F/W 2016

For Fall/Winter 2016, Libertine designer Johnson Hartig gave us a very youthful and fun fashion demonstration.  We just loved everything about this collection, with its colorful pop art feel. The brilliant looks included capes, lace, emblems, beading, fur and florals. For men, we saw vivid graphics, baseball caps, skater pants, and sequined tracksuits. The trademark whimsical Libertine emblems were in full force again this season, including cigarette butts, fried eggs, bacon, and voodoo dolls, to name a few. It was a psychedelic visual overload.  Some of our favorite looks include the stunning capes (art pieces unto themselves!), a cream “Chanel” style suit, a 60s tweed coat with doggy emblems and fur cuffs, a vibrant pink and red stripe chubby fur, a black monkey fur vest and a deep plunging black dress with Swarovski hand appliqués. The lace tights embedded with sequins and studs were a great finishing touch. The finale included all the young models demonstrating up and down the runway while holding picket signs with witty sayings. Overall, we were so delighted with this collection. The clothing encapsulates amusement and jest. And this is why Libertine remains a Ponyboy favorite. Photography Alexander Thompson.
