2013 Fall New York Fashion Week: Tibi

2013 Fall New York Fashion Week: Tibi

Trending toward a more utilitarian girl, Amy Smilovic's brand of American sportswear got a dose of the '90s for Fall 2013 — albeit with a polished update that's made Tibi a favourite among the style set like Olivia Palermo (who sat front-row with beau Johannes Huebl). She played, as always, to function and fashion — never forgetting what girls actually want to wear and how they want to feel in clothes. She never sacrifices comfort for style, but doesn't have to — she blends them into sophisticated and impossibly cool pieces. Case in point: this season's thigh-high leather boot, which she crafted without a heel. The silhouettes and palette were both minimalist; Amy worked in predominately black and white, with brilliant shades of emerald green and cobalt blue, but only in small doses. While the Spring was rife with playful prints, this line-up is all about texture and proportion. Working in a stricter colour scheme means that we're drawn most to Amy's cool layers. Quilted vests, moto jackets, draped dresses, knit pullovers, neoprene sweatshirts, and slouchy, tomboy shorts finished in leather are effortlessly combined throughout the collection, making it easy to imagine mixing and matching the pieces in your own closet.

  • Trends: Leather, minimalism.
