NZFW 2011: Sultry Sabatini

Monday, August 29, 2011

Local success story Sabatini opened New Zealand Fashion Week today, with a show celebrating their 20 years in the business.  Although the first proper day of shows isn't until tomorrow, it was the perfect day to be down at Bellini bar at Auckland's Hilton for a glamourous morning of fashion.  Sabatini were showcasing their Sabatini White Autumn/Winter 2012 capsule collection 'Many Happy Returns' which was really gorgeous and totally luxurious.

Berry hues and rich shades of navy, brown, red, purple, burgundy and brown made up the suitably autumnal colour palette.  The knitwear Sabatini are so well known for was intricate and detailed with amazing textures complemented by tiny twinkly diamante embellishments.  The silhouettes were short, sexy and sheer with lots of lingerie also on display under the garments.  My favourite piece was this amazing red 'ballerina' dress worn by Ella Verberne (below) that is an absolute showstopper.  Sabatini presented a really beautiful, luscious collection which is a perfect celebration of an amazing label's stellar achievements.
