Sass & Bide: Electric Feels17 Apr 2018
"If you touch something, you leave a charge on it and anybody else touching it connects with you" - El Anatsui, internationally acclaimed Ghanian sculptor.
For Pre-Fall 17, Sass & Bide explores the theme of connectivity. Sensory perception, the energetic charge of human contact, and the intrinsic relationship we have with nature are celebrated in a tactile and softly luxurious collection.
Hand-drawn prints reflect the collection's inspiration, with stylised and personal sketches of foliage contrasting with the geometric raised patterns inspired by braille. 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.
Sass & Bide is located on Level One.
