London Fashion Week Series: 2. Sass & Bide
11th October 2012
Geometric details, simple silhouettes and pure colours with splashes of gold and silver exploded down the runway of Sass & Bide at London Fashion Week this September. Entitled ‘Loveshady’, the fresh simplicity of this SS13 collection delighted me.
The brand’s signature embellishments were present but I felt the overall effect was more subtle than in previous seasons. A palette of monochrome was interrupted here and there with soft peaches and striking tangerine shades. Talking with my blogger friend Anna we felt the eye-catching crisp white and gold looks were the highlight of this collection (see image below:)
Metallics in the form of sequined skirts, Cleopatra-style gold belts and chokers and chunky silver details gave the collection a lot of oomph. Sometimes it felt ‘too much’ – I didn’t much care for the full length sparkling dress or maxi skirt, that’s a little too much bling for me.
What I did love were the slouchy, relaxed trousers (even the tangerine coloured ones!) The soft feathered short dresses also won me over.
With a new e-boutique on their website, time for me to start saving for Sass & Bide!
