Taking New York City as her muse, founder and creative director Amy Smolovic paid homage to the ’80 scene when New Yorkers weren’t so precious about their outfits. It was also during this decade saw the height of the power suit revolutionized by the ‘80s executive women.
As a result, Tibi’s SS18 collection saw a modern rendition of the power suit featuring pedal pushers cinched with a transparent PVC corset. The brand also introduced its own version of a track suit, a slight not to the ‘80s fitness craze, but designed with today’s busy and cosmopolitan women in mind. Tailored zipped bomber jacket, relaxed track suit pants and hooded nylon jumpsuits were seen on the runway.
Despite the strong nod to the ‘80s, the brand managed to maintain its luxurious, modern and laid-back aesthetics all throughout the collection, keeping the Tibi women in mind.
