Libertine Fall Winter 2022-2023 New York Fashion Week. Review by Eleonora de Gray, Editor-in-Chief of RUNWAY MAGAZINE.
This New York Fashion Week has schedule full… maybe half full…. or probably almost empty. I meant New York Fashion Week has schedule is completely full of emerging designers, you can’t even differentiate one from another, as if they all came from the same school. Half full of the designers who have some ideas, seen somewhere already, but still… And almost empty by creative designers who presented or about to present their collection this Fall Winter 2022-2023 season.
Johnson Hartig, designer from Los Angeles, founder of brand Libertine, is the one who belongs to this few creative designers who present this season in New York. He is not just an exceptional or talented, he is a great sunshine and genuine person, who drives his art all around, and surprises everybody and himself.
Johnson Hartig’s curiosity drives him for more than 20 years to jump from time to time, from culture to culture, mix and match. Perhaps he is just a big kid, who feels free to play. Perhaps his feeling of liberty gives him jolt, and that is how the brand “Libertine” was born in 2001 in this creative kaleidoscope.
This Libertine Fall Winter 2022-2023 collection is another story of sunshine and rainbows.
