For decades, Liberty of London has represented the epitome of classic British style and elegance. Now, for spring 2013, timeless meets modern as the fashion label YMC (an acronym for “You Must Create”)  teams up with Liberty for a super-fresh line of seasonally trendy accessories (think decidedly English sneakers, hats and bags in lightweight canvas and cotton).

YMC dipped into the fantastical Liberty archives and selected two gorgeous prints to dress its spring 2013 exclusive accessories – one crisp floral print and one sophisticated paisley pattern – and the result is both wearable and accessible, as well as unexpectedly hip. The go-anywhere sneaks for women as almost like a grown-up take on the Keds kicks of our childhood, while the totes and backpacks take on an urban edge with rugged leather and rope details. Whether you’re dressing for rooftop drinks downtown, or adding the finishing touches to your music festival ensembles, YMC and Liberty have you covered for seasonal style and charm (£65.00 - £165.00).
