Sass & Bide is one of my all time favourite designers and I was extremely excited to see their new collection showcased on the runway at New York Fashion Week. The Spring/Summer 2014 Collection is based around themes from past eras and contrasts that with futuristic, modern looks. With a predominate colour palette of black and white, ‘FREETOWN’ incorporates clever pops of gold, navy, pale blue, hot orange and cherry red.
Sass & Bide displayed a signature collection with structured jackets, gingham playsuits, floaty dresses, gold embroidery, maxi-lengths, chiffon overlays and simple, fun prints which create the perfect ready-to-wear range. The tailored looks added a playful edge to the collection by pairing beaded trim blazers with black mesh, shorts and skirt overlays. The layered combos bought forward a hint of sports and youth, whilst the sheer, chiffon garments added femininity and subtle sexiness.
There is no denying Sass & Bide killed it on the runway in New York – living up to the high expectations of their anticipated ready-to-wear range. I’m absolutely in love with this collection and cannot wait to get my hands on some of the pieces!
Sass & Bide’s first international flagship boutique is set to open in New York this November – how exciting!
