Now that we have all had some time to breath (phew!) after the Spring 2014 fashion shows we are excited to share with you our round up of all the feather trends and styles from this season! Feathers can be seen every season but we were especially blown away by how innovative designers were with their uses of all different types of plumage. Lesser used feathers such as Stripped Rooster Coque Tails, Goose Nagoire, Pheasant Tails, Rooster Hackle, and Turkey Quills were spotted on the runways. Check out Gareth Pugh’s goddesses above and Alexander McQueen’s out-of-this-world looks below that seem ready to take flight!
Erdem (below) used Stripped Rooster Coque Tails for interesting three dimensional texture and ostrich for a feminine feel.
Giles (below) created volume by using full Ostrich Plumes for Spring 2014.
A pop of color and texture of ostrich feathers made a bright statement at the Thomas Tait show below. DIY with our 2 ply Ostrich Feather Boa!
Tufts of Ostrich Feathers make a feminine statement at Rachel Comey (below left), while a more full look is seen at Robert Rodriguez (right).
Moschino Cheap & Chic (below) targets the flamboyance of youth with full Ostrich Feather hems. Don’t miss the shoes too, such a great DIY idea!
Marabou Feather Boas made a comeback in a big way on the Sonia Rykiel runway (below left), while Tadashi Shoji showed working woman chic with Ostrich Fringe details.
… and more Ostrich Feather details at Bluemarine! Jil Sander (below right) went in a completely different direction by using Rooster Hackle Feathers for a more streamlined and shiny look.
Moncler Gamme Rouge took feather fashion by storm by using Chinchilla Rooster Feathers for a wild, safari look.
These last few shows we especially loved because they featured feathers as accessories and statement pieces- Feathers make great details and they are not just for clothes! Below is Prada showing us that Rooster Coque Tails make stunning bracelets and headbands.
Bronze Turkey Tails, Imitation Eagle Quills and Turkey Quills as head wear accented the simplicity of the clothing at Nicholas K (below left). Y-3 used hand painted and dip dyed Turkey Quills as hair accents against basic sportswear.
Junya Watanabe created quite a stir with her showstopping head dresses created using Venery Pheasant Tails and Lady Amhearts Center Pheasant Tails.
