Tibi has always been about editing and simplifying your wardrobe. And no one is more tuned into a woman’s every day – being constantly on the move, where the idea of complicated clothing can, quite frankly, feel exhausting – than the brand’s creative director Amy Smilovic. Comfort, effortlessness and a large serving of cool has always been Tibi’s DNA, and with Smilovic, one great piece, from a carefully crafted shirt with smocked-neck detail to striped wide-leg satin trousers, is all you need. The Style Report speaks to industry insiders about why this cult New York label remains a wardrobe favourite.
‘I am a big fan of [Tibi’s] new handbag collaboration with Myriam Schaefer. The bags feel easy and effortless. Designer Amy Smilovic has such a strong sense of what women want to wear. She has a sharp editorial eye, at a smart price point, and is always looking towards what’s next.’
