Drawing inspiration from the craft movement, Tess Giberson showed a strong, edited lineup with a great balance of texture, proportion, color and detail. Culling references from a quilt her mother, an artist, made in the Seventies, Giberson explored various ways of building details. Knits evolved from sleeves on one coat into a full dress woven in an abstract, colorful pattern. A black-and-white print added pop to an architecturally cut dress while serving as an added detail on the seams of another.
Layering is central to Giberson’s aesthetic and her combos were effortlessly styled. Leather, wool, fur and netting looked cool together, giving her girl an arty urban-warrior vibe. Standouts included a fur-sleeved coat over a leather skirt and a group of colorful knits.
