Here at Sassy, we’re all for trying out fresh exciting things, discovering brands that are new to us and sharing them with you guys – just in case you hadn’t heard of them either! So when we were invited to PINKO’s Fall/Winter 2013 preview, we couldn’t be happier with what we saw. Chic, feminine and easy-to-wear outfits, totally covetable evening gowns and accessories… if PINKO weren’t on our radar before, we’re definitely going to keep an eye out for them now!
Hailing all the way from Italy, PINKO aims for a contemporary, cosmopolitan, sexy and feminine feel. This season, their collection hits it spot on with some amazing pieces in their White Collection. With 1950s shapes, candy colours and some kickass vintage floral prints and leather to put a punch in the whole collection, this collection definitely offers a lot more than just plain white.
Every girlie girl loves all things soft and pink, and these pastel shades, woolly jumpers and chiffon skirts would be perfect for that first date or café trip on an autumn afternoon. This baby pink dress with ruffled sleeves and sequins to match brought out our dreamy side – ideal for an office day, followed by a party afterwards… and hopefully a run-in with our very own Prince Charming!
Black is, of course, the most flattering colour on everyone, and black dresses are probably every girl’s wardrobe staple. PINKO had plenty to choose from – with discreet cut-outs for work, chic sheer panels for formal occasions, and a combination of both with added bling for party time! These dresses cinch in at the waist, disguising any wobbly bits whilst still showing off your curves.
A biker jacket is a total fall staple – but PINKO’s version brings a bit of a twist to the rock chick classic. We loved how one of their jackets came with a blue lace body so you can get the look without the sweat, whilst another boasted vintage floral-print sleeves making the ordinary leather biker that much more chic and feminine.
What’s a perfect outfit without accessories though? Rock it out with some pumps, loafers or creepers and round it off with a cute backpack to match. Backpacks can fit the world in them and give off a fun, younger vibe to boot!
Prices are on the pricey side – around $2-3000 for separates and $4-5000 for dresses or coats (with the full-blown evening dresses even more) – but it might just be worth it for a couple of these unique statement pieces in your wardrobe.
