NY S/S 09: Tibi


If you know, anything exotic and oriental is able to make me oblivious to the rest of the world and appreciates the details and intricacy of the design. Tibi did that to me for this season. But what differs is how Amy Smilovic assimilates her own ideas to complexity of exotism and orientalism.

It's not overboard, still quite a mix of the west culture. Not totally like a geisha show, like Alessandra Dell'Acqua S/S 08 for example.
The waist details, satin belt with knotted hangings is definitely a must-have for me now, though it has been a wish since I first saw Emanuel Ungaro's menwear Fall 08.
I have to say, the show belongs to Han Jin for me. Her first outfit suits her like nests to birds.
