Tibi is the go-to label for easy, feminine dressing but for Spring/Summer 2016 things were amped up a notch. Yes, the fluid culottes and off-the-shoulder tops were there, as were the slouchy suiting and paper bag-waisted skirts – all in a soft palette of white, putty and peach, they were exactly what you want to wear in summer - but the real show-stoppers were the sequined gowns.
Designer Amy Smilovic kept silhouettes slouchy for a contemporary look and sliced skirts through with contrast colour pleats for a peek-a-boo effect. In shades of burgundy, black and teal (colours not normally associated with spring/summer), they felt glamorous yet effortless. Shorts, too, grabbed their moment in the spotlight, appearing in iridescent shades of turquoise and forest green.
