Tess Giberson Fall/Winter 2015 collection
TESS GIBERSON speaks to an expanding global audience of strong, empowered women. The line is recognized for its cool, effortless and creative aesthetic with a distinct knitwear component. Designer Tess Giberson’s focus originates largely from the influence of her parents, both artists, while growing up in rural New Hampshire in the early 1970s. They raised Giberson with an emphasis on craftsmanship and creativity, traits further cultivated when attending Rhode Island School of Design.
Some of the most outstanding garments for Fall/Winter 2015 are:
An ivory shearling knit sweater vest, a fringe turtleneck, a silk cashmere cardigan, white leather leggings, gloves, leg warmers – all one outfit. Anyone who has ever been subjected to a Nor’easter didn’t see mere stylistic choices; they saw good ideas they could repurpose for real life.
Amidst the cavalcade of textures Giberson employs here – boucle, herringbone, jacquard – she keenly intersperses beautifully simple silk cashmere, and even pleated satin, as seen in a navy dress and a must-have silver pleated satin skirt. And start dissecting piece by piece and you’ll note that many garments were sleeveless - like a tabard-like ivory rib knit tunic and a stunning indigo coated jacquard vest, essentials of transitional dressing for when this frigid cold finally lays to rest. Seasonal smarts in spades.
The color palette: black, white, ivory, grey - the winter colors.
