LFW: Felder Felder 'Born to be Wild'
'Born to be Wild' was the name of Felder Felder's SS 2011 collection, inspired by 'an imaginary muse, a rebellious downtown girl fascinated by the free spirit era of Easy Rider, The Trip and the Lizard King, Jim Morrison."
Whatever Annette and Dani Felder do, it's cool. Leather and studs have been a big part of their signature look and they figured here as well. The leather, black and electric hues of blue and pink, were slashed up exquisitely like twisted slats on jackets and pants - the texture echoed on printed dresses - while the studs came in the form of metallic flecks to add soft, pretty texture to leather and chiffon. A collaboration with ic! Berlin on sunglasses also featured Felder Felder's unique studding.
By this point it's apparent that no wardrobe is complete without a piece of Felder Felder - I still can't get their leather and chiffon jacket from AW 2010/11 out of my head!
Felder Felder showed back to back with Hannah Marshall and drew a frenzied crowd that included Paloma Faith in some crazy gold and black headgear (see below, left), Erin O'Connor, and Kanye West's ex-front row companion, Amber Rose. Curious photos will follow...
