Designer Tess Giberson's second outing for TSE focused on ideas of weight and weightlessness. Much of the collectionwhich included cotton-linen shorts, mesh cardigans, and hoodies that would make great beach cover-upssuccessfully captured a summery feeling, with a long, swingy silhouette that worked best in the combination of the vapory tulle blouse, mesh over-tunic, and long white linen skirt worn by Kim Noorda.
TSE is literally trying to reposition itselftheir boutique is being relocated from Madison Avenue to an as-yet-undisclosed, "hip" new locationand Giberson said after the show that she believes cashmere can be "more than a basic." But it was hard to see the more "designed" pieces that she sent outlike the heavy-knit "exaggerated" pants with crotches that fell inches above the ankleas having much of a life off the runway. On the other hand, the classics and variations thereofa linen coat, rethought cable knitslooked just right.
