Trust Sass & Bide to bring in the big model names to round off the first day of London Fashion Week – Cara Delevingne and Jourdan Dunn both took a turn on the designers’ catwalk for S/S 12. And they did so in a wardrobe of almost all white, accents of black and sprinklings of gold and silver. The invitation, with its white background and golden origami decoration, was an indication of what was to come, the same folds enveloping waists on mini dresses, or translating into sequin-capped sleeves. “It was an exploration of the genders. We were trying to counterbalance the feminine with that masculine strength,” explained Sarah-Jane Clarke and Heidi Middleton. The cravats with a white flower attached were a perfect example. The duo had travelled to Peru and Buenos Aires, and it was the feeling of the places that had the most resonance. “We really enjoyed the process of this collection,” they said, adding that they were pleased to be back in London after skipping last season. “We found ourselves getting London pangs.”
