Sass & Bide electrified London Fashion Week this year, from the oversized polka dot prints, to their flourescent oranges, and neon tribal accessories S&B showed us exactly what we’ll be needing for S/S 2012 in order to stand out in a crowd.
|My Top 20 Looks from the collection
The gently structured layers in this collection, paired with the highly saturated colors made for an experience all its own at London Fashion Week. The color palette for this collection consisted mainly of citrine yellow, fluorescent orange, pale nude, navy blue, and white. The neon accessories in this collection will surely be the items of choice when fashionistas across the globe are adorning their extremities this season. Not only was this collection full of deliciously bold colors, but it also is laden with asymmetrical hemlines that give some of the pieces a very modern “hodgepodge” look. Metallic embroidered vests were paired with flowing maxi-skirts, and structured mini-skirts. The multiple asymmetrical lines in many of the pieces reflected upon days of Grecian dress with asymmetrical wrapped draping. Sass & Bide used quite the eclectic mix of fabrics including metallic leather, washable suede, fine mesh (more 90’s sportswear fabrics– see Rag & Bone), silk, neoprene, and cashmere. For F/W 2011 Rebecca Minkoff, Celine, and Ruffian showed us fantastic oversized envelope clutches; but it seems as though they have been outdone by the neon and metallic envelope clutches featured in this collection. The strong asymmetrical hemlines, eye popping colors, and impossibly gentle layers make this collection my favorite creation to emerge from London Fashion Week this season.
