Libertine - 2004

Johnson Hartig and Cindy Greene launched their collaborative clothing label, Libertine, in fall 2001, citing diverse influences including romantic literary icons, skateboard culture and Brooks Brothers. The design duo's bi-coastal collaboration transforms vintage castoffs into contemporary clothes for men and women. Libertine's signature pieces incorporate avant-garde elements, such as frayed seams and macabre graphics, to create a sophisticated, edgy aesthetic.

To produce Libertine's sometimes ironic and always exquisite clothing, Los Angeles-based designer and actor Hartig hunts for vintage clothing at off-the-the-beaten-path locales across America. After deconstructing and retailoring each garment, Hartig sends his creations to New York, where vocalist and graphic designer Greene uses heat transfer techniques to adorn each piece with 19th Century images. The pair's shared vision and complementary craftsmanship result in Libertine's uniquely aggressive style.
