New York Fashion Week
I find this collection unusually impressive. Libertine is expanding on a new aesthetic; the over-sized and exaggerated proportions of brilliantly constructed coats and sweaters. The metal detailing on every piece adds, simultaneously, a punk edge and a glamorous sparkle. The monogram pieces are brilliant and in-your-face, and just chic enough to be reminiscent of Louis Vuitton in a small way; except maybe meeting Westwood halfway. Libertine is liberation.
