The first word that came to mine as I looked through the Tibi Resort 2013 Collection was: BOLD. Designer Amy Smilovic made a commitment to saturated colors, crisp tailoring and great shapes. And in my opinion it paid off.
Tibi typically has a downtown feel to it and this no different. But new to the brand is a sophistication that invites an even larger audience to check it out.
Ironic for me is that the added refinement is created by elements often associated with children. I believe it is the clean lines, exaggerated shapes and primary colors that have such a keen effect on the Tibi Resort 2013 Collection. You could practically be in a nursery with these elements!
Ultimately the simplicity speaks to the designer’s restraint and thoughtfulness in the pieces. There is clear intention behind her decisions.
There are some truly standout pieces in this collection that I look forward to getting a closer look at once they hit the stores (and with the mass appeal Tibi has garnered, I am sure they will be everywhere!). And while I am usually shy about big color, I can’t deny the appeal of the pieces (I especially like the skirt!). Then again, if I find myself timid, there are plenty of black & white options (that dress is totally me and those trousers may be calling my name)!
Alright, enough about my thoughts on the clothes! What do you think of Tibi Resort 2013?
