Felder Felder's mixed fabric, feminine concoction at LFW
Feathers, sheer, PVC...it was all going on today at Felder Felder's show. Treated to subtle, feathered nylon, silky organza and a variety of peplums we were spoilt for choice by the Felder sister's SS14 collection. Lucky for buyers, the collection itself was as edgy as it was commercial.
The designer duo started things feminine and floaty as soft sheered suits and sweet, nylon feather dresses took to the runway complimented with a large, oversized pant layered underneath (Bridget Jones eat your heart out). Things got a little spicier as the element of PVC came in to play, used in dramatic, tapered skirts and serious, folded peplums. As the collection carried forward, the FF signature prints were introduced followed by a hint of quilting on bodices.
The collection told a story through it's colours as we were tempted with a crisp white in the beginning, mixed with dusty pinks and beiges until a selection of underwater blues floated along the runway and finishing with hints of navy and rich, gothic black.
Dresses were clinched in with modern, silver belts to emphasise skinny waists whilst models feet were adorned with appropriate coloured strappy sandals and point-toe heels. Hair was scraped back whilst tinted frames sat on nude faces.
Even though perhaps some of the suits were a little too sheer for a lunch out with the relatives (plus PVC is a pretty hard look to pull off for work) it was clear that many of the dresses were very sellable. This ready-to-wear collection ticked all the boxes for me in terms of what a runway show should be but also, simple tea dresses made it extremely wearable - pair with metallic sandals and a sunhat and you're ready for Spring 2014.
