The Liberum Arbitrium FW 2012 collection is dark and moody, drawing the audience in to the world of macabre fashion. The black and white color palette plays off of a good versus evil motif, bringing character and narrative to each independent piece. The line is driven by silhouette, using drapery and layers to establish a ghostly compilation of texture and sculptural shape. The menswear leans on slouchy cuts and open necks. Memorable pieces include the fading-gradient cardigan, the open back long sleeved tee and the long zippered cloak.
The company is driven by the theme and complexity of good versus evil. Liberum arbitrium is defined on the OED as “a faculty of reason and will, by which good is chosen with the assistance of grace, or evil, when grace is not there to assist.” The inspiration is evident in the FW 2012 collection.
