Over the last couple of seasons Tibi designer, Amy Smilovic, has evolved her brand beyond being just the purveyor of the perfect full skirt. Pioneering a high-low aesthetic (think neoprene cocktail dresses and sequin-embellished sweatshirts) the designer has fused the feminine and the tomboy with insouciance. This Spring/Summer, Smilovic's collection was more technical, blending the traditional fabrics of the East (silk from Japan) and the West (organic cotton from Peru) to produce a streamlined, tailored silhouette in a palette of crisp whites, cool greys and steely blues. Quilted bomber jackets were teamed with carrot-leg trousers made from thick, frayed cotton while starchy white shirts were wrapped kimono style. For the grand finale, one-shouldered silk evening dresses came festooned with obi-style sashes.
