sass & bide resort 2014

After several seasons of presenting almost exclusively monochrome collections, the girls at sass & bide finally seem ready to inject a bit of colour back into their lives, but in a much more subdued way than they have in the past. The angelic whites and deep blacks still played a major role in this collection, but sass & bide have introduced a dark bronze, pale teal anda splash of bright orange for Resort 2014. All of their signatures are there, too: the tribal embellishments, the asymmetric hemlines, the sexy peekaboo cutaways. And, of course, it wouldn't be a sass & bide look book without some seriously lust worth art direction; from the first look shown with a pair of dramatic angel wings to the oversized elephant tusks and dismembered ice-cream cones in between, each shot was more inspiring than the next. As for the collection, sometimes it can be difficult to see yourself wearing a full sass & bide outfit every day of the week - the piece often make such bold statements that can be hard to pull off each day - but this season was different; the collection was slightly more varied than in the past as the girls showed not only their signature mind blowing-ly gorgeous gowns and cocktail dresses, but also a selection of jackets, shorts tops and jeans that we could see ourselves wearing every day. They're moving beyond showmanship and onto more wearability -- now that's a movement we can get behind.
