A lot of NY Fashion Week attendees were very happy to see a familiar name reappear on the womenswear scene---that of former Ports 1961 designer...and Kiko Kids leading light, Tia Cibani.
As expected, the mix of fabrics---violet and ochre silk, linen cotton blends and cotton poplin, fluid ombré printed chiffon, garbadine and double faced wool---in stripes (trend for Spring 2013, fyi), and earthy neutral tones mixed with dark navy...were all polished, wonderfully draped, and often asymmetrically tailored--- for a mix of feminine and masculine profiles.
And- we assume, that the garments are intricately crafted with not seen but appreciated internal details...something that we always admired about Ports 1961 garments.
|A LBD that makes a sweeping statement with shoulder detail|
|Trousers-nipped at the waist with wide flowing legs that drape perfectly.|
The vibe---romantic polish.
|high waist cropped pants-classic|
|petal shaped silk dress and belted top-lovely|
