Pre – Fall 2018

 

You can get away with wearing a sweatshirt one day, a crisp suit the next, and a long floral dress later in the week and never feel like you’re doing too much. That’s good news for Amy Smilovic, whose Tibi girl is just as game to try a baggy plaid trouser as she is a wild print, a raw denim trench, or a kitten-heeled cowboy boot, all of which featured prominently in the new Pre-Fall collection.

Like much of fashion right now, there were hints of Demna Gvasalia’s influence here in the blown-up paisleys and checkered duffels. But the bigger message was one about simple, no-fuss dressing. A few looks were made up of just two or three items: See the pink V-neck sweater and cherry pants, the lilac sherpa and jeans, and the drapey sweatshirt tucked into a pencil skirt. Those items will be palate cleansers when they hit stores next summer. They also helped highlight a few new shoes, a category Smilovic is excited to expand. Along with the cowboy boots, there were jewel-toned pointy pumps—high ones!—and PVC sandals to change into when you’re on the go.

Spring Summer 2018

 

If you’re sick of reading about fashion’s ’90s and early-’00s revival, you’ll be happy to know that several designers are looking even further back this season—to the ’80s! The decade arguably has more fun stuff to work with too: the colors, the glitz, the excess, the music. . . . Tibi’s Amy Smilovic was particularly inspired by the street style of the ’80s, when New Yorkers weren’t so precious about their outfits and didn’t wear “prescribed” looks. Much of her Spring ’18 collection felt almost un-styled as a result. The best looks were comprised of easy basics: a sweater and pedal pushers, high-rise trousers and a tank, a flowing dress and sandals. The interest came from the strange, saturated colors: lime green, lilac, and tangerine.
