LIBERTINE designer Johnson Hartig is always a font of creativity and his Spring 2013 Collection is evidence that that creativity is still in full force.
Hartig’s forte is recycling vintage clothing, deconstructing it and reinventing it through many means including surface decoration like screen printing and hand painting. This method of design makes Johnson Hartig’s collections as unique as the designer himself.
The LIBERTINE Spring 2013 Collection definitely shows off the designer’s playful side with imaginative decoration, printing and a little politics thrown in for good measure. Bright colors are a key part of the collection from prints and silk screens to hand painted garments, this collection announces “Spring is here it is time to have fun!!”.
The silhouettes were also playful and varied. 1930’s bias cut dresses along with flouncy blouses and skirts gave a lightness to the collection while structured suits gave the collection a sophisticated edge.
All in all, Johnson Hartig has hit another home run with his LIBERTINE Spring 2013 Collection and as always leaves us wondering what he will come up with next!
