The Print House

Every print tells a story. An old treasured button, a scrap of delicately-embroidered fabric, a quirky antique. Unique finds capture the heart - and are reimagined at the Lily and Lionel London studio to create hand drawn or painted prints not found anywhere else. Open out a silk scarf or look closely at a printed dress - there is always more than meets the eye. So take a tour of the Print House, an archive of Lily and Lionel signature prints collected through the seasons.

Secret Garden

Inspired by our best-selling Pressed Floral Ivory print, Secret Garden evokes high summer; pressed flowers in sunshine yellow are tempered with dusky sage-coloured leaves.

Wishing Well

Lose yourself in the magic of the Wishing Well print, inspired by traditional Toile de Jouy and Japanese landscapes on vintage kimonos. Each time you'll spot something new: leopards lounging under a tree, hot air balloons, secret forest trails, sunsets over mountains. Dream away...

Garden Topaz

An artistic expression of a floral print, Garden Topaz’s fluid floral markings come to life against a jewel-blue base colour, a key hue for SS21.

Silhouette Blue

A vintage-inspired abstract floral, Silhouette Blue's fresh ivory flowers on chalky denim blue create texture to this tonal print. A timeless summer palette.

Floral Leopard Rust

A scaled down version of its mahogany counterpart, Floral Leopard Rust is a delicate interpretation of this hybrid, hand-painted print. Offset by an earthy base palette, the fresh ivory markings create an abstract texture and illusion of movement.

Pressed Floral Ivory

Created from pressed flowers picked during walks in the Devon countryside, Pressed Floral Ivory is inspired by the botanical blooms and herbaria from the breathtaking archive at Kew Gardens, London.

Ocelot Midnight

An update on a classic, Ocelot Midnight’s hand-painted abstract markings create a graphic, two-colour animal print: a deep midnight navy base colour, offset by soft oat accents.

Curious Zebra

Inspired by a Vogue cover from 1926, the Curious Zebra is hand-painted in our London studio. A dazzle of zebras blend quietly into the dusky blues and creamy ochre; spot their monochrome markings jumping among the soft florals.

Floral Leopard Mahogany

Printed on a rich mahogany base, the Floral Leopard hybrid creates an abstract texture and illusion of movement within the hand-painted print. Warm, sandy colour markings complete the earthy palette.

Archived Print: Wild Rose

Inspired by a tumbledown cottage in the English countryside - rambling roses, faded interiors, eiderdown quilts handed down from generations - Wild Rose is our interpretation of a heritage print. Warm tones of dusky pink, fuschia and lilac contrast in varying scales of ditsy to overblown florals.

Shop Current Florals

Archived Print: Painted Leopard

A Lily and Lionel signature, the Leopard print has been shrunk to a micro scale this season for an abstract, polka dot design. Painted in Indian ink against a warm caramel base, the movement of the black markings are brought to life by the lustre of a new silk satin fabric.

Archived Print: Bloom

Influenced by a vintage 1970s interior fabric discovered in a flea market in Brighton, Bloom offers a subtle Lily and Lionel take on the iconic psychedelic floral. The dense florals in tonal shades of blue create a textural landscape, inviting a closer look amongst the foliage.

Archived Print: Wild Aster

Blooming from late summer into early autumn, the aster flower offers a flush of colour even as the light starts to fade. With its chalky blues, deep navy and warm sandstone, Wild Aster is the (shy) sister print to Wild Rose; she can be found - subtly - on covered buttons. Wild Aster is a lighter version of Wild Aster Dark.

Archived Print: Zebra Tobacco

Rich tobacco and midnight navy tones create - at first glance - an abstract zebra print. But take a closer look and discover hidden zebras leaping over the markings.

Archived Print: Tuxedo Ivory and Tuxedo Black

Feminine florals contrast with vintage-inspired foulard prints found on men’s pocket squares and fringed smocking scarves. The black, burgundy and ivory tones in this abstract, androgynous floral complement the silk satin pieces in our block-colour range. Available in the softer Tuxedo Ivory or with a bolder Black base.
