Tibi designer Amy Smilovic envisions spring with a nod to 1980s style, or its un-style, according to Smilovic. For the designer, that period was obviously an energetic era, when fashion wasn’t so prescriptive and serious. Her goal this season was to create something less about perfection and more about authenticity. Her suiting and dresses acted like blank canvases that were lightly adorned with colorful PVC corsets, belts, stripes and straps.
The beauty, led by Bobbi Brown and JINsoon, followed suit. Each model’s look was tailor-made to enhance her specific features without detracting from her unique beauty and that of the clothes. The result? Luminous skin with touches of color, hints of lime green, lilac and tangerine, similar to Smilovic’s accents on her sporty separates and power suits.
