2015 - The year that was - Part 1

As 2015 comes to an end and Christmas parties start approaching, we thought it would be a perfect time to catch up on everything we've been up to at Sabo Skirt. We both had a very exciting and busy year that we think needs a recap and some time to reflect upon.

We kicked off 2015 by getting our fitness and health in order, as we had a lot of travel planned for work throughout the year. We began by implementing healthy eating habits along with regular exercise and training and really noticed a difference in our energy levels and productivity.

In March we headed to Byron Bay with our kick-ass team of creatives and our beautiful model Michaela to shoot our first formal collection for the year. The Lookbook took on a Moroccan theme with an exotic vibe and we were absolutely thrilled with the results. Here are some of our favourite images from the shoot.

In April, we road tripped from LA to sunny Palm Springs, California to host our very own Sabo Springs party at Coachella. Picture delicious cocktails, boho flower crowns, sheer maxis and beats to match. 

May was especially exciting for Thessy, as she moved into her own abode and in true Thessy style, the apartment was furnished top to bottom in what can only be described as every tumblr-lover's dream.

In June, we were lucky enough to head to Greece and Spain with our other halves (each other) and our other-other halves. We had an amazing time in Mykonos, beach-hopping around the island in a roofless Jeep and getting lost in the blue and white town centre. Santorini stole our hearts with the magnificent views, balmy nights and the winding roads from Fira to Oia on the back of mopeds. Kythera amazed us with its crystal clear water and expanses of shallow beach that we lay in for hours every day. We headed to Spain where we spent our final days on the island of Mallorca. There was cliff jumping and snorkelling in their ethereal waters by day and consuming the finest Spanish tapas by night. After three short weeks, we were sad to leave the European sun and way of life behind us, but we had a very exciting second half of the year for Sabo Skirt to come home to. Part 2 to come..

Neutrals Reinvented

2015 has been the centre stage for neutral tones, ranging from beige, khaki, brown and so on. We ourselves have become increasingly obsessed with wearing neutral toned outfits from head to toe, as seen in our first Sabo Luxe collection at NYFW. As neutral tones were seen all over recent fashion week shows, our 2015 fashion purchases look to be set to stay for the year coming. So how can we ensure that our cream basics and khaki statement pieces are updated to suit a new year of fashion in 2016? We’ll be mixing textures, tones and lengths to refresh 2015s neutral toned obsession.

Adding leather-look clutches, boots, belts and neck wraps to neutral outfits instantly adds an extra dimension and can be achieved with items that you would already have in your closet.

Wearing one-tone neutral outfits like Kim K was all the rage this year, but for 2016 we’ll be wearing neutrals in different tones to refresh the look.

Finally, we can still wear our go-to, all-white outfits and head-to-toe favourites by mixing textures. Silky pants with knitted tops, pleated skirts with bodycon crops, the possibilities are endless. The Balmain SS16 show mixed up neutral tone outfits by combining textured pieces in the same hue and can we just say - we are obsessed and inspired and cannot wait to try these ideas out ourselves.
