Fashion Week Spring ’07. Spring Prints Are Wild At Tibi. Second City Style Fashion Blog

September 13, 2006 • New York Fashion Week Spring/Summer '07


By Girlawhirl

was expecting a riot of prints at Tibi, and she was thrilled with what
she saw. But in a gutsy move, Amy Smilovic led off the show with
solids! It kept Girlawhirl on the edge of her seat, waiting for the
prints to come.


The khaki, cream and denim solid pieces at the beginning of the show
were a bit of a mix of safari and military, with gold buttons, A-lines
and belts. The denim pieces were cool and modern. Girlawhirl loved the
great oversized shirt with full sleeves that was shown over a bathing
suit in the show, but Girlawhirl knows she’ll throw it on over skinny
black pants and a white T. But what really caught her eye were the high
waisted, full-legged denim trousers. They’re so much more than a jean,
and such a great alternative to all the slinky, skinny pants all over
the runways.

When the prints came out, Girlawhirl, and – she suspected – the rest
of the crowd, was so ready. A wild combination of green, orange and
yellow, in an oversized, abstract pattern, floated down the runway in
the form of a belted chiffon dress. More followed: a blue floral on
white, reminiscent of a Ming vase, albeit an oversized version. Then, a
fun broken vertical stripe that lead to a wide border of brightly
colored flowers. And last but not least, a kaleidoscope printed dress
in a trapeze silhouette. Girlawhirl still isn’t sure which of these
prints she’ll choose for her spring wardrobe.


A perennial favorite for feminine silhouettes and pretty prints,
Girlawhirl can’t get enough of Tibi. And with the opening of the new
shop in New York’s SOHO, Girlawhirl knows it will be easier than ever
to get her fashion fix.
