Futuristic Feathers

Futuristic Feathers

graphic visualizations of 'birdy' military accessories

Dynamic Duo – Meriç Canatan and Fatosh Erhuy are London and Cologne based designers who use feathers to create wearable fashion pieces. Together they have worked to create the ready to wear “birdy” accessory line which includes pheasant feather fascinators, headbands, guinea feather bowties and plumed scarfs.

“…’birdy’, a set of adornments for individuals to supplement their outfits. from epaulets and bowties, to fascinators and headbands, Canatan and Erhuy employ feathers as their chosen medium in which to question gender norms, referencing the way in which birds and other fowl use their plumage to display body language.” – 


They kick it up a notch with their avant garde collection “birdy 2214”. This collection showcased at the 2014 istanbul design biennial & takes us to the year 2214 with futuristic militant feathered designs. Covered in a variety of Pheasant and Turkey Plumage; Gas Masks, Grenades and Helmets have never been so fashionable!

“…for the 2014 istanbul design biennial, the duo elaborate on this work with ‘birdy 2214′, in which the wearables transform delicate feathers into garments of protection. it is comprised of experimental relics, military accessories such as gas masks, helmets and knee pads, that speak of a future time. precisely the year 2214, where civilians have adapted to constant military occupation and where the associated attire and gear has become commonplace and fashionable, customized for everyday use.”-
