sass & bide SS10/reuters via daylife
The venue might have been half empty due to a schedule ambush engineered by no less than the British PM – who was staging a fashion reception at Downing Street – but some are hailing sass & bide’s return to London Fashion Week after a six year hiatus, as “totally awesome” and even, the label's "best”. According to the show notes, designers Heidi Middleton and Sarah-Jane Clarke were inspired by both futurism and Argentinian gaucho cowboys, the latter evidenced in a swathe of full-legged harem pants – short versions of which were dubbed “sharems” by one wag. Teamed with the full lower silhouettes: a suite of heavily-embellished tunics, signature harnesses and singlet-like vests with elongated bretelles, as seen in the top of a male dancer’s leotard. Bodycon enjoyed a lookin via a series of embellished microdresses and a knockout pair of embellished tulle leggings. All up, a dazzling collection, and one that was accompanied by accessories from new hire Pip Edwards, including vertiginous pumps and sandals with chopine platform soles. With a new London store on the agenda, and talk of even moving to London, the duo may never return to the runways of New York. Click here for more images on the LFW website.
