Monday Muse: A.L.C. Goes Earthy & Opulent For Fall 2017

L.A.’s A.L.C. has always been about real women. The label’s focus has always been on the everyday, not the world of red carpets and special occasion dressing. That didn’t change this season, but designer Andrea Lieberman did up the ante in other ways. For fall 2017, the clothes she showed were done up in luxe fabrics and rich leathers, giving her A.L.C. fans — Gwen Stefani included — plenty to add to their collection of tailored staples, jumpsuits, and statement-making knits.

“I wanted to create some real depth with the colors and prints, but also be quite real with how women dress,” Lieberman told Vogue.

She translated that M.O. via sleek leather pieces, like kick-flare pants with a sweet crop, paired with rich, boiled wool in deep, dark colors. Together, it made for a very polished look that retained the brand’s downtown cool. It was polished without looking too pretty, which is a delicate balance that Lieberman handles with aplomb season after season.

Fur was also a major focus. Lieberman paired it with dresses, but the coolest formula involved her go-to tracksuit with the addition of a luxe topper. Sneakers grounded the looks, too, giving a laid-back, cool vibe to more prim outfits such as a turtleneck worn under a parochial school dress.

A.L.C.’s latest offering also had a few denim alternatives. While it’s a tough sell for anyone to give up their blue jeans, Lieberman’s twill pants, with high waists or lace-up flies, may be in heavy rotation this fall.

“I think women are always looking for alternatives,” Lieberman added. “We look for new things we don’t have, things that feel new and fresh and speak to a different part of us.”

Expect to see the monochromatic looks and fur toppers all over A.L.C.’s loyal fans, celebrity and normals alike. With so many options to choose from, everyone will be able to add their own personality to the looks — and Lieberman wouldn’t have it any other way.
