OMG FTW?!! Intense black eyeliner, popping color everywhere, Brit icons (particularly the Queen Elizabeth II, herself), fuzzy neon shoes, sparkles ... lots of NEON. It was all too cool for school. Oh, right - yep, that was also the cosmetic line paired up with the show, Too Cool for School - which is rad, IMO. Irreverent, kitschy boldness are the main words that come to mind when thinking of this show and collection by Libertine.
Get prepared for LOTS of color ... NOW.
I wish I could have gotten a better angle for more and better footage of the show. As the models weaved around the catwalk, it was a visual feast - particularly when (a male model I had not seen backstage) appeared wearing only a top paired with fuzzy neon slippers, a shoulder bag, and - get this - a pair of 'tighty-whities' adorned on the crotch with, what appeared to be a small sequined open mouth (similar to the Rolling Stones logo), spewing white beaded fringe. Scandalous. A bit of humorous shock value can create a splash amongst the fashionable crowd - I'm still talking about it.
