Amy Smilovic is no stranger to patterns, but for her latest Tibi collection she went for a cleaned-up, purist viewpoint that continued the Nineties theme she dabbled in for fall. It was a savvy move for the contemporary designer — after all, some shoppers are bound to want quieter alternatives to the sea of prints that will flood stores next spring. Smilovic offered flowing dresses and suits that had a relaxed fit, and her palette was equally pleasing — strong colors balanced with soft hues like mint and salmon. Even her sole print, a white-brocade motif applied to green and black color-blocked looks, had a graphic feel that worked nicely with the rest of this strong lineup.
