2011 Fall New York Fashion Week: Tibi

Fall 2011 New York Fashion Week: Tibi

Tibi began with a series of polished, monochromatic minimal looks shot through with dashes of hot pink. It was like a wink from designer Amy Smilovic, as if to say, "we're all still girls here." The show took a sensible approach to dressing, suggesting a clear delineation between day dressing — Tibi's cool minimalism — and eveningwear, which showed a looser, flirtier side of that chic city girl via metallic lace, jacquard, ethereal appliques, and rococo prints. The daytime color palette of taupe, cream, and gray had a soothing sophistication, reminding us that minimalism isn't all hard lines and slick hair. In keeping with one of the major trends of Fall, hemlines hovered around the calves, and while a gold lace full-skirted dress would look fantastic as a full-length gown, Smilovic knows her Tibi girl would prefer the freedom and fun of something tea-length.
