Liberty London's romantic florals, take on Doc Martens' tough guy boots and loafers
Liberty London is setting us up nicely for summer. After masterminding paisley prints for Nike, they're onto the next big thing--this time staying on their own soil and showering Doc Martens 3-hole shoes and 8-hole boots in variable blooms and birds.

These 'wild nature' 30s-style floral settings remind of those Little Golden Books we used to have read to us when were kids.
