#844 First look at Salasai

Backstage at Salasai with my new best good mate Emma Champtaloup. She's only about a foot taller than me. I was jumping. I was interviewed about Salasai for Radio New Zealand the other day. I confessed to the DJ that I didn't know too much about the label but that I associated it with power dressing. After seeing the show I haven't changed my mind. It's all about the big. Big knits, big sweaters, big prints, oversized layers. You can see why Rihanna's into it.

I was there again, sitting bored and amazed that i could see so many clashing elements from other designers.. (funny how above anon thought that too!)

Salasai started out from Preppy "Mook" kind of cloths to a brand that's lost.

There were so many ideas that didn't link clearly. Very ambitious move for some attention maybe?

There were Nom.d's styling VS clean styling.. outcome: Lost.

Salasai also used last year's trend; Bow-tie around neck? tie-dyed ? lace?

"wasn't this last year's trend?"
Fellow Australian reporter who sat next to me said.
