Sabinna SS18 London Fashion Week
With her SS18 catwalk presentation, Sabinna challenged the foundations of fast fashion; in a world where the industry seems to encourage shopping for the sake of shopping, what makes a piece timeless and special? This ethos is very much what underpins what we do at The Glass Pineapple so we were fascinated to see how this particularly SS18 collection would be created and presented.
Objective Memories celebrated a feminine silhouette with softly tailored pieces in shades of palest pink, bold reds and navy blues. Sabinna’s signature use of floral crochet in a high-necked halter dress was beautifully executed in pale yellow and lilac with a flared hem. There were ruffles aplenty, incorporated into everything from blouses to dresses, as well as a beautiful baby pink floral shift dress with a 60s silhouette.
Sabinna the designer is inspired by crafts, passed down from generation to generation – particularly in her family - and used to create an aesthetic that is ageless, delicate, and enduring.
Botanical motifs featured heavily throughout the SS18 collection, with elements of delicate floral patterns adorning everything from a kick-pleat tunic in powder pink to a navy dress with bold red accents. These themes also appeared on a ruffled collar blouse in this season’s palette of reds and pinks, and a beautiful rosy oversized knit with a collar of statement asymmetrical petals.
We have followed Sabinna for several seasons now and her shows always strike the right balance of nostalgic femininity and contemporary style. Objective Memories was the perfect illustration as to why a little bit of every woman is a Sabinna Girl.
