Salasai AW17 at NZ Fashion Week 2016
The first show of the day was Salasai and I can tell already this is one of my favourites of the week. That always sounds presumptious like when they announce Movie Of The Year in January, but this was a m a z i n g, with cage-like framework staging that the models walked down and hen stood as an installation, amongst poster-sized portraits.
Architecture meets fashion
The show itself was a blend of architecture and fashion, with the collection presented by Taylored Studio architecture firm from North Shore of Auckland.
Stand-outs for me were the over-sized knitted tunic, and a red patterned black sweater. Silhouettes were loose and long and styled with black mesh around their necks. A dark rose print appeared on women’s and men’s wear.
