush rainforests, sun-dappled meadows and meandering coastlines, the collection gives dreamers a space to build a new world of their own imagining.
The Liberty Fabrics team collaborated with the British Library to create prints of sea monsters and cartographic imaginings, as well as with up-and-coming young Liberty discovery artist Sam Wilde.
Launch date: 15th Feb 2021

Four stories inspire the complete SS21 Atlas of Dreams collection…
The ‘Coast’ story is diverse and deeply personal, mirroring the rosy tones of distant summer memories. Depicted with gouache paints, inks, and water colours, these vibrant prints mix striped deckchairs and sailing boats framed by fragrant hibiscus and frangipani flowers. Look out for sea monsters and cartographic imaginings created in collaboration with the British Library.
Clear, dramatic vistas and rolling hills covered with wild flowers dominate the ‘Meadow’ story. Designs conjure up the reverie of a golden afternoon, with hampers and rugs spread out beneath a towering blue sky as picnickers make daisy chains in the long grass. Reminiscent of dreamy, soft-hued oil paintings, these prints include a haze of delicate florals alongside larger, surreal-scaled blooms.
The ‘Tropical’ story is painterly and vivid, with brush strokes inspired by the works of artists like Henri Rousseau and Paul Gauguin. The scenery is alive with the movements of insects, frogs, lemurs, monkeys and birds, from the jungle floor to the dappled canopy above. Some prints channel a psychedelic ‘60s feel, while others evoke an intricate botanical naturalism of creeping tendrils and trailing vines – a captivating setting, teeming with life on every level.
The wild at heart roam free within the ‘Desert’ story. Created in chalks, pastels and pencil crayons, these prints have a free-wheeling, road-tripping quality that evokes the magic of the open road, from sandy dunes to distant mountains. Conversational prints of neon motel adverts and road signs sit alongside photo real artworks of prickly pear and flowering cacti, all capturing a sense of shimmering heat and adventurous possibility.
This year we are offering 6 seasonal bundles curated in different palettes, each available in 3 different sizes. Each bundle includes a mix of large and small scale designs in a variety of gorgeous colours and tones.
