Libertine's Fall 2017 was a wild ride at New York Fashion Week

"During the dark days we're going through politically, we've managed to build one of the lightest, brightest collections we've ever done. It's a mash up of Romanian Gypsie, Ann Getty interiors, Handel's "Xerxes" and pop art, mixed up in the way Libertine does best..." said Libertine founder Johnson Hartig.

And they mixed it up the Libertine way at New York Fashion Week. Libertine's Fall 2017 ready-to-wear collection was all about wild leopard prints, colorful fringes, metallic materials and neon colors. The bright but plain white event space was Libertine's canvas -- Hartig's eclectic designs splashed on the runway.

Upbeat music sounded the room, while models donned heavy eye makeup and a variety of textures at once -- from cotton, denim and wool. All of Hartig's designs were embellished with neon jewels that spelled out different phrases, like 'love', 'strong women' and profanity.

Libertine's prolific collection was dressed up with different patchwork. Coats, bombers and suits were heavily decorated in emoji-like decorations and rhinestones. Florals, astrological symbols and animals adorned coats while bright neon fringes covered the models' face.

Libertine's ready-to-wear line lived up to its hype. Much to be expected, Hartig took us for a wild ride with his new Fall 2017 line. Scroll through to see all of Libertine's looks:
