Tibi Swim Wear 2009
The Tibi 2009 swimsuit collection is a lesson to other designer on how to focus a collection for a particular customer. This by far was one of the best shows we had seen during Mercedes~Benz Fashion Week. What makes the collection such a success is that The Tibi line also produces a spring, fall and resort collection and has been doing so for quite some time. So with that in place taking their customer to the swim side is not a problem.
The color palette for the season is medium tone blues, purple, black and earth tones. We love the fact that the designer infused gold cuffs on the models to ramp up the luxury factor to give the look richness. Standout pieces where the candy stripe suits and her floral/paisley prints. The beach cover up’s and dresses add the resort element to the collection and is a smart move to incorporate this into the line, one stop shopping is always a nice touch in shopping for swim wear.
