Tia Cibani  New York Fashion Week Spring 2013

Fashion Ledge - Tia Cibani
Since leaving Ports 1961, Tia Cibani has moved on to debut her very own label for spring, having left the former to sis Fiona. This branding seems to have a little more fluidity to it and the message is a bit more artsy than Ports' crafty, not to say that the comparison need exist, simply something that is noticeable off the bat. Aroused by the novel/film "The Lover" - the collection evokes era-specific sentiments in parallel, but gives an update with modernizations along the way. Masculine touches with wide-leg trousers, khakis and fedoras were sweetened with printed dresses and striped ensembles. A mostly dark against light color palette was enlivened with canary and cantaloupe hues. A metallic sheen, and full on lame pieces were richly suggestive and added some sass to the more covered-up components. From the looks of things, it's safe to say we're anticipating watching this designer develop into her own true calling.
