TIBI Fall 2008
Where & When: Tuesday, February 5th at 9 a.m. in the Salon, Bryant Park
Runway Recap: Few things get me out of bed so early in the morning, but I'll gladly wake up for a TIBI show. For fall, designer Amy Smilovic took a trip back to the '70s, with low-key glam Ice Storm hostess gowns, Annie Hall tailored three-piece suits, and groovy dresses in varying lengths. As always, TIBI had a smattering of great prints, from a hippie-chic Southwestern motif to a stylized tree pattern. But the great joy in seeing a TIBI show is knowing that not only are the clothes wearable, they're also attainable--thankfully, no $5,000 dresses here.
Standout Look: While I loved the printed dresses, this was my favorite look, if only because it looks exactly like something I'd wear. Also note the knee-highs (these are part of the upcoming TIBI for Hue capsule collection), which have been popping up on a lot of runways.
Bonus Points: Not only were the gorgeous Caroline Trentini and my current fave Coco Rocha on the runway, Saleisha from America's Next Top Model also took a turn, and I begrudgingly admit she did a good job.
Where to Buy: shopbop.com, Saks, Bloomingdale's, and the TIBI store on Wooster
