Blog: Leonie BarrieRocking the boundaries

Leonie Barrie | 17 June 2009

Judging by the pictures that appear regularly on the pages of the tabloid press, Rolling Stones musician Ronnie Wood is not, at first glance anyway, the most likely collaborator on a trendy fashion range.

So it’s perhaps a relief to realise it’s not his personal style that’s the inspiration for a new line with up-market department store Liberty of London.

Instead, it’s Wood’s other pastime as an acclaimed artist that is leading to a collection of prints which will appear on a range of men’s and women’s ready-to-wear and accessories designed by the retailer’s creative director Tamara Salman.

We’ll have to wait until the autumn, though, to see if the range really rocks.
