A dance party broke out at the finale of Libertine’s Fall 2015 show, and it was the perfect way to show off such as bright and lively collection.
The collection, which focused heavily on outwear, got inspiration from surrealism, youthfulness and India. Our favorite piece was the light blue fur collar coat with a Dali-esque landscape with a punk twist, that was also featured on a leather bomber jacket, and a men’s leather jacket and hoodie.
The coats were the highlight of the collection, with designs ranging from cobalt blue coat embellished with silver birds to a black cape with French words embroidered in metallic thread. The brightly colored embroidered dresses inspired by India added finese to the runway, but it was the accessories such as the crystal ball clutches and gold thread manicures that grabbed out attention.
One sweater featured a telephone and the words “Hello Lovely” patch while a panda made its way onto a men’s sweatshirt. To accompany the models down the runway, the playlist was a mix of Marky Mark, Jingle Bells and classical music, as if someone’s iPod was just left on shuffle, but in a good way.
It was slightly cartoonish, but that is what we love about Libertine. Fashion should be fun, and Libertine did a great job of reminding us of that.
