Ports 1961 held a viewing of their Spring Collection at Bloomingdale’s this week with Ports 1961 designer, Tia Cibani, and fashion expert, Ann Caruso. Ports 1961 is known for their worldly influences, often using cultural aspects to create clothing that looks easy to wear and beautiful to create. Models wore a mixture of high structural heels and flat, menswear inspired flats.
This Spring Collection incorporated Asian inspired floral prints with light, pastel tones. This was contrasted by the makeup: nude lips and cheeks with bold red outlining the entire eye. The clothes were made for the woman who loves to be comfortable but appreciates high style. One printed dress started with a mild cowl neck in solid red and became a body-skimming, knee-length dress that would flatter all body types. Another dress played on the tuxedo look, with a notched collar. This look was made complete with a plastic, transparent belt. Simple shift dresses were made interesting by gathering on one side at the hem. Staples, like white trousers and capris were worn with printed tops and basic tees. Not to be left out was a Little Black Dress, made different with layers of horizontal ruffles. One of my favorite dresses was a red number with a classic boat neck and twisted fabric at the back neck.
