I have a great pleasure to feature something special for you today. A few months ago I was contacted by the wonderful owners of The Lizzie Derriey Collection, located in the South of France. Being passionate about art and the intriguing stories it tells, I pretty much fell in love with their story and hope to pass it along here.
The works were each created by hand and are designs for textile or wallpaper - concepts if you like, prepared for fashion designers such as Givenchy, Ralph Lauren and Oscar de la Renta to name a few. The collection unites art, design and fashion, it is large and diverse and these beautiful and unique artworks are steeped in history and intrigue.
Liberty London carried a collection in 2011 with a great success and will launch a new one again. These are all original designs, created by designers using watercolours, gouache, pencil, ink cut-outs etc. I encourage you to keep an eye on what becomes available next and perhaps even purchase one for your own art collections.
I feel lucky to have an original piece from the collection at my home now (it is the floral design featured at the top of this post). Planning to frame it in thin gold frame and cherish it for years to come. Thank you Jane and John.
