TIBIFall Winter 2014 New York

Runway Review
2/9/2014 Natalie Cantell

Tibi’s AW14 offering was nothing short of satisfying.

Dramatic silhouettes embodied the suggestion of Smilovic's disenchanted Amish girl, made all the more convincing by the center-parts of long haired models sporting a single corn row.

Occasional stripes were set amongst calm blues and a smashing of red, punctuating the primary spectrum of black through white. Extra-long scarves were crossed over the body, their frayed edges peeking below the hems of decadent outerwear. Garments repeatedly longed for your touch; cozy knits, gently worn denim and that elusive pair of sky blue shoes that looked every bit as soft as the luxurious coats.

Unexpected twists managed to avoid coming off gimmicky; the pleated half-skirts found at the front of slim tailored pants appeared often enough to be memorable without defining the collection. Bold knitwear subtlely insinuated matching separates, as single garments coyly pretended to be layered and tied at the waist.

There was often just a hint of skin, allowing heavy, layered looks to breathe - bared ankles, exposed shoulders, winter-be-damned open toe footwear. The sharp brims of severe black hats left an off-site crowd convinced, but they needn’t have bothered. This was a clique already seduced.
