August will see New Zealand brand Parisian launch its sixth season of accessories featuring Liberty Art Fabrics. The Parisian X Liberty project links four generations of traditional tie making expertise in New Zealand with the rich history of the world's most famous print collection in London.
Drawing from the extensive Liberty Archive, the collection features iconic floral and paisleys and also showcases the thematic conversational designs from Liberty’s latest seasonal release.
This year’s theme, Castaway, is inspired by the imaginings and solitary musings from a deserted tropical island. This charming collection captures the enchanting world of aquatic flora and fauna, vast ocean horizons and a menagerie of tropical delights.
For its first collection, Parisian dug into its archive to revive the Batwing self-tie bow pattern with its straight paddle ends that shape into a bow that is as unique as its wearer. This season, sparked by a recent discovery of an old pair of English braces, they are introducing fabric braces into the collection.
And of course, with Parisian, every item is carefully crafted here in New Zealand.
