Amy Smilovic infused a workwear theme throughout Tibi's resort lineup, which put a new spin on some of the contemporary label's familiar, clean silhouettes. Paint-splatter prints added texture, shape, and a certain ruggedness to best-selling pieces like silk faille ball skirts, long shorts, and sporty pullovers cut from lightweight crepe instead of neoprene, which, if you ask us, is starting to look played out. "I don't think sweatshirts are going anywhere," said Smilovic, and we'd have to agree with her at this point. In keeping with the utilitarian vibe of the collection, the designer also showed slim canvas cargo pants with loops for a paintbrush as well as a full-on jumpsuit, which could've been fashioned from an artist's drop cloth.
