This is a long overdue post! Sadly due to huge work load over the last two months, my reviews on London Fashion Week have been massively delayed. This invitation and press release has been on my desk for two months now, as a reminder to WRITE THIS REVIEW. However, I see this as a positive. This post will now be a stand out in the midst of everyone else’s reviews on press days (which unfortunately I did not attend). So here we go…
A long long time ago (14th September 2012) designer sisters, Felder Felder presented their ‘Broken Wings’ collection at London Fashion Week. The production was massive for the brand, including model Charlotte Free and a live performance by Kate Nash, who has come back with a bang.
Inspired by ‘beauty in unexpected places’ the sisters have looked at fragile butterfly wings and ruined poloroid pictures to draw in abstract shapes and prints presented through delicate fabrics including light leathers, silks and chiffons.
Aiming to embrace strong, grown-up women with an edgy signature style, I also saw cool, LA vibes. A woman who owns the room, intimating almost, with a style which allures others and exposes her powerful personality.
Stand out pieces were the dominant printed trouser suits and cigarette pants, a look that we have started to embrace this autumn winter. The prominent textured swimsuits and fluorescent blue short shorts and low back maxi dresses were striking in comparison to other collections shown this season. I am pleased that this collection has adopted statement colours and textures which 2012 paid attention to, and re-developed them with modern prints and accessorising the look with structured sunglasses. Can it be summer now??
