Tia Cibani’s inspiration for her latest Ports 1961 collection was the tension between nature and technology. To express this dichotomy, high-tech materials mixed with rustic wools and slippery satins coexisted with nubby bouclé. The show opened with a futuristic white coat that set a clinical, minimalist mood, but Cibani quickly expanded into more lush territory. Tiny floral patterns managed to look rustic in olive-brown and yellow tones and were used for slim jumpsuits and outerwear. A laminated leather yoke brightened up a texture patterned grey coat that was cinched in with a belt. The show ended with luscious satins used for tops and dresses, and sparkling lamé gave outfits a hit of glamour.
