NYFW: Tibi Fall 2012

photo taken by me (see more on my fb page)


Pastels, maxis, and light-airy frocks were nowhere in sight for Tibi's Fall 2012 collection. Instead designer Amy Smilovic went a different route with a more sophisticated look for the Fall. The collection was reminiscent of Celine like structured turtle necks and Miu Miu style bird prints. My favorite looks from this collection were the metallic skirts, along with the shiny green sweater and patching pants. I felt refreshed after seeing these pieces come down the runway since it was something that I had yet seen. Plus it gave it the young playful vibe that Tibi is known for having. I also was happy to see that oversized blazer styled coats aren't going anywhere-- they are the perfect layering tool.

No matter what you think of the collection there is no denying that Smilovic has amazing tailoring skills. I can see it now-- woman who already love designs such as Celine and Chloe walking into Tibi and buying her clean cut tailored pants by the armful. These pants are perfect for work and play for the Fall months.

What do you think of Tibi Fall 2012 collection? Do you think you'll go bold and wear metallic foil skirts?

    I am totally digging your Day 3 outfit, it made quite a splash and it's so simple comfy chic!
