Amy Smilovic's Spring '17 lineup is quintessentially on brand for Tibi. What I mean by that is you'll find the collection's staples — minimalist silhouettes and contemporary crops — are pieces that let you move and do things. Stylish flourishes are present but done with restraint, like a ruffled neckline on a silk, free-flowing tunic or a floral print to brighten up an understated cut.
This season, Amy tells the same story and appeals to the same customer, but she's inviting us past the pared-down looks of Fall. The highlights are the nipped in waists and layered corsets over dresses and button-downs that are decidedly more feminine than seasons past. The color palette, too, is a bright spot, with shades of robins egg blue, green, citrus, and red — an uncomplicated collection painted with a saturated palette. Wider crops are traded for fresh proportions that put the emphasis not just on the waist but on exaggerated pant legs, shoulders, and oversize sleeves. Fitted skirts and crop tops feature prominently, giving a sexier tilt than we're used to from the brand but all still crafted with the same Tibi DNA.
