Evoking the secessionist art movement — particularly Gustav Klimt and his muses — Tia Cibani’s lush pre-fall lineup demonstrated her knack for exotic textures. There were lacquered jacquards, waxed taffetas, geometric brocades, chain-mail paillettes and lush velvets in a palette rich with metallics, deep blues and violets. She worked a femme fatale/femme fragile theme, tempering the womanliness of her fluid cutout dresses with more handsome options that included a customizable trenchcoat and tailored suiting over bustiers. An Art Deco-inspired dress that showed off her signature pleating offered a supremely easy, elegant take on the LBD.
