New York Fashion Week is in full swing and after an action-packed first day filled with running around from show to show (in style, of course) – we’ve finally sat down to share everything there is to know about it so far. Yesterday, we had the opportunity to preview the Tibi Fall 2020 Ready To Wear Collection and we can’t wait to dive in and tell you exactly what to expect from this contemporary womenswear brand.
Founder and creative director of Tibi, Amy Smilovic, believes that women should dress in a way that is both effortless and polished. This contradiction, among others, has become a signature in her collections for over two decades. Her designs are often youthful yet sophisticated, masculine yet feminine, and bold but muted – because she believes this is what makes a women’s wardrobe choices more interesting.
This season’s collection was no different. It featured Tibi’s structured cuts and clean silhouettes polished off with unique details – like unexpected folds and eye-catching embellishments. It included a wide range of garments, from more feminine styles like pleated pants and full skirts to more masculine ones, like blazers and trench coats. The colours in the collection – an army green, mustard yellow, and light blue (just to name a few) – were more subdued versions of vibrant tones, a nod to the incongruent design element she’s so well known for.
Shearling, one of the trends that fashion forecasters said to keep an eye out for in Fall 2020, was heavily used throughout the collection. In fact, it was featured in a number of the shoe styles offered this season – from a classic mule to a heeled pump.
The most intriguing aspect of the collection may have been the inspiration behind it – travel. Some of the looks were topped off with a stylish variation of a neck pillow, similar to the ones you might find at an airport kiosk. One was completely adorned in shiny pearls and another was constructed with a cozy dusty pink shearling. Other garments, like a double-breasted blazer, featured industrial seat-belt like straps that could be used to cinch the sleeves.
Boots were also a consistent theme throughout the collection. Some were platform boots with thick and chunky soles, while others were chic, tall and square-toed. The collection also included the styles that Tibi created in collaboration with Clark’s Shoes – three exclusive unisex styles of their Wallabee Boot, offered in silver, black and white leather.
Tibi’s fall collection proves not only that they will continue to meet the needs of the modern woman, but also that they will continue to do so wherever in the world she may go.
