Tibi New York spring summer 2011 collection was inspired by the movie, “Leave Her To Heaven”.

Spring 2011 collection began with color inspired by the movie “Leave Her To Heaven” starring Gene Tierney. The story is about a femme fatale who commits several crimes motivated by her insane jealousy. The story was adapted for the screen by Jo Swerling, having been based on the best selling novel of the same name authored by Ben Ames Williams. The film was directed by John M. Stahl. Tierney received an Oscar nomination as Best Actress in a Leading Role for this film. The film was Fox's highest-grossing picture of the 1940s.

The the wardrobe colors were inspired from each location of the film. Terra cotta, tobacco, and white representing, New Mexico; denim, plaid, rich red and blue representing, Lake Michigan, and cornflower blue, white and brown for Cape Cod. Various tones of white were the focal point of this Tibi collection with reds, yellows and browns.

Rich fabrics, interesting textures and modern twists on classic styles played a large role for Spring 11. Perforated leather, laser-cut lace, tweed with leather appliques and cotton crepes were transformed into wearable, grown-up and feminine styles – described by WWD as “Tibi at its best”. Designer dresses with a flare in the hem-line and tonal separates with an air of sophistication paint the portrait of a chic woman with polished style yet bohemian ease.
