One of the things I adore about attending launch parties, is the introduction to some of the hottest new brands, and the inside scoop on what to expect from them for the upcoming season(s.) Showing up to these social gatherings held exclusively for media, influencers, fashion stylists, and trend trailblazer’s in the growing fashion, and art scene – as a celebrity stylist gives you a bit of an edge, as one of the first to know what’s next. I love to gain access to the latest, and greatest labels in the market, and to gather amongst the stylish crowd, and enjoy custom cocktails along with obvious other social perks!
Thanks to the recent Officina Bernardi X Fred Segal launch event, I discovered LA’s very own luxury label: Libertine and I can’t say enough great things about it!
The Fred Segal social gala was filled with signature cocktails, and ridiculously amazing racks of designer brands, and I just couldn’t keep my eyes off of LIBERTINE in particular! You can view select pieces from the collections that I marveled over below.
LIBERTINE collection is derived of artistic, whimsical, and avant-garde elements that will pull you in at first glance. I adore the Keith Haring influences and the bold placements of the graphics, colors and prints. It reminds me a bit of the British punk rock movement of the 8o’s, and juxtaposition with this level of tailoring isn’t something you see often. And on women’s wear that can be easily confused for androgynous clothing, isn’t a common theme that you see. LIBERTINE is an effortless crossover brand truly set apart in risk, influence, and edge. And I am still fanning myself over the unique bejeweled embellishments that you’ll find neatly adorned on top of pieces unexpected. The gorgeous tailoring, and the hand-sewn body chains woven with the finest details, and neatly placed on top of the jackets really blew me away! The collection itself is outrageous, and equally exclusive to those with a sense of individualism and authority on knowing how to capitalize on styling their clients with a brand commanding of star power, and with a vibe of true authority.
At last, my most favorite piece from the collection that I couldn’t find in-store. 🙂 You can get it online here.
Pop on over to Sunset Plaza’s new landmark “It-boutique” that is the legendary Fred Segal and explore. If you are not familiar with the trailblazing history of discovering the hottest brands in LA, its time you jump on their retail radar! And for first dibs on the ridiculously incredible LIBERTINE collection, live in the flesh, you’ll find an entire leased-like mini boutique nestled inside Fred Segal, that gives nearly 400 square feet of rack space strictly for the indulgence of LIBERTINE lovers, you’ve got to trust my advice and go inside to see it for yourself, to truly believe.
I humbly thank you for your readership, and for following my wild journey. There’s so much bubbling in the pipeline that I might just burst. But until then, at least promise you will stop by again in a few days, and that you won’t you won’t forget this experience. I wouldn’t want you to miss what’s next! I’ve got something so substantial and so relevant to the progression of where fashion is headed, that if you don’t know the history… you will want to get the backstory.
For a quick history lesson, in order to sustain the hands of time, the most powerful fashion labels that survive the force of change choose to reinvent the wheel and become leaders in innovation and create new archetypes for the rest to follow. Stay tuned for a Celebration and 80-Year Anniversary Launch for one of the greatest denim lines in fashion history to remerge.
See you in a few days,
