Feather Gloves Fall Winter 2016 - 2017

It's not even starting to get cold outside, it is already cold outside. I may not have started wearing gloves yet but I did take out my North face and wear it at night.

So I may have already written a feather gloves post but I definitely never saw these pictures before so get your gloves our is almost winter.

Now these Givenchy feather trimmed gloves are what came to my mind when I thought about feather gloves. Not them exactly but the style. It's not hard at all to attach some feather trim to your gloves and there you go.
Now these gloves by Adam Lambert (seen above) are really something else, super cool and totally classy. I think that I like them so much because I would have never of thought to have the feathers going in the direction of the fingers.
Ann Demeulemeester was totally being influenced by batman when designing these beautiful feather gloves.
Just to get an idea what you can make for Halloween take a look at these gloves above.

How To Make Feather Eyes

So I don't know if you would call these feather eyes or something else but they are a super great idea for almost any costume that you are planning on.
So the first step would be to buy the feathers that you need, yes obviously but still worth mentioning.

The next thing you are going to need is eyelash adhesive. There are those of the opinion that Duo surgical adhesive from MAC works better, but either will do the job.

A word of caution about glitter-use only cosmetic grade glitter, decoction glitter can damage the skin.

Next decide how you want to arrange the feathers and cut wherever needed.
Put some adhesive on each feather and press gently onto the skin.

Happy Halloween

Manish Arora

Manish Arora is a very different fashion designer in my opinion.
Manish from Mumbai and all of his creations are wild and full of neon bright colors.

When looking at his designs it's hard to believe that he started out studying commerce and then moved to design and fashion.

The best way that I could think to describe his style would be to call it "eastern psychodelic".

And if such a term doesn't exist yet then I can say I have coined it here.
Did I mention the bright neon colors?  Yeah I think his stuff is really cool.

And of course we are all about the feathers.

Albertus Swanepoel Feather Hats

Now I really like this guy. Even without meeting the guy I could just tell that he is cool.

And is not just because he is South African, but he dose get extra points just for that.

But what I really love are these pictures of him with these drop dead gorgeous women.

Never mind that, let's take a look at some of his feather hats.

Simple yet elegant.
This one below is amazing because it was made for target.
And these last two are absolutely beautiful, but I doubt you will see them on the street.

June Ambrose Feather Vest

June Ambrose is super cool in my opinion because she went into the design business without any professional training.

That just goes to show you, some people just got it.

Now this particular vest that she wore got some mixed reviews from a post on fashionbombdaily. Link to full post below.

She rocked this western looking vest with a long shirt and some wide leg pants.

Oh and of course the hat.

This is no ordinary hat that she is wearing. That is an Albertus Swanpoel original.

I am totally into the whole outfit, what do you think?
