Every movie has a rebel -- you know, that guy or girl who doesn't follow social and fashion decorum. They're raw. They're honest. And they're effortlessly cool.
In the fashion world, that figure is Libertine. Every Fashion Week, the L.A. based brand throws out all "normal" conventions, ushering in avant-garde punk styles, pushing the norms when it comes to runway makeup, and ending the show with an in-your-face protest.

This year was no different. The mastermind behind the collection, Jonhson Hartig, upped the ante on fall and winter dressing, by incorporating larger-than-life embellishments. Everything from burnt cigarettes to giant block letters proclaiming it was "Time for Love", were used as inspiration for the signature patchwork, and every piece uniquely showcasing its own version of rocker flair. Even runway beauty was taken to the next level; models donned manicures with an appliqué of faux-fur. (Dare we say, this is the boldest beauty move we've seen on the catwalk since stiletto nails.)

The surprising part of the show was just how wearable the whole collection was. Yes, these are not your typical winter staples. But they have the basis of everything you could ever want: peacoats with flawless tailoring, floor-length gowns with flattering silhouettes, and an expert level of artistry and craftsmanship in each look. The sparkly and unexpected accents were really just the sartorial icing on top.
Let the collection serve as proof that being a rebel never looked so good.
