Lanvin wowed us with these stunning Birds of Paradise themed windows, located at their Rue du Fauborg St Honore location in Paris. We loved their use of feathers to create ethereal wings as backdrops for Lanvin’s luxurious looks. The choices of colors for feathers seamlessly outline the beauty of these clothes and shoes.

Kate Moss looks stunning no matter what she wears, but we especially loved this month’s Harper’s Bazaar cover! Kate is featured in a white ostrich feather top, which adds a little bit of fun to her elegant red lips and dark lined eyes. Photographer Terry Richardson captured her wild side while wearing an amazing Ralph Lauren Collection feathered cape. This black and gold cape combines rooster and ostrich feathers for a luxurious yet funky look. You can get Kate’s cover look by using our Ostrich feather boas or feather shawl!

Weekend Picks : Snow White and the Huntsman

Haute-Couture Queen For costuming, SWATH employed one of the best in the business, three-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood.

“Snow White and the Huntsman” : There’s something dark and mysterious that we love about this modern take of Grimm fairytale  Snow White.  Without a doubt, what catches our eye the most are the luxurious costumes that were made by Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood! Just by looking at these movie stills and trailer, I imagine that many women will be inspired to make their very own Queen Ravenna  Halloween costumes. Luckily for you, we can get you started with a pair of Black Iridescent Rooster Coque Wings  and Black Rooster Coque tails by the yard, just like the one’s used by Colleen Atwood!

Haute-Couture Queen
For costuming, SWATH employed one of the best in the business, three-time Academy Award-winning costume designer Colleen Atwood (“Alice in Wonderland” 2010, ”Memoirs of a Geisha” 2005, “Chicago” 2002). Hundreds of costumes were required for the film, including 12 major costumes just for Theron’s Queen Ravenna, all of which required hundreds of hours of labor. “There’s a collar made of Stag Beetle horns. There’s actually a dress made of beetle wings in her wardrobe. There’s a wedding dress for her, which is at the beginning of the movie, that has a huge collar made out of really fine, almost skeletal type bones. She also has a cape made of cock feathers that have been carved and sculpted into a shape on a cape. I call it her transforming cape because she becomes birds when she wears it. So all in all she’s quite the haute-couture sort of queen, but with an aged, rotting edge to her,” says Atwood.
