Libertine Spring 2013 Runway Review: The Spring 2013 Libertine collection was a like stepping through the looking glass into a colorful world of smashed kalidescopes and coming out covered in fairy dust! A fun mix of ethereal and funky, vintage boudoir and quirky, tame and wild. I think this may cater more to our Western edge girls over the East Coast black-out brigade, but I say work these colors wherever you can, because it truly makes fashion fun!
There is every color under the rainbow, and they are all swirled together into this fantastic mess, with huge prints and clunky accessories it’s a real bohemian chic statement kaer for Spring. I love the dresses and the lightweight layering. And the kooky socks with strappy heels. The somewhat Parisian boudoir look brings a very feminine attitude and softness to something that could have gone terribly wrong if not executed so finely.
If the collection overwhelms you as a whole, let’s just pull out some styling ideas – the Spring light layering, the accessories stacked together, and maybe it’s just a key piece or two you puirchase rather than attempting to re-vamp your entire look. — Alix Kivlin
