As the Spring/Summer season progresses here at RPM we are currently balancing two distinct visions of fashion as defined by a couple of the world’s most coveted labels –M Missoni and Tibi.
From the playfully up-beat carnival of colour in the circus-inspired M Missoni collection, to the cool, laid-back intelligence of Tibi, we can relate to both dynamics are are having fun interchanging the philosophies.
As diametrically opposed as the two labels may seem (M Missoni wants to laugh, to swing from a trapeze, Tibi wants to learn, to loiter over The New Yorker) one thing they have in common is an item of clothing that has had you all guessing.
The crop top.
Crop tops are in, but you want to stay classy – we get it. Whether you want to rock your favourite high waisted jeans, or a tailored pant and take the look to work, we’ve got you covered — literally.
Here’s 3 looks from Tibi and M Missoni that we think are the cream of the crop!
1: Crop Top & High Waisted Denim – play off the bohemian nature of the macrame detail in this top with retro denim and an embellished bag. Sleek slides bring you right back to 2016.
