Sass + Bide
Sass +Bide used contrast to create harmony via mixing navy and white polka dots with sequins and bright silk, which felt bold and refined at the same time. Strong metallic and tribal beading formed a beautiful alliance. If there was one thing that left viewers pondering, it was how could “opposing forces” possibly work so well together?
Vivienne Westwood Red Label
Vivienne Westwood wholeheartedly believes in fashion and fun as one unit. Through adapting historical garments into more modern pieces, Westwood shows no restraint, which is what we often love most about her. Over-the-top hair and makeup imposed even more sculpture to already exaggerated suiting pieces, as trousers, jackets, and blouses were untamed, and extravagant in dimensionality. For the eclectic designer, fashion continues to be a living political expression and art form warranting conversation, even decades after her brand’s inception.
Jonathan Saunders traveled back in time to a period of graceful femininity by using a delicate, “sugary” palette of colors, simple sundresses, negligees and pinafores that were reminiscent of the 1950s wholesome housewife. Traditional fabrics, such as pin-dot printed cottons, jacquard, and silks kept things orderly, while ombre skirts, and dresses paired with sheer silks broke free of the old-fashioned, retro air as if to say cheers to the modern woman in all of her relevant roles.
