Libertine 2014 Collection

The next New York Fashion Week event I attended was the Libertine 2014 Collection at Lincoln Center. The mastermind behind Libertine is creative founder Johnson Hartig who has been in the fashion game for over a decade. Sitting front row in the Pavilion, I spotted legendary photographer Bill Cunningham diagonally across from me with, of course, his blue jacket and a Nikon around his neck.

The collection, including both men’s and women’s designs, had edgy and colorful pieces. An array of patches, such as skulls and crossbones, were seen over blazers and coats, mixed with paint-splattered designs which added to the punk feel of the collection. Most of the male models donned black snap-back caps that read “LIB” in white bold letters, while a few female models wore flashy multicolored tights.

My arachnophobic self wasn’t too fond of the sparkly spider web design covering a light peach coat; I would very much have liked it without the design. My favorite piece was a black coat with short brown fur trim that was completely covered in sparkly silver words. The English major in me also adored the screen printed words over a canary yellow houndstooth coat. The show ended with all the models skipping and smiling down the runway, a sort of “phew, we nailed it” celebratory dance.
