Libertine Spring/Summer 2014

What I enjoy about the Libertine S/S 2014 collection, and really Libertine in general, is the fact that the pieces and looks are ready for the stage.  I welcome the somewhat propagandist aesthetic seen several of the pieces below, and I think that offering a cultural+political statement on the stage, with which wardrobe can help, is a significant part of artistic expression, of course. And placing the queen's face on garments helps, but anytime text is placed on garments it can  be read in a sociopolitical context. Wear your message. See more of the Libertine S/S 2014 collection HERE.

Brut Clothing

Brut has a very cool lookbook and website that features their love of "raw" and strong materials. Brut takes vintage pieces and give them new life, which I think is a commendable project in today's fast-fashion marketplace. I enjoy the vintage military pieces and accessories assembled. See more of the Brut project HERE.
