Sally LaPointe Frothy Feather Fashions

by Cristina Muñoz Brown on November 30, 2016


Sally LaPointe Frothy Feather Fashions from her S/S 2017 runway are among our favorite feather trends this year. Ostrich feathers and fringe always seems to be the most popular of feathers among fashion designers! Luxurious white, black and olive ostrich fringe, sheer fabrics and sparkling embellishments dominate this party-ready collection.

“As always, LaPointe delivered it all with a dose of sex appeal, from feather-embroidered bustiers to a body-hugging pink cashmere dress. On the more casual side, her black and white high-waisted denim styles, which laced all the way up the front of the leg, will be a surefire hit.”-

by Cristina Muñoz Brown on November 18, 2016


Here’s an upclose look at Prada’s S/S 2017 Feather Details with almost every single piece having a delicate trail of Ostrich Feather trim or boas. Creamy Ivory, Mint, Blue Jean, Lemon, Dusty Rose and Cinnamon feather fringe adorn a patchwork of elegantly tailored fabrics. Miuccia Prada said backstage …

“I decided I wanted to…do something much more simple [than the recent past collections], and kind of trying to find a new way of elegance,” she said backstage. “Elegance sounds [like] an old-fashioned word, but also [stands] for something meaningful, cultivated….We need at this moment something personal, intimate, real, more sensitive somehow.” –
