Thank you @neimanmarcus for the honor of designing a cake for fashion line Libertine’s 20th anniversary and designer Johnson Hartig! ????
In honor of the milestone, I designed this cake around Johnson Hartig’s beginnings and @officiallibertine 2001 founding. (Fancy way of saying I dove deep into my research and for a short time became a stalker. ????)
Hartig’s collections include cashmere sweaters covered in glittery sequin skulls. A silk wrap dress in a crazy quilt print. Jackets embellished with hand-sewn appliqués and crystals and bon mots galore! (A cake designer’s dream! Or at least mine! ????)
Translating Libertine’s witty, soulful irreverence into a cake I included elements of the Los Angeles-based brand's earlier collections, such as Hartig's signature Toiles de Nantes collaged fabric, and the skull-and-crossbones and elements of his equally exuberant LA home layered with color and texture. ?
Everything from the cake, to the cake board, and even the cake stand was custom made to reflect not only the brand, but the designers personal maximalist aesthetic. ????
From the pattern selection for the “quilt”designed on @procreate, to the isomalt brooches, to the cake board paralleling the tile work and wallpaper in his colorful home, to the element I love the most — the hand strung red coral necklaces made of modeling chocolate, everything was a nod to Johnson Hartig and 20 years of Libertine. ?
Hartig is a master of color and layers, creating wearable art for women and men not afraid of making a statement — Just like this cake. ????
Congratulations @johnsonhartig and happy 20th @officiallibertine! ????
