#dressthebump copy

Happy Friday! In Feathers HQ we’ve been overwhelmed with joy these past few months when we found out that our E-commerce Manager Susan is expecting twins! Besides all the mummy talks of food and nutritions for pregnancy, what we’ve been excited about is to dress the bump.

So we’ve come up with this edit, and our beautiful mum-to-be has hand picked 5 of her favourite looks from SS15.

Look 1: The Bohemian Rhapsody

Extremely comfortable and carefree, the embroidered beading details add an edge to the soft bohemian style.
2

Featuring Dassio Denim Embroidered Waistcoat(Available in store)/ Markus Lupfer Tribal Rhino T-shirt / Etro Silk Paisley Print Skirt

Look 2: The sophisticate

The classic shape always works best with a modern accent like adding bright coloured accessories. This look is office appropriate and still not compromised on comfort. This is an outfit that works for women of all sizes whether pregnant or not!

3

Featuring Jil Sander ‘Tangeri’ One button coat/ Jil Sander ‘Xiao’ Tote/ Alexander McQueen Leopard Print Silk Scarf

Look 3: Fun Times

Perfect for a day in the park or on the beach. This imaginative look brings out the kid in you and is so much fun!

1

Featuring Tsumori Chisato Greek Village Print Dress/ Moschino Iced Lolly I phone Case/ Linda Farrow ‘241’ Sunglasses

Look 4:  The Lady

My favourite look of all. Love a ladylike monochromatic look like this with a pop of colour, the vivid prints from the Etro scarf and tote makes the look more interesting.

4

Featuring Grevi Hat(Available in store)/ Tsumori Chisato Love Hem Shirt/ Sacai Luck Open Slit Pleated Skirt/ Etro Floral Print Toto/ Etro Paisley Print Scarf

Look 5:

Definitely a winner if you are looking for an evening gown that’s elegant and comfy at the same time. This Alexander McQueen evening gown has a built in corset to keep everything in place when you move around. It is certainly an investment piece as you can still wear it post-pregnancy!

5Featuring Alexander McQueen Draped Bustier Gown/ Mawi ‘Triple Firefly’ Necklace

Just when the most of us are still living in big wooly coats and pom-pom beanies, it is nice to have a sneak-peak at what’s new in store to freshen up. Here’s how we pre-plan some nice staple pieces for your Spring wardrobe:

Jil Sander ‘Tangeri’ One Button Coat/ Great for adding some colours to lift up the look if you have a dark wardrobe

Alexander Wang ‘Agnes’ Sandals/ These are uber cool and comfortable to wear, with 3.5 centimetres creeper soles to add a bit of an edge to your outfit.

Peter Pilotto Applique Tank Top/ A crisp white shirt can never go wrong. It’s even better when there are such gorgeous applique details to make the whole look more spring-y!

Alexander McQueen ‘De Manta’ Clutch/ This is a great little number to go from day to evening look.

It’s getting more and more like Christmas here in London. And this time of year for Feathers’ , it’s all about giving back to the society and helping others. We are happy to be a part of the charity event ‘Action Against Cancer’ hosted by Racheline Garston, which is to raise funds for development of cures for cancer at Imperial College.
The event was held at Claridge’s Hotel. The building itself is incredibly beautiful and well looked after. We were gasping once we entered the hall, it was proper Chrismas at Claridges! Every corner is decorated with gold and red themed Christmas trees, bird cages, gold branches and pine cones.

I couldn’t resist taking a photo of this darling zebra pony. He’s just dreamy!

The event started with cocktails and followed with afternoon tea, and of course, while our guests were enjoying the scones and sandwiches, auction started and big funds raised for the Action Against Cancer.
One of the highlights of the event was Feathers Fashion Show. Feathers showcased 24 stylish looks carefully selected from AW14 and the 2015 Cruise Collection. Let’s go backstage and show you some of the behind the scenes moments.

This year has been a fruitful year for Feathers, big thank you to all the fans and customers who have been always so supportive through out the years.

To celebrate our 40th Anniversary, we teamed up with the talented British designer Markus Lupfer for an exclusive sequins design T-shirt.

Markus Lupfer is renowned for his playful and unique approach to fashion, and that is reflected well in our collaboration. A simple loose fit white T-shirt with feathers sketches in the front, was embellished with gold, navy, and silver sequins.

It can be styled easily with a pair of patchwork boyfriend jeans from Current Elliot for a relaxed look or to dress it up with the gold lurex full circle skirt from ROCHAS.

Feathers Weekly Favourites – Outerwear Edition

With the interchangeable weather sneaking up on us, a selection of nice rainproof outerwear has become a new must-have edition to Feathers’ wardrobe. With the ‘Perfect Storm’ trend spotted on Vogue in mind, our buyers hand-picked some of our favourite pieces from the AW14 new arrivals.

Runway: Moncler Gamme Rouge

Puffer jackets are very light and warm alternatives to wool coats. With an improved cutting and use of different fabrication, puffter jackets are no longer just for travelling or ski trips. They can look very urban and smart too!

Feathers’ pick:

Herno Techno Quilted Coat

Runway: Alexander Wang

A more structured shape was seen on the runway of Alexander Wang this season, a neon parka jacket with waxy fabrication finish was paired with tailored suits underneath. A cheerful way to soften the seriousness of suits and add a touch of military chic.

Feathers’ pick:

Sofie D’Hoore Oversized Hooded Parka

Alexander Wang Bonded Trench Coat

Runway: Tommy Hilfiger

Bright fur lining for hooded parkas was seen on the catwalk of Tommy Hilfiger. A great style for girls who want a little bit of an edge to their outfits!

Feathers’ pick:

Mr. & Mrs. Furs Fur Lined Parka

Runway: Sacai

Another great design from Sacai as we see a mixture of furs was used not inside of the jacket but on the outside. The fur trim definitely gives a strong statement and also keeps you warm on a cold winter day!

A Day In Feathers- Fashion Illustration Event

Tags

, , , , ,

Thank you for all our dearest friends and customers who joined us on the ‘A Day in Feathers’ event. We had the honour of having the acclaimed illustrator Dennis Nothdruft, curator of the Fashion and Textile Museum, doing live fashion illustration at Feathers Knightsbridge Store.

 

It was a very hot and stuffy afternoon when London was struck by the heat wave. Ice cold gin and tonic was served on a rusty wooden table with fresh lemon wedges. When the watercolour and colour felt pens were laid out on the sketch pads, everyone was so anticipated and excited like school kids, waiting for Dennis to work his magic on the blanc paper.

We are surprised to see in a matter of merely a few minutes, using the free flowing ‘Snapshot’ approach, Dennis had instantly captured the spirit, essence and the personalities of the whole store. In the generation where everyone uses smartphones to record their lives, these ‘snapshots’ seem to be capturing more than photos.

Here are some of our favourite moments of the event:
