Tibi's Amy Smilovic Describes Spring 2024 as 'Really Unbridled Luxury'

Tibi is known for its clean lines and minimalist vibes, from workwear to its more casual pieces. Still, playfulness and creative twists may reveal themselves in the details for Amy Smilovic's brand, and they were abundant for Spring 2024.

"We really feel very strong and comfortable in who we are. When you know who you are, you know where to push and pull. I have a really confident team here who wanted to experiment," Smilovic told Fashionista backstage.

The experimentation led to a mature-yet-quietly-playful collection, replete with distinctive details that add a luxurious feel. Triple-breasted blazers give the feeling of an optical illusion. Plain-looking suit jackets offer a surprise from behind, like subtle batwing sleeves or an O-ring under the collar. A maxi dress is tweaked slightly with laser-cut shapes near the hem. Draped nylon blouses offer a hint of Grecian goddess. A tuxedo shirt is reimagined in pink, pleated bib and all.

"I can't even begin to pinpoint [the inspiration]. It looks like a [Georges] Seurat painting by the time I put it on the wall. All the levels of inspiration... it's always like a culmination of our lifetime," Smilovic says. She describes next spring's proposition as "really unbridled luxury."

The color palette is true to the brand: relatively restricted to navy blues, grays, black and white. The footwear is more bold, like the fire-engine-red and metallic-gold and -silver ballet slippers (always paired with socks). Smilovic says the sock boots are among her favorite pieces in the collection.

For Tibi, which prides itself on relaxed and feminine designs, Smilovic finds femininity in garments that beget grace. "I think the more ease, the more you can glide, there's something very feminine about that," she adds.
