Tibi Shows Contemporary Cool With Feminine & Flirty Collection

Femininity with a side of flirty was Tibi’s order this season. With such a consistent flow from one look to the next during the label’s spring ’18 runway show, it seemed second nature for founder and creative director Amy Smilovic to assemble a collection of understated elegance that had a contemporary cool undertone down to the footwear.

Mod-inspired shoes, assorted across mules, flat sandals, slingbacks — featuring kitten heels, naturally, a burgeoning favorite — and the occasional cylinder-heel pump cemented a ready-to-wear sensibility. The thoughtfulness of adding a moccasin with a black racer stripe to the range drove home the point of practicality.

And white footwear for spring isn’t budging, as evidenced by the show’s kitten-heeled mules with black, and sometimes powder blue or yellow, geometric stripes on the outsoles. Platform sandals and slingbacks also got the cotton touch, though color was splashed strategically in the mixture.

Lilac and marigold provided pops throughout the palette in sleek tie-sandals and a pair of mules. Meanwhile, mahogany brown, metallic silver and black rounded out the neutrals. But blink and the finishing touches of metallic blue and a nod to the clear shoe trend in strappy sandals will be missed amidst the offering.
