OSTRICH TRIM

The Look of Love | Ursula Andress in Casino Royale

We recently watched the film Casino Royale and couldn’t believe the amount of feathers that were used in the costume designs. From Natural White Coque Tails to luxurious Ostrich Floss and Boas; Ursula Andress as Vesper Lynd embodies the Look of Love in the ultimate spy spoof of all time; Casino Royale 1967 .

CasinoRoyaleCollageHere are some of our favorite movie stills featuring the stylish Vesper Lynd in her feathered best. We especially love the Ostrich Floss Feathered turban and Natural White Coque Tail Feather caplet she wears.

Fashion Week SS16 Feather Round Up

Fashion Week SS16 Feather Round Up

Fashion Week SS16 feather round up was difficult for me to pick my favorite designers.  There was a mixture of unique feathered garments to admire… But if we have to pick a favorite collection I would have to go with Sophie Theallett.  She mixed sexy silhouette with a powerful slim fit golden suit embellished with bleached rooster coque tails that add a little drama. Sophie Theallet also uses goose biots in her collection, it adds little edge to a cocktail dress. You can clearly  see her love for Africa in this fun and energetic spring line up.

Comme Des Garcons, YDE, Givenchy and Nina Ricci favored ostrich in their spring lineup. Ostrich feathers always adds a feminine touch with a glamorous flow to a dress or gown. YDE mini dress is sassy with an elegant flow using ostrich fringe. Comme Des Garcons is very advant garde with ostrich feathers you see the influence of Bjorks Biophila tour, in my option which I love! Valentino used peacock flue in their African inspired collection of dresses crafted with color bands of raffia or the pleated goddess gowns, with peacock collars inspired by modern day Nubian queen. It just goes to show that you can always use feathers in any season for in any collection or influences.
