It really seems like spring/summer 2011 is all about the collaboration. The latest comes from Supreme and Liberty. The two super brands have teamed up to create this long-sleeve shirt, which features a classic capel floral pattern, a button-down collar and single chest pocket. The shirt will be available in both red and navy colorways.

Tonight I had the chance to go to an exclusive acoustic set by Justin Townes Earle an exclusive acoustic set at Liberty department store in London’s west end, to celebrate the opening of the new Nudie Jeans shop.
While there I caught a glimpse of this amazing over sized bag. Made from 10 oz Turkish denim with a black coating, it would make an absolutely perfect weekend bag. The Handles, sides and bottom are made of leather, and the bottom is reinforced with six bag feet. This bag also features the jeans pocket embroidery made with an indigo thread and a customized gunmetal zip puller.
Unfortunately it was quite busy so I wasn’t able to check out some of the other bags Nudie had on offer. However, if this bag is anything to go off of, it will definitely be worth the trip back to take a look.
With Liberty and Men A La Mode all starting their summer sales recently, APC have got in on the act with their summer sale. As APC’s stock tends to swerve between ‘pre-order’ and ‘out of stock’, it’s fair to say that this sale will run out of stock pretty quickly. I would usually do the whole pick of the bunch thing, but as I’m in love with pretty much every item available at APC, they’d be no point.
OK, so we’re a bit slow bringing you this info but *searches frantically for positive angle* that just means you miss the opening day rush, right? Plus it’s Friday. One is in a more shoppy mood on a Friday, I find.
So, yes – the Liberty spring/summer sale is now on, with up to 50% off selected items.
The Liberty website mentions Marc Jacobs, Marni and Lanvin at reduced yet still reassuringly expensive prices. Rather annoyingly you can’t buy anything in the sale from the site itself, so it looks like a trip to one of their London stores may be in order.
At this point non-Londoners are quite welcome to curse me for bringing them news that is quite worthless to them.

As far as I know, Liberty of London didn’t have an online accessories store until fairly recently. It’s pretty slim pickings at the moment but these embossed leather holdalls half-caught my eye. I say half caught my eye because while I do like the shape and design of the bag there’s just something off with the bag.
I can’t put my finger on exactly what’s wrong with this bag – apart from the £395 starting price – but there’s a very strong whiff of ‘tasteless Russian billionaire’ about it. If you can get past that smell, then you can get these from the Liberty online store.
