London Fashion Week A/W 2011: Sass and Bide
Aussie designer duo Sass and Bide put on - dare I say it? My favourite show at London Fashion Week so far. Okay, so it's only day one, but it will take something special to beat it. We were lucky enough to have backstage access to the show thanks to the lovely people at GHD - can we take this opportunity to say to the girls backstage, yes, it was worth painting the models forearms illuminescent yellow - it looked a.maz.ing!
When it came to the show, the collection had a clear cultural influence with Amazonian inspired prints and tribal accessories, which were to die for (I need one of those gold plated waist belts in my life!). Pop colour brights were also in abundance creating a vibrant aesthetic for Autumn Winter. We must mention the out of this world flowing, endless, ethereal maxi length shapes .
No wonder when we spotted Sass and Bide backstage they were looking the picture of calm, with a collection like this, we would be too!
