New York: DNA; the fundamental components of life – an appropriate source of inspiration for a brand who pride themselves on fashion forward building blocks of a great wardrobe. For Resort Amy Smilovic’s contemplations of Tibi’s DNA took her to a more scientific conclusion; helixes, neutrons and protons. From this she drew her pattern and colour influences; a palette of popping primary colours, mixed with soft and natural neutrals, versatile – as always. Atom-like embroidery anglaise snaked its way around long and lean sporty silhouettes, whilst colour blocked appliqués on a leather skirt and dress featured dissected petals. A buttery pair of culottes with grommet detailing stood out as a collection must have. Amongst the scientific vibes stood a collection strong in athletic influence; hi-shine nylons, an anorak with sporty eyelets and track pants with breakaway snaps highlighted the best of Tibi’s display of ath-leisure. Science gets a sporty makeover! – Anna Ross
