Liberty prints for less

With last weekend's unveiling of the new-look Liberty store in London, Liberty prints are hot news right now - not least with the latest incarnation of Nike Dunks in the store's famous fabric (so cute!).

The high street has been having its own love affair with Liberty prints, with both Gap and Topshop offering exclusive designs in Liberty fabrics. While the latter has gone all boudoir chic with everything from bras and knickers to bustiers and bloomers in saccharine-sweet florals, the former has put classic pieces in Liberty prints. And, the good news is that Gap is discounting its Liberty collection as part of its 'seasonal clearance' (yep, new stock was only just rolling into the stores a fortnight ago and now there's already reductions in store!).

My favourite is the dress above, reduced from £60 to £35. It nips in nicely at the waist and comes in a more abstract pattern than the more familiar florals. Liberty itself is offering 50% off this 'Poplar' design, so at £9.98 per m, you could run up some matching garments (bloomers perhaps?).

Gap has also turned the Poplar print into a pretty button-front skirt, down from £45 to £19.99, while its Liberty-print blouses are now all £19.99, too. There's also Liberty-print shirts for men, including the one above, which are a steal at, yes, you've guessed it, £19.99. Reduced from £45, they're a fraction of the price tag a Liberty-print shirt commands in the store itself.

PS. Kate Moss is getting in on the act, too - the supermodel is teaming up with Liberty for her next Topshop collection. I'll keep you posted!
