F/W 2017

New York City designer Georgine Ratelband continues her vision of the uptown girl who enjoys slumming downtown in effortless, luxurious clothes. Or perhaps it’s actually the downtown girl heading uptown? Nonetheless, whichever it was, it worked. The designer sent models down her runway wearing messy black bobbed wigs, adding to that fun-filled night out look. The collection consisted of fabulous metallic slip dresses, lace gowns, and her signature fur pieces, which are always stunners, whether it’s a stole or a coat. Standout looks for this season included a tan belted 70s style coat with extravagant fur collar, as well as the green leopard metallic fur coat and skirt set. Everything was well put together, and not too fussy. The finishing touch was the extraordinary makeup by MAC cosmetics guru Romero Jennings. Photography Alexander Thompson http://www.georgine.com/

F/W 2017

Johnson Hartig is the Los Angeles based designer and founder of the oh so fabulous clothing label Libertine. Shown twice a year during New York Fashion Week, Hartig’s collection is the one that we are always most excited to cover. Perhaps it’s the explosion of prints and emblems on colorful clothing, as well as the intriguing mix of punk references on high fashion clothing. Or perhaps it’s because each individual piece of clothing is a thought out piece of wearable pop art. But whatever the reasons, we are extremely ecstatic for our interview with the brilliant Hartin. Photography Alexander Thompson http://ilovelibertine.com/

PONYBOY:  Johnson, we’re big fans of the Libertine label and it’s always a Ponyboy favorite to cover during New York Fashion Week! Please tell us about your most recent collection for Fall/Winter 2017.

JOHNSON HARTIG:  Thank you! We’re big fans of Ponyboy! Our Fall/Winter 17 collection was inspired by everything from Romanian gypsies to Ann Getty interior design. Always art inspirations, as art is nearest and dearest to us. With my art background it’s little wonder… it was a really luxurious collection, and quite divine and rich we think…

PONYBOY:   Libertine collections are always such a fun event – so young and filled with colors, patterns and textures. Where do you get your inspiration from?

JOHNSON HARTIG:   Travel, literature (the pop art word print was Robert Burns’ “Oh were my love yon Lilac fair” done in these intoxicatingly bright saturated colors), nature, history, luxuriousness, beauty, punk rock, no wave, and classical music…all the usuals…

PONYBOY:   Each show is a visual explosion of creativity. And we can never decide our favorite Libertine looks each season (those punk Union Jack pieces from Spring/Summer 2017 are always in our dreams!). But offhand, for this collection, we loved the pieces with holographic paillettes, the full leopard looks, and the “Neat Neat Neat” trench, which we think might be a nod to The Damned song? Oh and we mustn’t forget the black coat with the silver beading and hands that gave us Art Deco/Schiaparelli visions. What would you say are your own personal favorites from this collection?

JOHNSON HARTIG:   I love the “neat, neat, neat” crystal effect, yes inspired by the Damned, also a cool “Birthday party” sweatshirt, and the all over leopard spotty looks DRIVE ME CRAZY –  so fucking divine…men’s clothes are so easy, women are more complicated…

PONYBOY:  There seems to be consistent pop art/punk overtones in your collections, which is something that we go crazy for. Would you say this comes from your formative years?

JOHNSON HARTIG:  Yes, of course! I was a product of the late 70s/80s and there was a thriving punk rock scene in Los Angeles and Orange County. It was such a free time to express one’s creativity through clothing, and especially being in art school at the time – never could beat that time – the kids of today have NO idea how to express themselves – they aren’t confident enough, there’s too much self analyzing now…it’s a shame really…

PONYBOY:  We’re enamored with the pop art “lettering” print on Looks #16 & 17 – that mink is just fantastic! Did you design that print?

JOHNSON HARTIG:   Yes, I designed it. As I said, it’s the English romantic poet Robert Burn’s poem done in poppy colors….that mink coat is over 600 pieces of intarsia pieces – our furrier called us in a rage when she received the pictures of what I wanted and said she could never do it, then did, and it is her favorite thing she’s ever made now…

PONYBOY:   Some of the very dramatic one of a kind coats and capes that are shown on your runway each season are extensively covered with embellishments/beading, which must be very labor intensive to create. Can you tell us on average how long it might take to make a piece like this?

JOHNSON HARTIG:   Some of them weeks, some of them a day, some hours, and in a great flurry of inspiration, if I’m in the studio working alone, with a great classical aria playing, maybe just minutes…inspiration is elusive, and can’t be predicted…

PONYBOY:   We’re big vintage collectors and have been for years, since high school actually. And we’ve never stopped collecting! The Libertine label is not only ready to wear, but also an interesting mix of vintage with embellishments. Would you say that vintage plays a big part in your life as well?

JOHNSON HARTIG:   Vintage is all I wore when I was a young man, we all did, everyone in art school then did…the more outrageous the better…and in fact my Grandmother and Great Aunt Birdie used to take me to thrift stores when I was a very young child – they loved it so much…they used to wear one pair of shoes into the store and wear another pair they liked better out – their reasoning was – they’re all old anyway – who cares as long as they leave a pair…any wonder I have such a rebellious contrary spirit?!

PONYBOY:  You are a West Coast based label. Do you have any thoughts of opening a boutique in Los Angeles?

JOHNSON HARTIG:  We are opening a free standing Libertine shop in the new Fred Segal store opening in the fall on Sunset Boulevard. That’s as close as we’ll get to our own store I think – we’ll leave that to the pros….

PONYBOY:  A rather sad thought, a large chunk of your Spring/Summer 2016 collection went missing, thanks to UPS. This is such a devastating loss, as your pieces are like works of art. Were the pieces ever recovered?

JOHNSON HARTIG:  Nope, never saw that box again…I know it’s sitting in some warehouse somewhere just waiting for us patiently …what a cadre of divine things just sitting there in a dark box somewhere …

CARLOS CAMPOS

F/W 2017

Honduras born menswear designer Carlos Campos gave us an intriguing mix of colorful menswear pieces in summer tones for his Fall/Winter 2017 menswear collection, including pink and baby blue. But why not go against the flow and do things differently? He opened his collection with a terrific two-piece color-block set on male model of the moment Diego Villarreal . Ponyboy favorites included the elongated varsity jackets, a striped shirt and trouser set, cropped trousers, and the mustard jumpsuit that tied at the waist. Perhaps the strongest look in our eyes was the interestingly cut grey overcoat worn over a black & mustard print shirt and trouser set. The designer showed a few women’s looks this season on the runway, all with a masculine feel. Campos’ trademark Latin American flair makes him a standout on the NYFW men’s runways.

JOHN VARVATOS

F/W 2017

Menswear designer John Varvatos gave us what he termed “a refined rebellion” in the collection he showed for Fall/Winter 2017 at the Royalton’s Diamond Horseshoe Theater in New York City. This signature rock ‘n’ roll style collection was particularly luxe, sleek, stylish and modern–what every young man with that rock edge would want to wear when running around for a fun filled night in the big city. There were beautifully tailored overcoats and velvet tuxedo jackets, as well as super slim cut suits, all in rich dark colors. And it wouldn’t be a Varvatos collection without motorcycle jackets and pants in amazing leathers and skins. The fingerless gloves and scarves were added touches for that rockstar look. Both leopard prints featured in jackets, coats and shoes were simply stunning. Genius was the long leopard print coat modeled by rapper Machine Gun Kelly, a perfect closure to his show, giving off that bad-boy Sid Vicious/Billy Idol feel.

F/W 2017

Design duo Haoran Li and Siying Qu’s Private Policy label is at the forefront of edgy downtown New York City fashion. We watched closely when they launched the label in 2015, and for their Fall/Winter 2017 menswear presentation, our love affair was quickly rekindled. With punk overtones and lots of layers, nothing was boring here. Each piece seemed very well thought out in regards to construction and styled to perfection. Track suits and bombers appeared to be layered with sections that could snap open or snap off, creating very interesting looks. Some track pants had that tear-away element and could convert into shorts. Pants were worn high-waisted, cropped and wide. Coats were boxy and hard edged. Interesting touches included long metal chains adorned on baseball caps and jackets, as well as bondage strap and belt details. The showstopper was surely the patchwork motorcycle jacket with matching trousers constructed from flags. And we also were enamored with the yellow jumpsuit worn with a plastic headpiece, giving us flashbacks of Devo! It’s young talent like this duo that keep us hopeful in a world of homogenized fashion.

DAVID HART

F/W 2017

New York City menswear designer David Hart gave us his interpretation of red carpet fashion with his “Award Season” presentation for Fall/Winter 2017. Never boring, yet always classic, the designer showed 8 fantastic evening wear looks for men consisting of tuxedos, as well as one exquisitely tailored women’s tux. His take on what a man should wear for a formal night out is both refreshing and modern. We loved the red tartan look, as well as the blue tartan tux with ruffled shirt on model Max von Isser. He even threw in some turtleneck looks with the jackets, giving off an almost casual 70s vibe. One can surely imagine Hart’s tuxedos on a red hot, young Hollywood actor, as well as an East Coast Park Avenue socialite. Only someone as talented as Hart could succeed at designing a stylish pastel pink tuxedo while avoiding that tacky Al’s Formal Wear look. Photography Alexander Thompson http://www.davidhartnyc.com/
