Tibi Spring 2014 RTW

Fashion month is the most wonderful (and craziest) time of the year, and one thing is for sure: Tibi always delivers. To be blunt, I have a (not-so) secret love for the brand. Over the past few seasons, I've loved watching designer Amy Smilovic turn Tibi into a leading American brand as well as a must-see during New York Fashion Week. I was so fortunate to be invited back to see what Smilovic and her team have schemed up for spring. My thoughts on the collection can be summed up to this:

It was pure perfection.

After covering shows for other publications and updating my Pinterest board like a madwoman, I know exactly what I'm craving for this spring: simple, high-octane glamour. Luckily, the spring shows thus far are all about clean silhouettes and versatile neutrals.

At the vanguard of the minimalist movement, Tibi's spring collection introduces refreshing shapes and thoughtful details to the trend. In addition to the quintessential sleek blazer, cropped top, and pair of trousers look, Smilovic includes easy culottes and effortless playsuits.  It's pieces like these that I can't help but get goosebumps for: they make such a strong statement without being too loud.

Though the collection mainly consists of modern neutrals, Smilovic also showcases natural greens, soothing floral prints, and even a bright orange number. To keep these pieces feeling contemporary, the brand pairs the jaunty hues with clean shapes. 

What sets this collection apart from other contemporary brands is Smilovic's attention to detail. Leather tops, deconstructed hats, embellished skirts, and fringe backs are just some of the ways Tibi's collection reigns superior. The brand continues to raise the sartorial bar by incorporating these details in a crisp, calculated manner. 

Whether you're craving the streamlined ensemble or lusting over the adorned outfits, this whole collection feels very natural. It's not over-the-top or forced, it just makes sense. Perfectly modern and versatile, this collection is filled with outfits that you can wear again and again, making a chic statement each time.

Sheer stripes were all the rage on Tibi's catwalk.

Not to sound dramatic, but these nude culottes are everything.

What's black, white, and chic all over?

Goodbye "little black dress," hello "little black playsuit."

A vision in white, this ensemble is effortless and undeniably fabulous.
