Loving Libertine

[From Radar Magazine] Attention lovers of mass-market clothing! Target's GO line has announced that the next duo to collaborate on a capsule collection for the bull's-eye will be Cindy Greene and Johnson Hartig of Libertine. Best known for clothes that would look fabulous if they didn't have all that crap silk-screened on them, Libertine's designs will be available for just two months, starting in mid-July
So, this collection should be interesting considering the popularity of the last Go International Collection: Proenza Schouler. As the tiny promo pics suggest this collection is going to be really different from any other designers they've shown before. Not many of their signature screened tees in the collection but a lot of eclectic sort of androgynous designs. My favorite pieces are the striped shirtdress, embroidered shorts, and ruffle blouses. I wonder if the public will accept this collection seeing that is not as mainstream as the others. I'm not sure how much I like the collection, I think their runway pieces are more interesting.
