Ranging from classic styles, like the timeless aviator design, to statement pieces, the first 10-piece Sass & Bide eyewear collection for 2011-12 brings a rich variety of forms and colors to choose from – from tortoise to leopard print, round rims to lasercut trims, and statement design being the hexagonal red frames. Each pair featured in the collection fits with the brand’s eclectic aesthetics, each design is etched with a symbol of the creative duo Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton’s friendship, a small star featured on the tip of every pair, as an ode to the tattoo the designers share with each other to symbolize their friendship.
No one will deny that sunglasses play an essential role in one’s image. They not only serve for protecting your eyes from the harmful sun rays, but also add a certain amount of glamour and elegance to your look, therefore you should pay more attention to the type of sunglasses you choose. Your eyewear should boost your beauty and should correspond to your personality, revealing your style taste and interests.
Some members of the Sass & Bide creative team, including Pip Edwards (senior creative & accessories designer), Samantha De Kauw (marketing manager), Georgina Rex (art director), Clementine Maconachie (visual merchandising manager) and “Mecks” (pr/marketing co-ordinator) joined Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton in front of the camera to model the collection for the sunny lookbook of the label. The energy, the neon, the nude lipstick alongside with the amazing eyewear create a fresh and brightening atmosphere, making us wish to own every single piece they’ve got on.
