Aussie favourite Sass & Bide, had me weak at the knees from the first look. My multi-tasking skills were on full blast as I used four hands (well two) to live tweet, take pictures, Instagram and Vine; whilst trying to savour the amazing sense of achievable glamour on show.
AW13 will be graced with the aptly-named ‘Wintergate’ collection: a classic story of structure versus fluidity – a collision of opposites between man-made construction and the natural world. Picture caged bodices juxtaposed with dreamy silk. High shine finishes against delicate nude trains. It’s a harmonious tale of contrast.
Enter slick tailoring, heavily embellished dresses, dreamy skirts and chunky knitwear in a predominantly monochrome colour palette with infusions of dove grey, canary yellow and futuristic silver. Accented with sporty strappy heels and clutch bags, traditional evening wear has a sporty edge. In a signature Sass & Bide manner, an array of intricate detailing took centre stage. Delicate beading, mirror-effect embellishment and laser cut-outs had me at hello.
Wearability is the name of the game next season, and this modernistic collection is no exception.

Sass & Bide have done it again.
