The Tibi spring/summer 2014 collection is the next in New York Fashion Week show-list. This time designer Amy Smilovic, who is the one to have turned Tibi into a leading American brand as well as a must-see during New York Fashion Week, tries to drive the fashion-lovers and followers into the traps of tropical greenwoods. Giving freedom to her imagination, she gave the same to her models. Keeping minimalism in her mind, Amy conveyed energizing outlines in the considerate parts of the new Tibi collection. Quite individual and different from each other looks are represented in this collection for spring 2014.
This time Smilovic’s favorite prints include tropical leaf patterns. These are accompanied by both greenish stripes of natural fabrics, as well as classic black-and-white materials and leather details. The models were wearing silhouettes of almost all types: from short pants to loose dresses. The short free pants, mostly black and sometimes having deep-dry denim coloring, express the unrestricted ease of Amy’s models. Amazonian and nude culottes are quite flexible for different cases to wear and to combine with whatever accessory you would like. Not the same but maybe even more can be said about the black and white suits and dresses. A combination of black cut top with white trousers and a suit makes the wild Amazonian girl a discreet and energetic businesswoman.
Representing long and full skirts in the Tibi spring/summer 2014 collection, Amy marks the time of saying goodbye to the “little black dress”. She gives freedom to effortless long dresses with large pockets. A very attractive look of the collection is the only bright orange couple of slack shirt and trousers.
A notable part of the looks in this collection are covered with pullovers, mainly reminding of raincoats. This is the right thing that a metropolitan woman may need during a safari tour in greenwoods. Maybe this very idea made Amy complete some of her characters with deconstructed wooden hats. The models are wearing either flat sandals or hard platform heels.
All in all, the Tibi spring/summer 2014 collection is successful enough; not having notes of high glamour, but very clean and contemporary shapes that make a sense.
