NYFW: Tia Cibani Spring/Summer 2015

Tia Cibani Board

  • Who’s the Designer:  The design genius behind this “voluminous” brand is Tia Cibani.
  • What’s the Inspiration:  In Cibani’s own words, “all-out ’70s,” channeling Bianca Jagger in Marrakech with a block-printed, light-as-air cotton dress bustled at the side to give it shape, and a fluffy, off-the-shoulder ruffled top worn with a pair of dark rose-printed satin trousers. 
  • Why it’s relevant:  While Cibani was thinking a lot about silhouette, color emerged as the season’s strongest suit. Dusty pinks, golds, and purples named after spices—turmeric, clove, cayenne, saffron—delivered the feeling of the era, especially when rendered in cupro-sateen or lamé. There were some utilitarian pieces that stood out as well, particularly a denim sleeveless coat dress, and a khaki chino skirt. Cibani likes to show lots of looks with lots of elements, which can cause confusion. But this time around, it all made sense.
  • Where to wear it:  Everywhere! This collection is especially perfect for all of my working girls.  After all isn’t the Mary Jane Manolo Blahnik of our dreams approps office attire that takes us right into Happy Hour?
