“Weight” may have been the theme of TSE (pronounced “say”) designer Tess Giberson's spring collection, but a variety of thigh-skimming linen shorts, peek-a-boo knit tops and translucent dresses dominated the first half of the show. While much better suited for spring than previous TSE offerings, weightless fabrics and cropped silhouettes gave way to heavier, elongated draping and darker colors. Giberson explained this distinct transition in her design statement as “balance, gravity and suspension play[ing] throughout the Spring 2007 collection and reveal[ing] the evolution of TSE.”

Even the white-washed warehouse where the collection was presented played a part in defining the weight of the garments. Clean-faced models with pursed red lips glided down the runway, while stark lighting emanated from the back flowed through their outfits like a solar eclipse. As viewer’s eyes refocused, they got a new view of each look in natural light flooding down on the front of the runway. The color story of putty, grey and optic white was accented by papaya orange and navy, culminating at the end of the presentation with several full-length pantsuit and dress combinations in basic black.

Luxurious, yet wearable pieces for spring included an ivory and navy leaf-printed knit tank dress, with matching knee-length cardigan. Also, any of the shorts, particularly a charming pleated pair in papaya, would look great. For the brave, oversized printed cashmere hoodies with matching leggings would be a natural choice for that distinctive TSE look.
