Amy Smilovic served up an unexpected, understated menswear-inspired collection for Tibi’s Fall 2012 presentation during New York Fashion Week yesterday evening.
I was expecting girlie tea-length dresses but instead I saw cropped pants, oversized outerwear, menswear-inspired blouses, slouchy knits, boxy wax jackets and double-breasted jackets.
It wasn’t all menswear inspired. We did see some A-line dresses, sleeveless peplum blouses, floaty skirts and chiffon flowy tops.
The pieces which stood out were the shimmering blue-and-green looks plus the pretty bird prints.
Models wore comfortable men’s shoes in black and white, their hair was styled into a low messy ponytail, their faces were kept natural and their nails were painted white.
What I love about this collection is that it is easy, chic and very wearable.
Front Row: Olivia Palermo
Who I See Wearing This Collection: Olivia Palermo, Shailene Woodley, Emma Roberts, Whitney Port, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Carey Mulligan and Liv Tyler
