Bitten by SJP might be disappointing, but the first images from Libertine for Target are out, and they’re fantastic.
The line launches this August and includes a striped t-shirt dress in green/aqua or red/pink, several skull print sweaters, and embroidered bags and tees with bugs and tree branches. The clothes combine Victorian motifs with sharp, girly shapes like the points of A-line skirts and the diagonal slopes of cardigans against a blouse. The clothes are the color of Crayola.
We remember the movie Seamless, when Anna Wintour compared Libertine’s Johnson Hartig and Cindy Greene to Galliano. We think maybe they’ve departed from that early prediction, going for less art and more commerce, and far too much fun.
Next up: Chip and Pepper launch their first diffusion line, with J.C. Penny, later this year.
