A/W 11 FELDER+FELDER

Photobucket

Getting into the Felder+Felder show was a mission in itself; the queue outside the Mayfair Hotel became a scrum as fanatic show guests battled with suitcase-wielding tourists to get in the doors. I really take my hat off to the PRs in these situations. 
Inspired by stormy nights and the freedom of nature, the Felder+Felder girl at the beginning looked like she'd spent the night in the woods, and taken on some of its textures. With a moody palette of petrol blue and moss green, it was really the dark lipstick which sold me on the spot at the first look. It was a form-fitting and sexy collection of studded leather, suede and tufts of goat fur, reminiscent of those troll toys you stuck on the end of your pencil; who would have thought they could inspire such an alluring look? The digital print on dresses and biker jackets which I first imagined were inspired by bark were actually  was taken from the abstract blow-up of the feathers of an owl.  My favourite pieces included the studded leather minidress and a mongolian wool A-line puff skirt in black and white.
