Sass & Bide’s Fall 2017 Collection Is Filled With Party Dresses

Australian brand Sass & Bide’s fall/winter 2017-2018 ready-to-wear collection hit Paris Fashion Week and it was amazing. Sure, the clothes were cool, but it was why they were so cool that matters. Not only did the outfits feature interesting silhouettes and cleverly manipulated patterns (see the wide pinstriped pant suit), but also the cuts were so interesting and fun.

Apparently the inspiration for the brand, which is more often known for party clothes and sparkly sequined dresses, was Hotel Okura Tokyo and it took a step in another direction. The aesthetic inspiration provided by the serene location led the brand to make contemporary travelling clothes, easy to transition from day to night.

The architectural theme was easy to find, but translated so well into the clothes that each ensemble just looks amazing, without there being an obvious single reason as to why. Even the accessories were touched by the source of inspiration, like the use of the obi belts.

Sophia Berman, the designer for Sass & Bide explained the direction of the brand by saying: “I think we’re evolving Sass & Bide, keeping what’s core to the brand, which is the embellishments and the sense of fun and creativity, but moving that forward, refining it.”

The tailoring was incredibly on point, which to the credit of the brand it always is, but here it was shown off to an impeccably degree. Though the inspiration is minimalist by nature, it is an inspiration, not a rule, so the embellishments and prints that Sass & Bide excels at did make an appearance on some of the ensembles. The customer base is loyal to the brand because they are loyal to their own aesthetic even while continuing to evolve and adjust. They will only continue to gain customers thanks to their stellar implementation of style.

Throughout the Sass & Bide fall 2017 collection, the different pieces showed off a working relationship with clothes, a business look, and an evening look, a lot of different options that worked out from beginning to end. The shirting that utilized corsetry, the side lacing and the use of hardware provided interesting breaks in the design as well.

The silhouettes were very complementary and intricate even when they looked simple. Just the touches here and there of the parts that should have seemed out of place worked beautifully well and that is another staple of this brand. Their creativity, though off the charts expressive, is perfectly corralled to create ideal and fashionable outfits that work out in more than one setting.

The use of the materials and designs, the juxtaposition between sleek and voluminous and many other features really set the brand apart from the others and make it exciting to see what they will show each season.
