A Talk with Tibi-Fall 2016 Collection


We recently hosted a Tibi Trunk Show August 30th and 31st to mix it up with their Fall 2016 collection. Cockatils, new Tibi and smart talk about fashion. It was a Roan night.

Tibi’s brand rep Lucy Henson sat down with us to discuss Tibi’s influence in fashion and how to pair their signature easy clothes with more daring trends. Lucy moved from Georgia to New York City, so she gets the  idea of mixing fashion-forward NYC style with our effortless looks of the South.

“We call the Tibi girl ‘perpetually’ thirty” Lucy says (wearing Tibi head-to-toe herself). “It’s for the 20-something who wants to look mature and it’s for the 40-something who wants to feel youthful. The pieces definitely have longevity.”


The Fall collection has a certain coziness about it. Earth-tones paired with soft cotton blends and loose fits. Perfect staples for the crisp weekends soon to come. In fact, Lucy says the colors are her favorite thing about the Fall Collection. Inspired by military elements, you see a palette of military greens, tonal quartz, rich cocoas any navys. The tonal look is a Tibi  look.

As the temperatures get lower, so do the hemlines. Mid-calf is the golden length for Tibi. And we are loving the modesty fashion comeback.  The two days Lucy has been in the store, we have seen her in nothing but mid-calf hems. “It’s the perfect length for comfort. It’s causal but still really put together”. While you don’t see as many Richmond women embracing the longer hem, we have a feeling it won’t be long until the feminine cut is everywhere. You’d be surprised how wearable it really is.

Lucy’s advice on current style trends? “Make sure you’re branching-out and trying trends, and then mixing them in with classic pieces. That’s the trick for clothing to be trendy yet wearable”.

We couldn’t agree more. Tibi is a staple here at Roan, and we’re exited to stay up-to-date as the Fall collection continues to inspire and evolve.
