Libertine AW16: Fashion With A Message!

Libertine AW16: Fashion With A Message!

One of my favorite shows this season was LIBERTINE AW 16’. I truly love when designers use their platform to deliver a positive message! Several models walked the runway with signs with calls-to-action like: “Join the Revolution”, #SaveThePlanet, and #BuyMoreLibertine. Ok, maybe they’re not all altruistic…

Taking place at Skylight Clarkson Square; much of the audience was decked in Libertine — that is always a sign of a good show.

As a huge fan of jackets, furs, and dramatic patterns, I instantly fell in love with every look. Libertine displayed just that — neon color trim patterns covered the runway. I also adored the statement patchwork. Patchwork peacoat was a dominant theme on the runway as were embroidered silks and sequins!

What I learned at Libertine:

  • Don’t be afraid to step outside the box and wear color in the winter. Neon and bright color fur will be huge for fall!
  • Peacoats are no longer plain — patchwork peacoats are the new new.
  • Sporty and elegant looks combined can actually work!
  • Always deliver a message with your look.

My favorite look was the multi colored sequin track jacket and track pants. Another favorite look was a embroidered parker with neon fur trim. I also adored the black cape with patches on the back reading “Time For Love”

Last but not least, the finalé was the best part of the show. Contrary to a usual finalé walk; the models danced down the runway, holding signs & celebrating. Just great energy to end the show. My favorite part is when the designer walked out carrying a “Buy More Libertine” sign. 🙂
