Summary: The florals and colors of next season seem to be what the house of Tibi does best. Known for sweet bias-cut slip dresses and sheer pastel confections, the Tibi line is always a good go-to for springy staples. The 2010 collection stayed in line with the label's trademark look, channeling the theme of 1900's novel "Great Expectations" in the garden-heavy patterns and saturated hues. The usual suspects were all present like slip dresses, femininely cut trousers, and bubble skirts. The palette ranged from pastel patterns to bold solids like fire engine red and turquoise and of course, the flowers reigned over all in both pattern and texture as the flouncy suede fleur accent made its debut. A new shape to the collection was seen in their use of cutouts—especially the angular 'Cut Out Simple Tank'- Tibi's hold on the geometric and modernist wagon that many designers have jumped on this season. The fresh looking prints included the tribal looking 'Abstract Calily Modernist' and the black and white, 'Grafitti Mark', standing out more against the less impressive 'Hummingbird' print. The pieces were pretty and definitely wearable for warm weather day to evening, but Tibi knows Tibi can do floral and so do we. What else? I think the time for them to branch out to bolder, riskier designs is definitely overdue.
