Amy Smilovic set about fusing these craft work traditions, from Japan to Peru, with the shapes and movement of modern life. The search for how authenticity and nature can be articulated into the art of modern dressing is never far from Smilovic’s mind.
Resort 2015 Collection Preview: The Tibi Resort 2015 collection re-imagines uniform work-wear into feminine silhouettes, with the buy-now-wear-now spirit. Inspired by the sailor uniform, the collection’s plaited sweaters, classic coats, and wide-leg slouchy trousers showcase some of the most defining elements of the classic mariner look: stripes, mariner knots, gritty tattoo-inspired prints, toggles, roping and metal grommets. This season’s palette focuses on black, white, navy and tan highlighted with saturated hues of cerulean blue and underwater green.
In this ode to the sailor, Tibi celebrates a way of life articulated through the re-interpretation of a uniform, one that is functional and wearable and underpinned by a distinct aesthetic identity.
