FASHION designer Johnson Hartig's dresser is a tableau fit for an FBI profiler. The top of his antique highboy sports an incense holder rimmed with tiny skulls, a padlock and a Victorian glass case containing a taxidermy chipmunk. Nearby, on a Taschen book catalog, lie a black twill bow tie, a packet of Listerine breath strips and a pair of steel handcuffs. Hmmm. Suave and provocative, this casual collision of objects is pure Hartig.

The Los Angeles County Museum of Art is rolling out a new art-meets-fashion project that has some of Los Angeles' top fashion talent designing limited-edition garments inspired by artwork in the museum's permanent collection. Dubbed Wear LACMA, the fruits of the collaboration with local designers will be sold through LACMA's museum store, with all proceeds benefiting the museum. The first designers in what LACMA expects to be an ongoing program are Libertine's Johnson Hartig and Gregory Parkinson, whose creations will be available starting next month.

THE announcement that Libertine would become the seventh designer partnership in Target's Go International program could be construed as only one of two things: The end of western civilization as soccer moms know it, with Libertine's torrent of skulls and punk-Victoriana iconography infiltrating the blindingly cheery halls of this mass retailer.

It has taken a while for the New York establishment to embrace L.A. as a serious fashion center. But things are looking up. Last week, the Council of Fashion Designers of America held a cocktail party to get to know the design community here. Invited guests included designers Jenni Kayne, Louis Verdad, Nony Tochterman, Gela Taylor of Juicy Couture, Eduardo Lucero, Libertine's Johnson Hartig and Cindy Greene, Kevan Hall and Jade Howe.

The vendors on Santee Alley are going underground with the good stuff -- the $300 knockoff designer handbags so close to the real thing, they could fool an Hermes salesgirl. Most of the bags displayed out in the open on downtown L.A.'s most infamous retail street (the No. 1 hub for counterfeit fashion goods in the U.S., according to the LAPD), are half-hearted, vinyl versions of "It" bags, crafted on the cheap in Chinese factories.
