Pre Fall 19 sass & bide
16 Apr 2019
The Pre Fall 19 collection celebrates the restless heart of la rebelle and her fiercely free way of life.
A willing slave to the pursuit of pleasure, she dances to her own rhythm and dresses with intention, favouring bold pieces with noir undertones. Forever revelling in her wild side, the collection clashes textured geo and animal-skin prints such as zebra, cheetah and snake to great effect.
Echoes of her assuredness make strong appearances in high-waisted power pants, street-sweeping fulllength coats and embellished tuxedo suits. Delighting in contradiction, the collection nods to her love of fusing masculine (utilitarian cargo pants and structured suiting) with feminine (sensuous silk blouses and light chiffons), complete with a sprinkling of signature sass & bide embellishment.
A deep sensuality runs through Pre Fall’s pick of rich textures and fabrications that swathe the silhouette, with the intent to be loved and layered. The tactility of luxe leather, velour, velvet and double satin-backed crepe; the softness of Mongolian shearling, sustainably-sourced cashmere, jersey and wool melton makes for a strong starting point for the Fall season to come.
Distinctively feminine silhouettes come through in corsetry detailing, wrap-style tops and dresses that compliment curves. Colour lifts the season with pops of purple and magenta, clay, nude and beige against black, and the earthy sensuality of olive, saffron and burnt orange.
Several scene-stealing moments feature throughout the collection, including a pale pink Mongolian fur-trimmed biker jacket and show-stopping coat, a pink puffer jacket, and a gold sequin mini dress that will guarantee good times.
Possibility awaits and she always heeds the call.
