The pattern, overlayed onto close-up bloom petals, represents the two brands fusing together. Liberty creators designed the print by hand – a process that led to a new level of bespoke detail in the final colours, materials and engraving of the hardware and integrated click-in software experience. The result: 150 years of Liberty’s art and design has been adapted into a modern,
