London brand Liberty releases new patterns into its Art Fabrics collection every season. The new Spring/Summer 2012 Liberty Art Fabrics collection was inspired by archives, antiques and costume. Colour palettes were based around mood boards created by eminent contributors to fashion, art and antiques, with prints giving a nod to the beautiful Glencot House in Somerset as well as Olympic motifs.The collection is divided into seven sections entitled:
