FELDER FELDER catwalk show report S/S 2016 for LFW
The pounding rain of London that beat down on the exiting venue did nothing to dampen the joyous ode to a Miami summer presented by designers Felder Felder. A beautiful stained glass window illuminated models as they marched down the elegantly lit catwalk at Freemasons’ Hall.
Made in Chelsea’s Milly Mackintosh watched on as the German-born design twins Daniela and Annette Felder presented Flamingo Flaneur for spring/summer 2016. Gorgeous tropical prints highlighted with bold flamingo feathers, stood against shimmering aqua and gold foil organzas, and jacquards – this collection oozed sensual, Miami cool.
The show began with metallic dual-coloured soft foil jackets and cropped trousers in striking gold, turquoise, bronze and pink ombré. Super-sexy is the key to this collection; gloriously extreme miniskirts, sheer chiffon full-length gowns with thigh-high splits and cut-out backs (almost biker-style) juxtaposing figure-hugging pencil skirts and midi-length godet skirts.
A standout outfit which is sure to filter down to the high street is the block colour midriff-revealing top and cropped, loose-fitting trousers in three shades of pink. Evening pieces clung to the body continuing to expand on the sensuality of the collection, with elegant black net lace and flamingo print used across feminine chiffon shirts, midriff tops and ladylike skirts.
Shoes echoed the colours and cut-out elements of the collection, with pointed high heels in beige suede, emphasising hot pink and aqua flashes, and black leathers for the evening looks. The prints and textiles for which had been formed in collaboration with the Belgian shoe designer Stefan Meuwissen.
In the designer’s own words – consider yourself “Felderized”.
