S/S 2017

Libertine designer Johnson Hartig is all about having fun, and quite a lot of it obviously. With his whimsical and colorful creations, the looks he sends down the runway are such a refreshing sight season after season. For Spring/Summer 2017, Hartig paid homage to Brit punk with his anti-establishment clothing, which included a leather jacket with painted text stating, “We hate everything”, featured on boxer/model Charlie Himmelstein. The two Union Jack coats were iconic, as were the Queen Elizabeth II emblems and print. We must mention a bright yellow day-glo shift dress, the sequin bomber with tiger emblem on the back and the 50s coat with colorful painted spots.  The printed “#Chic As Hell” pieces were to die for, including the pink overcoat, a dramatic black & white floor length number and the plastic raincoat look. We found the hot pink printed tights to be a fond flashback and nod to fantastical pop art designer Stephen Sprouse! And lastly, we must not forget the print of the punk with text on his forehead, “Libertine No Future”.  Undoubtedly, we see the brightest of futures for the Libertine label.

A FASHION DEMONSTRATION!

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 it’s 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 track suits. 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.  http://ilovelibertine.com

APPLIQUE´S GALORE!

What don’t we love about Libertine? We were dazzled by the Spring/Summer 2016 collection shown during New York Fashion Week. Libertine creative Johnson Hartig gave us appliqués galore! The whimsical patches were thrown on everything, including coats, dresses, and a dramatic cape. There was a gorgeous long, green evening coat overloaded with appliqués, as well as a too cute white jacket shown with skinny cigarette pants. The overall feel of the collection had a sixties/seventies vibe, but with a Libertine twist. Hartig gave us both men’s and women’s silver sequined tracksuits, which shimmered down the runway, as if disco balls had been brought to life. There was a trio of printed flowing kaftans that will  demand attention at any hip, summer pool party. Chunky, neon chain links adorned clothing, bracelets and shoes.  And then there was the unforgettable chain link vest that closed the show. However, our very favorite look had to be the “Spaghetti Suit” that had appliqués which consisted of forks with beaded dangling spaghetti. Delicious! It left us craving more Libertine.
