Spring 2023 marks 15 years in business for ALC, and Andrea Lieberman has her label’s mantra down pat: “I say it every season, but we make real clothes for real women that have real lives.” Swerve In Our Glory Are And New AEW World Tag Team Champions Home Decor Poster Canvas, That doesn’t mean the clothes have stayed the same—2012’s skin-tight pants and pastel blazers have given way to today’s neutral-toned slacks and itty bitty tops—but the goal is still to provide attractive ready-to-wear that can be worn to the office, on a date, or anywhere in between. Lieberman speaks to the customer, rather than to the capital-F fashion industry.
“I remember starting the company, and it was so odd: Everyone thought that us not having a show was a really big deal. But in many ways it was never my intention because I was always customer focused,” she says. For spring, Lieberman is particularly focused on textures: the heavy linen, the pleated vegan leather, and the multicolored crochet dresses. One of the strongest pieces is a short sleeved caramel dress with a peek-a-boo pleated skirt, a modern twist on the safari style. Unexpected—not trendy—and classic, it’s ALC at its best.
