Monday Muse: California Inspires A.L.C. Fall 2016

“I was very much feeling California,” Lieberman said. “I was just kind of happy where I was, honestly.”

For the fall collection, the designer focused, like so many other California-based designers, on laid-back luxury. What did that mean for A.L.C.? Expect her clients (Lieberman has worked extensively as a stylist), such as Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lawrence and more, to be wearing plunging dresses with cutouts, tissue-thin turtlenecks and shearling jackets. If that seems like a lot to take in, that’s because A.L.C. isn’t focused on a specific theme or inspiration. Instead, the collection was full of things that shoppers — famous or not — would want to wear. And since shoppers from all over, be it Brooklyn, Silverlake or anywhere in-between, Lieberman noted that many of the pieces could be layered and that pieces were designed specifically for certain markets. So, don’t expect to see those shearling coats out here — they’ll be street style fodder on the East Coast, however.

Knit dresses — the kind that Jennifer Lawrence favors — will be a hit on both coasts, especially since they’re made with some sort of curve-sculpting magic. And because L.A. will always be synonymous with a certain kind of matching set, Lieberman offered up her take on the tracksuit. A.L.C.’s is a far cry from Juicy’s, with ruffles and slim, pleated pants, but it maintained that air of luxe activewear that’s fit for anywhere but the gym. Fringe made an appearance, too, and though Coachella is a year away now, there’s no time like he present to stock up on one-of-a-kind takes on festival mainstays. And now that Lieberman’s got an bigger staff, she can focus on the creative side of her fashion label, which means there’s plenty more where this came from.
