The Show: Libertine
The Theme: With a Rebel Yell, Punk Lives On
The Color Palette: Black, Pink, Yellow, Red, Blue and White
The Collection’s Signature, Standout Look:The exhibit at The Met may have ended, but punk continues to be an inspiration for designers such as Libertine this season. Drawing on punk’s do-it-yourself credo, there were many pieces from jackets to dresses that showcased bejeweled skull motifs and cheeky phrases scattered throughout the collection. One white coat in particular featured Vivienne Westwood’s iconic punk print of Queen Elizabeth, while a bedazzled white dress sparkled underneath. With bright shades of yellow and pink popping out from the standard black, this collection featured the lighter side of punk, creating a rebellious wardrobe that many will have fun adopting.
The Show: Diesel Black Gold

The Collection’s Signature, Standout Look: Designer Andreas Melbostad has created the perfect wardrobe for tough urbanites everywhere, giving fresh updates on staples such as denim and leather while infusing color into his signature all black aesthetic. Leather jackets and dresses were embellished with grommets, studs, and mirrors that contrasted nicely with softer pieces from silk camisoles and handkerchief hemmed skirts and dresses. You don’t have to live in a bustling concrete jungle to want a piece of this cool yet easy to wear collection.
