At the beginning of the summer, we reported Liberty Prints were the pattern of the present. But now it seems those little flowers have bloomed into a fuller form, recalling French realist Henri Fantin-Latour's floral still lifes, particularly the piece on the cover of New Order's 1983 seminal album, Power, Corruption, and Lies.
