“I felt there was a void for fine jewelry with a casual attitude that doesn’t feel ‘precious,’” said Tibi’s Amy Smilovic of her first foray into bijoux. Available from today, the breakout effort is a collection of three pieces made in collaboration with Los Angeles-based designer Anita Ko. The partnership came about spontaneously after a chance meeting and brainstorm session last summer. At that point, Smilovic was already a long-time fan of Ko’s jewels “because they were luxurious, but not out of place with jeans and an oversize sweatshirt,” she told Style.com. “Her designs are pared-down and practical with a bit of an edge—all attributes I use to describe Tibi’s aesthetic. So when I was ready to create jewelry with our brand’s DNA, it made sense to do this with Anita.” The new capsule includes a “floating” earring, which mimics the look of a multi-piercing cuff, as well as a dagger pendant, and square, stackable rings that sit above the knuckle. Each style comes in 18 karat gold (rose, white, or yellow) and features micro-pave diamonds—a Ko signature. The made-to-order wares, which range from $3,000 to $6,000, will be sold exclusively in Tibi’s Soho flagship store and on Tibi.com.
Just when we thought the sneaker trend was on its way out, another pair made it onto our radar. This time it’s the work of Tibi designer Amy Smilovic, who created a street-chic capsule collection for bloggers and It girls like Elin Kling, Miroslava Duma, Caroline Issa, Taylor Tomasi Hill, and Poppy Delevingne. Smilovic used iconic styles from Converse and Vans as her canvas and infused them with Tibi’s signature prints. Think black and white daisies, pastel florals, and bright optical patterns (pictured). But Kling, Duma, et al. are not the only ones who are lucky enough to rock these sneakers. Starting today, the collection will be available on Tibi.com, where you can personalize a pair complete with your own initials. At just $125 each, you may even want to buy two.
It’s the holidays, and we’ve been receiving some beautiful cards with wishes of the season here at the Style.com offices. But our favorites yet are actually blank: They’re the new stationery from Tibi. Designer Amy Smilovic created a special line of cards with fashion sketches from her collection, and added to the top of the stack sent to our executive editor, Nicole Phelps, were a few personalized sketches of her own greatest outfits, pulled from street-style blogs. (Nicole wears, left to right, a Prabal Gurung dress; a Marni cape and Helmut Lang jeans; and a Calvin Klein jacket, J.Crew top, and Stella McCartney for H&M cargos.) You’ll have to catch Smilovic’s eye to get your own personalized versions, but her standard cards are available now at Tibi stores and Tibi.com.
