Liberty, famous British purveyor of crazy prints, may be set to collaborate with Target, ElleUK reports. The line would debut next spring, and colorful, flower-print dresses and accessories are pretty much a given.
The 134-year old Liberty is everywhere lately. Kate Moss has used Liberty prints in her Topshop collections, and the line has announced upcoming collaborations with artist Grayson Perry and even Hermès. Last week Liberty took street style into its own hands and got 200 fans to show up at its Carnaby Street store in London wearing flower prints by organizing a “Fash-mob”, which is a trend that seems to be going on in the U.K. right now. Mass crowds of people are summoned via the Internet to gather wearing the designer of the day and then just hang out and take adorable pictures. We wonder why no one is doing that here, yet. As part of the fash-mob, Liberty hosted a Zoolander-style walk-off and gave prizes for the best looks. —Elizabeth Licata
