The Stile collection has been inspired by the Art Nouveau movement and also more specifically by the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Liberty has a rich cultural history and an important part of this is the influence that the Art Nouveau movement had on the company and the designs it produced. In fact, Liberty designs captured the moment so well that in Italy the Art Nouveau movement is known as 'Stile Liberty’.
When starting to design the collection, the Liberty archive was the first and obvious place to look and it soon became apparent what a rich seam of designs and reference there was to be found. Having discovered some wonderful designs to use, we decided to broaden the search for inspiration and organised a trip to Glasgow to research the work of Charles Rennie Mackintosh. His work seemed like a perfect fit as he was such an important representative of Art Nouveau in the United Kingdom and he had such a unique take on the movement. While in Glasgow, we took photos and visited iconic buildings such as the Glasgow School of Art, the Willow Tea Rooms and the Hunterian Museum where they have reassembled the interiors of Mackintosh’s Glasgow home. These images were then used to produce new designs to sit alongside the wonderful archive prints. There are thirty-two designs in the ‘Stile’ collection, eight different designs and four colour palettes.
