Once upon a time Tibi was all flower gardens and cute ladies. But, the minimalism revolution marches on at the House of Tibi. For pring 2013 lines are clean and devoid of fluff. This is clothing for the working world; giving a mere nod to femininity with a few graphic pastels and gathered waistlines, another nod to fierceness with some black leathers. We understand that Amy Smilovic designs what she likes to wear (hence the introduction to denim this year) but we long for the colorful flowers and ruffly lines of years gone by. We might just miss the whimsy a teeny bit of her Fashion Show backdrop and cute bags on the chairs. The collection was mostly seperates and would work will with other pieces, so she does give us a wonderful base to work from. And she also confirms that next Spring we will all wear Skater dresses (corset belts may or may not be worn over them).
