StyleOnTheCouch Loves: Tibi Fall 2012

Tibi is a label I adore for their sleek and minimalist aesthetic and this year I could not contain my excitement when I was fortunate to receive an invite to their Fall 2012 show.  Designer Amy Smilovic brings us a menswear inspired collection of slim cut, cropped trouser suits, tailored maxi skirts, double breasted jackets and simple shift dresses for fall; with a hint of the 60s filtered through Tibi’s modern, 21st century lens.  All so very wearable, there are some lovely details in the fall line – my favourites being the skirts with back welt pockets and shift dresses decorated with a breastplate of geometric shapes.

Unusual fabrics and textures give a cool flash of depth and colour to the collection.  Glossy varnished skirts and lurex sweaters are standout pieces, yet these remain faithful to Tibi’s simplistic, hint-of-androgyny silhouette.  This season I was reminded just how far the label has evolved since its inception – Smilovic continues to show us her love of crazy prints and colour used in unexpected combinations, but there is a lovely relaxed yet luxurious ease about her recent work, making her pieces highly attractive to me.

I could have taken these styles off the catwalk and worn them right away.  This winter you can find me wearing Tibi, Blog Reader!
