Thanks to a slew of brands fluffing up the runways, sartorial plumage was everywhere this season, from Prada and Saint Laurent to Attico and Christopher Kane. Why the feather flurry? Swaying between playful and opulent, it adds a touch of glamour to the everyday.
Shake a tail feather in Christopher Kane’s modern, fluff-trimmed dress (as seen on Alexa Chung), or walk on cloud nine in Charlotte Olympia’s boudoir-inspired heels. Attico’s flamingo-esque, all-over-feather dress is a standout, while Staud’s patent box bags make a subtler reference to the trend.
To style these statement-making buys with your existing wardrobe, offset the theatrical overtones by teaming with more androgynous designs: opt for a simple T-shirt, boyfriend jeans and a looser blazer for hi-lo perfection.
