Mixing prints isn’t for the faint of heart, but the fun-loving hipster Libertine girl has it down to an art. (Rhyme unintended.) If you’re interested in getting in on this seemingly ongoing trend, it’s probably best to follow her cue.
For fall 2012, Johnson Hartig built his Hand Made in America-entitled collection around a palette of mostly royal blue, oxblood, cream, brown, and black with green, gray, and grape peppered in here and there. Dark florals and a variety of vibrant plaids mixed and mingled on the catwalk alongside sparkly sequin embellishments and knit- and lace-overlay. Oversize furs and swing coats were accessorized with big bauble-y beaded necklaces and beautifully busy neon and magenta platform calf-boots. Several pieces were adorned with strategically placed sparkly spherical studs in red, green, blue, and silver hues, including the tights (which very well may prompt us to create our own DIY pair).
Feeling inspired as well? The collection will hit stores this August, but in the meantime, hit up your local thrift shop or raid your Nan’s closet—you’ll surely find something similarly stylish and quite comparable there.
