Sam Wilde, ‘Vespertine’ is an exciting new graduate from the The Royal College, London. Discovered by the Liberty design team and commissioned to create a design for the SS21 fabrics collection he uses fine line ink illustration to create a repeat featuring the crescendo of a crashing wave.
From the SS21 Atlas of Dreams Collection, Vespertine Wave is part of the Coast Story. 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.
Please note: We tear our Liberty to achieve a line that follows the grain of the fabric - fabric edges may reflect this process.
