ELECTRIC FEELS PF18
Posted on 04 June 2018
Pre Fall 2018
For Pre-Fall 18, sass & bide plays on the theme of connectivity through the senses. The energetic charge that is human contact and the intrinsic relationship we have with nature is celebrated in a tactile and softly luxurious collection.
If you touch something, you leave a charge on it and anybody else touching it connects with you – El Anatsui, internationally acclaimed Ghanaian sculptor.
Hand-drawn prints reflect the collection’s inspiration, with stylized & personal sketches of foliage contrasting with the geometric raised patterns. The human touch inspires velvet-textured fingerprint motifs on voluminous, crinkled sheer layers.
“Leave a charge on it” is embroidered as a message of human connectivity and positivity around necklines, and printed in linear dot braille on lightweight georgette layers.
Electric Feels represents an emotive and sophisticated collection, where senses are heightened and natural elements combine for an urban and polished aesthetic.
A rich colour palette of warm cinnamon tones and accents of spice and orangina is contrasted with neutrals of gilded pink, dark petrol blues and black.
