The Ports 1961 program notes said Fiona Cibani was inspired by old-world artisanal glassblowing, thus she began with a series of metallic “aventurine Deco-blocked” tops, dresses and jackets in structured shapes, worn over full trousers or with over-the-knee suede boots. Gray shirred-mink tops and coats added a luxe feel, while slim turtlenecks in lavender or rust peeked out from the cropped sleeves of jackets and tops, adding a pop of color to the neutral palette. Cibani employed nice details, such as honeycomb bonding, on softly pleated jackets to suggest a cinched waist, but the draped chiffon looks missed the mark.
