Tibi Fall 2012 Collection
We had the rare privilege of backstage access for the show, which was thrilling not only because we could watch the models being made up and look at the clothes up close on the racks, but because the inspiration board for the collection was set out. Lots of Mick Jagger and Rolling Stones shots. Mick’s having quite the moment this season and this time the looks are far less literal. It’s essence of Mick, but it’s really taking swinging ’60s London menswear shapes and forms and filtering them through both the 21st Century lens and Tibi designer Amy Smilovic’s clean, pared-down style. Loved the white double-breasted jacket, the white dress with the square pattern on the front, and the bird prints, but we are TOTALLY LOVING the glittery Lost in Space-style matching top and cropped pants in green. There’s a sense of whimsy even here, among all these clean lines and classic updates.
