Eric Tibusch has a penchant for movie-inspired collections. His Spring/Summer 2009 collection was entitled "Bonnie and Clyde". The following year gave us "Orbital", inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s visionary outlook. In 2007, Tibusch presented a collection entitled, "Murder Along the Champs", the story of a woman’s emancipation.

Tibusch tried to answer the question, What would Marylin Monroe dress like today? And what would Rita Hayworth, Joan Crawford, Gloria Swanson, Marlene Dietrich, Grace Kelly, and Bette Davis wear to a cocktail in 2012? His collection "Chic" was inspired by the glamour of Hollywood’s golden age, diluted with a French sexiness. Tibusch, who worked with Jean Paul Gaultier for several years, also launched his first jewellery line.

The collection reinterpeted classics. A Kim Novakesque woman from "Vertigo" was clad in a cigaline blouse dotted with rooster feathers, while a guest from "The Party" was wearing  cigarette pants with a belt embroidered with navy turquoise and jade. There was a "Party Two" look, composed of a georgette blouse with silver tassels, and a kimono skirt embellished with tassels. Audrey Hepburn in "Breakfast at Tiffany’s" wore--not pearl necklaces--a vest made of agate, amethyst, pearls and moonstones.

The men’s collection showed ensembles equally inspired by filmcharacters. Pants were looser than today’s more tapered cuts. Dr No was ready to remove his navy duchess satin smoking for Honey Ryder, but would the silver bracelets on his wrists be more suited to her?
