fall/winter 2013: sass & bide

Always one to keep up with the times, the sass & bide girls reported live from their London Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2013 show through Instagram under the hashtag #instawalk. Other than their of-the-minute use of technology, the girls also showed a collection that felt utterly fresh and current. They named their collection Wintergate and explored new, more sophisticated, stripped-back silhouettes and fabrications. There was hardly a sequin in sight and the colour palette consisted primarily of black, white, mustard and silver. Replacing the wildly colourful, tribal-influenced prints of seasons past were more basic, graphic black-and-white prints and textures. The sass & bide girl has grown up a bit this season and, hey, let's face it, we have, too!


Metallic knitwear played a major part in this collection.
