The more time that I spend in London, the more exploring I get to do. Liberty London was a place that was on the top of my list to go and find. After all of the hype that I had heard from people who had already been abroad and all of the YouTubers that I watch, it felt as if I was going on some kind holy pilgrimage, to my Mecca. I was not disappointed when I arrived, I was overwhelmed by all that Liberty had to offer and I only made it through two floors.
The two floors I went to were the ground floor and the fourth floor, the latter was where the original prints that Liberty designs were displayed. These prints can either be bought in the form of fabric or printed on various items such as dishes, clothes, and “trinket tins” that hold goods such as cookies or tea. Walking along the aisle, lined with bolts of fabric, it is impossible not to be stuck by the pure artistry and creativity that goes into the design and creation of these fabrics.
The first floor was also incredibly overwhelming. The beauty counters were things that dreams are made of. Liberty has done an incredible job of taking the “department” feel out of shopping at a department store. Each counter and area is perfectly designed and there is a natural flow between the different sections of the stores. Each “department” is beautifully designed creating a much more welcoming and “luxe” feel to the whole experience.
The final section of the store that I was really moved by was the Liberty London original bags. As someone who has lusted over a Goyard tote for years, these bags quickly dethroned the Goyard in my mind. While these bags are not inexpensive by any means, they are much less costly than the Goyard and have the unique value to remind me of my time in London. The Libery London Oxblood printed bags particularly caught my eye, and I think it is safe to say that before my time in London is through, I will be making a new addition to my closet in the form of a Liberty London bag.
