Libertine’s Johnson Hartig showed early in the week, and was our first tip-off to Fall’s mad-for-plaid trend. He took an artsy approach to the theme by hand-painting the pattern onto nearly every look in his collection. He worked mostly in an acid-bright color palette (another one of fall’s big stories) and layered his grid patterns on top of one another. Sounds wacky but it worked beautifully.
