Though clashing prints and intricate embroidery are the backbone of Sass & Bide — and there were plenty on display — this resort lineup, the first under Therese Rawsthorne, highlighted clean, minimal looks. Filled with fluid layering options, “the collection has a sense of ease and modernity with dramatic silhouettes and volumes,” the creative director said. An origami-esque white shirt, with an asymmetrical neckline that seemed to flow into the wrapped torso, was effortlessly chic and versatile enough to be worn undone. A light-catching metallic suit with dramatic flared pants was the perfect party outfit for those averse to conventional cocktail dresses. And though a silk metallic blend dress, an ode to Kate Moss circa 1993, was styled with tattered, sequined jeans in the Sass & Bide vein, it could easily be worn alone, too.

As for label’s well-known prints: This season, the ornate house-designed prints were inspired by images and patterns that Rawsthorne found in Parisian decadent interiors and on palace walls, such as the chalk scribble print on a pair of fluent pants paired with a sheer slipdress.
