LIBERTINE
FALL 2018

We’ve probably said this before, but here we go again…Libertine is hands down our favorite collection to feature every season during New York Fashion Week. Brilliant designer Johnson Hartig is consistently dead on with his LA based hi-end fashion label, catering to fun girls and boys with a bit of extra cash in their wallets.

FADE TO GREY
MILES MONTIERTH

“Fade To Grey” is the name of our latest Ponyboy menswear editorial, a song title from the new romantic band Visage, fronted by style icon Steve Strange. A favorite time period of ours, the late 70s to early 80s proved to be so creative and expressive, from the punk movement to the birth of new wave.

ABASI ROSBOROUGH

LUAR
FALL 2018

Luar is the eclectic, young and really fantastic menswear/womenswear/unisex line that’s designed by the fascinating talent known as Raul Lopez. His Fall 2018 Pieces of Me collection is one of the freshest things we’ve seen in ages with it’s creative cuts and twisted designs.

FENG CHEN WANG
FALL 2018

Enamored is what we are of brilliant designer Feng Chen Wang’s bold menswear statements. Last season we just couldn’t get enough of her “Made In China” collection for SS 2018. And her Fall 2018 season was just as strong with her coming home theme.

WILLY CHAVARRIA
FALL 2018

Menswear designer Willy Chavarria is making bold statements with his dark and masculine collections. Unfortunately, we missed last season’s show at the infamous New York City leather bar, The Eagle – a very strong showing that had people talking. This season’s show dubbed “Believers” was no less powerful.

DAVID HART
F/W 2018

It’s no secret that Ponyboy worships all things from menswear designer David Hart, with his twist on 50s midcentury aesthetic presented in past collections. However, this season Hart made this statement: “This collection is really inspired by the mass exodus of American brands leaving New York to show in Paris.

FENG CHEN WANG

S/S 2018

With a master’s degree in fashion from the prestigious Royal College of Art in London in 2015, we first became aware of the London based menswear designer Feng Chen Wang when the brand was nominated for the LVMH Prize in 2016. In her first New York runway show, the designer paid homage to her home country with “Made In China” emblazoned on many of the looks. Most designers don’t usually boast about that, but Feng Chen was determined to change the negative connotations of her produced in China collection. With the designer’s focus on technical outerwear, we saw futuristic garments that caught our eye in more ways than one. Design touches included ruching, drawstrings, top-stitching and slashes on this primarily athletic line. And what about those fantastic gloves! A quote from the brilliant designer in WWD regarding her inspiration, “The Chinese landscape, with it’s vast rural expanses and vivid expressions of color, inspired a collection which contemporizes China’s luxury heritage.” Feng Chen Wang, a Ponyboy favorite.

GUSTAV VON ASCHENBACH

SPRING 2018

Gustav von Aschenbach is the highly anticipated menswear project created by New York City designer Robert Geller. In usual Geller fashion, the designer did not disappoint. Named after the main character from the book “Death in Venice” by Thomas Mann, Geller created a more accessible and affordable line, taking a break from his usual very stylish and avant-garde collections. Looks were very easy and effortless, something that you could just pull out of the dryer and throw on. But it was far from boring. In fact, we found the simplicity of the boxy and oversized cuts, many shown in monochromatic pairings, to be refreshing, youthful and just beautiful. It all seemed utilitarian, as if one was wearing a uniform or workwear. As always, Geller keeps us watching and wanting more. Photography Alexander Thompson.

PRIVATE POLICY

S/S 2018

Young and hip, Private Policy showed their Spring/Summer 2018 collection called Trinkets during Men’s New York Fashion Week. The design duo, consisting of creative founders Haroran Li and Siying Qu, both graduates of the Parsons School of Design, once again gave us rebellious youth with their vision. Albeit a small collection, Private Policy gives all their guts and glory! This season’s inspiration seemed to be a mix of both cowboy and bondage, or perhaps western punk? Key elements included satin bombers with matching chaps and bondage trousers. The black & white checkerboard look thrown into the mix was a festive element, as well as the Native American jacquard jacket and shorts ensemble, worn by male model of the moment, Jacopo Olmo. And all looks were worn with cowboy boots. But perhaps our favorite look was the incredible trench coat that appeared to be made from plastic deli bags with the classic “Thank You” text. These super fab looks were topped off with fun wigs by Oribe wizard, Kien Hoang, which helped to lend that rebellious “Sprouse” punk feel. Private Policy is one to follow.

DAVID HART

SPRING 2018

Menswear designer David Hart kindly took us on a colorful trip to Cuba with his oh-so-cool collection for Spring 2018. It’s no big secret that we at Ponyboy are big David Hart fans and can never get enough of his terrific vintage inspired clothing. This season we saw beautifully cut linen suits in a great color palette, including mint, salmon and coral. The boldly striped blazer was a fabulous piece, as well as the banana print shirts. He showed two Guayaberas, our favorite being the pastel pink version. And we loved the Ban-lon inspired knits. Accessories included straw hats, wayfarers and silk neck scarves that lent an air of stylish sophistication. Hart knocks out tuxedos so beautifully (which we saw last season), for example, the blue paisley print stunner, also shown in brown. We love when he throws a few women’s looks into the collection. This season he featured a 50s “pipe dreams” print tie top shown with a high waisted trouser. While Hart looks to the past for inspiration, his designs never seem too retro, and always appear to be made for the modern stylish man. Photography Alexander Thompson http://www.davidhartnyc.com/

THEE TEEN-AGED

ALYASHA OWERKA-MOORE

Thee Teen-Aged is the new “bad boy” menswear brand that we stumbled upon from the oh-so-talented Alyasha Owerka-Moore. Alyasha, also known as ‘Aly’, helped launch Phat Farm, the very popular 90s clothing label from record mogul Russel Simmons. He’s also had design stints with Droors Clothing (DC), American Dream Inc., Alphanumeric, Fiberops and now resides as the brand historian for the PF.Flyers sneaker brand. Photography & Videos Connor Wyse.  https://thee-teen-aged.com/  https://www.instagram.com/theeteenaged/?hl=en

PONYBOY:  Aly! You just recently launched a menswear project, Thee Teen-Aged clothing line. How did this all come about?

ALYASHA OWERKA-MOORE:  Thee Teen-Aged has actually lived several lives starting back in 2011. I’d printed some shirts back then and worked with a friend’s company to do a collaborative project. We’d built, cut and sewed samples and then unfortunately, my friend’s company went bankrupt. Later it was launched as a skateboard company and more of just a passion project. In December 2016, I partnered up with some old friends who gave me the opportunity and support to hire a team, and actually build the brand I’d initially wanted it to be. I get to work with a bunch of like-minded and talented friends whom I’ve respected for a long time.

PONYBOY:   What originally caught our attention is the aesthetic behind the line, reminiscent of a 1950s B movie, bad boy teenage delinquency, with a twist of punk thrown in there. We just love it! Tell us about this inspiration?

ALYASHA OWERKA-MOORE:   I’m a big fan of those exact 1950s teenage delinquency films. When I was a kid, my mom hipped me to brands like Fiorucci. In the late 70s and early 80s there was a big revival of 40s & 50s fashion, as well as a reinterpretation of rockabilly, as well as punk taking the piss at the 40s-50s utopic nuclear family. I feel like today we are living in a similar time socially and politically. The name simply means that the things that I do to make me a functioning adult and productive member of society are the exact things I was told to discard to become that. Thee Teen-Aged is actually the anti-midlife crisis.

PONYBOY:   The vintage inspired clothing trend has really exploded over the past few years, primarily menswear and workwear. What makes this label stand out from the other vintage inspired labels?

ALYASHA OWERKA-MOORE:   There are so many brands that do “workwear” well. Perhaps too many. I love workwear, but I’m a black man who grew up in New York City. I don’t personally find any romance in the dustbowl, depression or Jim Crow eras, as much as I respect the clothing and style of those eras. I do find inspiration in the music of those times. In my mind, the world doesn’t need another workwear brand. I like rock ‘n’ roll and city shit. A brand is similar to a person; if you spend your time trying to be everything to everyone, you lose your sense of self and identity. It’s my own opinion, but a brand should have an attitude.

PONYBOY:  Well said! The pieces are made in the USA. In fact, you have a teaser video titled, “Proudly Made By Immigrants in The USA”, obviously a statement against President Trump’s policies. Correct?

ALYASHA OWERKA-MOORE:  Absofuckinglutely right!

PONYBOY:  The staples in the collection seem to be the denim jeans, button-up shirts (love the leopard detail!), jackets and t-shirts. How many pieces do you have in the line so far?

ALYASHA OWERKA-MOORE:   Two jeans. One is a classic stovepipe, and the other is a roomier version of what is contemporarily called a “Slim-straight”. An hbt pant in black and khaki. There’s a flannel Shirt. And a selvedge chambray shop class shirt. A nylon “windbreaker”. Leather riders jacket (called the “Tony Wong” named after the baddest cat in the film The Wanderers.) And six tee shirts.

PONYBOY:   Who are the core members of Thee Teen-Aged project? Are you the main designer or is it a collaborative effort?

ALYASHA MOORE:   Technically, I am the main designer and creative director. However, it is definitely a collaborative effort. Connor Wsye shoots all the photos and video. George Wilson does all of the manufacturing, production management and collaborates on cut and sew design. Jason Adams contributes graphics and design concepts. Brian Awitan manages sales. And Cal Travis Oaks, Tony Bang and Taylor Vinton keep the energy flowing!

PONYBOY:   What can we expect from Thee Teen-Aged in the future? Any plans for a pop-up? Trade shows? Collaborations?

ALYASHA MOORE:   We’ve been toying with the idea of showing at Liberty Fairs / Piti Uomo / Made in USA section. As well as Complex Con and Inspiration. It would be cool to do a pop-up, but I think that a flagship store says so much more. Other than that, keep making things that we dig on.

LIBERTINE

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.

PRIVATE POLICY

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.
