The 20th anniversary of the “Tiby” brand was celebrated the most beautiful way – with a new collection. Amy Smilovic created a pretty collection that combined the tailoring and the sporty looks in one. As everyone is creating and designing finding an inspiration from the ‘90s and ‘00’s, Smilovic went further back in the ‘80s. This is the decade that is considered to be the most fun one in terms of colors, glitz, excess, music. That was a relaxed time in New York, when people did not bother much about their outfits. With that in mind the spring collection might have seemed like an un-styled. The show started with several minimal separates that had mannish look and fabrics. Blazers were paired with pants and miniskirts which gave a look of chic office uniforms. There was a gray checked jacket paired with beige trousers which looked like a suit but it was not.
The tailoring was spotted in tuxedo-inspired jumpsuits and pants. The denim was not forgotten and it was presented together with oversized jacket. The looks continued with some basics: sweater and pedal pushers, trousers with high waist and a tank, flowing dresses and sandals. Truly basic and what everyone needs. An interesting part was the color palette. The colors were saturated and the choice fell in lime green, lilac and tangerine. Having relocated her company from Hong Kong to New York, she maintained the influence from both cities and transferred them on a relaxed and flexible line, having ‘80s fitness in mind.
There were pieces made from sporty fabrics for women who precisely asked for that – clothes that they can rely on in their busy lives. For that purpose, Smilovic made a tracksuit of high-rise nylon pants and a zip-zap hoodie who came in navy and cream. Addition to that was a trackdress and hooded jumpsuit. The whole sporty accent introduced a fresh, cool and dynamic vibe. The loose bomber and the joggers talked about the femininity. The elegancy came out in the several plisse dresses, with ruffles, cuffs and necklines. The collection was versatile and it was easy-to-wear wardrobe for every contemporary woman who follows the fashion. The looks were all chic, as the designer herself, wearing her own design in the backstage of the show.
