Sass & Bide


London: Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton, the Australian designers behind hip label Sass & Bide, described their collection this season as “futuristic tribalism”, mixing earthy raffia fringe with digital prints and heavy metal accessories. The raffia was used for neckpieces and tiered skirts, giving the collection a playful feel, while copper belts and silver bib necklaces looked edgy. Motifs for the digital prints ranged from shiny silver streamers to blurred dots, and ensembles that mixed the motifs were eye-catching, fun and on trend. Simple shapes like striped or printed tees, tapered pants and sheaths allowed the prints and textures to take the spotlight, while black drape-y jumpsuits looked chic and sophisticated. The eclectic mix was an innovative take on the ethnic inspirations that have appeared over the past few seasons.
