Runway Report: Libertine Fall 2017 RTW

runway-report-libertine-fall-winter-2017-ready-to-wear-nyfw-1Now that I am finally sitting in an airport headed home after what ended up being a jam packed New York Fashion Week I am going to start playing catch up on reviewing the collections that I have seen. Founder and creative director on Libertine, Johnson Hartig is a club kid at heart and his collections always embody that feeling no matter what the trend of the moment. The punk, anarchist spirit of the Libertine label really rings true in the world we live in right now when science, logic, and intellectual thought are being attacked by the United States government. Hartig even made the joke that his after-party was made possible by Elizabeth Warren, Noam Chomsky, and NASA. Now while the collection itself was not deliberately political that punk movement spirit definitely was. runway-report-libertine-fall-winter-2017-ready-to-wear-nyfw-2When there is so much going on in a collection it can be hard to really break down the collections and appreciate the pieces. There wasn’t so much amazing looks in this collection, though there were a few, but about the individual pieces in those looks. The details of this collection from fur and fringe to fine embroidery and crystal embellishments were so chic, and pictures really just didn’t do the pieces justice. Every look that walked the runway featured some sort of embellishment. My favorite piece from the collection was the black cape (pictured above) which was covered in crystal embellished graffiti. Of the whole collection I saw one dress that I can see on the red carpet. The black shift dress with oversized sequin sleeves covered in red rose embroidery is one thing that I can picture someone like Gwen Stefani wearing on the red carpet. Aside from that I can picture Miley Cyrus and Fergie also incorporating pieces from this collection into their wardrobes. Definitely a collection for the cool, rocker chic and the guy not afraid to stand out. runway-report-libertine-fall-winter-2017-ready-to-wear-nyfw-3
