Saga and Soulo Brave the Elements

Saga and Soulo Brave the Elements

A canvas of black sand set the backdrop for the Saga/Soulo show, Elemental, at L’Oreal New Zealand Fashion Week. Inspired by the ever-changing forces of nature, reeds dotted the runway and the sound of ocean waves filled the air.

Design was layered over design with a definite suggestion of modern vintage. The 40’s was a true inspiration for designer, Angela Hood. Cinched waists, pencil skirts and bold plaids were reminiscent of an era of pure femininity. The models graced the catwalk in stilettos, French rolled hair and bright red lipstick. Sleek and sexy was the essential.

Saga and Soulo merged together to bring together a unique contrast of printed fabrics and relaxed layers with fine tailoring and moody tones. Narrow belts cinching the waist and textured fabrics offered a new twist to the array of short tailored jackets. The mid hue spectrum was balanced by bright red and yellow accessories.

The live music of internationally renowned DJ Rob Salmon surrounded the collection. Rob, who has just recently returned from NY, combined elements of jazz and house music to compliment the range.

The show was fantastically chic and upbeat in much contrast to the moody NZ winter. Elementally superb!
