Sass & Bide London Fashion Week SS’13

Jourdan Dunn and Cara Delevingne strutting down the catwalk? That’s one way to put on a show Sass & Bide!

Designer powerhouse duo Sarah Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton took their inspiration from what sounds to be an exhilarating trip to Peru and Buenos Aires (triggering memories of another not-so distant collection to make it down the New York runway) in a SS’13 collection that battled with the masculine and feminine – and somehow harmonised with a blend of both.

“We’re traditional modernists,” they told Vogue backstage. “It’s a salute to tradition but also looks to the future”.

The golden invitations were reflected in the glimmering waists of the mini dresses, and dropped-waist dresses were garnished with fringes and feathers. Cravats with flowers reflected the masculine-feminine feel, with sequin-capped sleeves on the jackets over flowing dresses in black, silver and white.

The silhouette was kept simple and clean, whilst embellishment struck out boldly – pink and orange beads and silver trim. Sass & Bide are nothing if not bold – but it’s not with colour that they necessarily make their mark – it’s with fashion that packs a punch.
