J.W Anderson 2017 Winter Feather Fashion

To tell the truth I am a bit confused if these styles are from this winter or last winter, but hey what difference does it really make?

It's all mostly fashion eye candy and inspiration fodder anyway.

“inspiration fodder”

I just came up with that and I really like it.

This first article that I read about this line up was from last year, but I found all the designs mentioned on the Vogue website for this year. So you can come to your own conclusion.

Here are the two links so that you can have a look for yourself.

http://wwd.com/runway/fall-ready-to-wear-2017/london/jw-anderson/review/

http://m.en.vogue.fr/fashion-shows/defile/pret-a-porter-femme-automne-hiver-2017-2018-londres-j-w-anderson/20686#defile-35

From what I understand he pumped this line out right after a full line of men's wear.

The thing that I like best about it is that it seems very glamorous but yet practical. Like stuff that normal people might wear out.

Of course they would be very rich normal people, but you know what I mean.

These three outfits are not crazy full of feathers but they have a lot more than just a feather fringe also.



The leather jacket it a very nice wintery touch, and it comes in two colors.

But I have one question that is really killing me and it has to do with this leather jacket.

Just because you are wearing a leather jacket, does not mean you are dressed for the winter.

So what is up with the above outfit?

Miu Miu – Fall Feather Fashion – Feather Skirt

So this is a really beautiful piece.

In my humble opinion the price tag is a bit high, just a bit over two thousand dollars. Here are two pictures of the skirt.

But the thing that really interests me about this skirt is the company that makes it.

Miu Miu was created by Miuccia Parada.

And is a fully owned subsidiary of the Parada group.

Now I know that I even mentioned in my last part that I have written about the Parada group before.

http://thefeatherstore.blogspot.co.il/2017/01/parada-group.html?m=1

But after I see them all over the place it causes me to start thinking. 

Maybe that are part of one of those secret old society's like the free mason’s or something.

Don't we all just love a little conspiracy theory.

Fall Feather fashion - 2017

Get ready to see lots of feathers in this year's fall/winter fashion lines.



Just from the first two things that I saw it seems that the feather trend is going to be bigger than usual this year.



I am just going to start off with what was written in vogue and after that I am going to show you a super easy DIY project that can make a great Christmas gift.



Yeah that's right, you need to start thinking about those already.



http://www.vogue.co.uk/gallery/autumn-winter-2017-feathers-trend-guide



So this article by vogue is a great, super short history, of our modern day feather fashion.



And then at the end they give you a nice little intro to this year's feather fashion trends.



I just picked this picture to share with you because I thought it was really interesting.



It's a style by Prada which I have written about in the past.



The second thing that I read was this post on refinery29.com.



http://www.refinery29.com/2017/09/172869/feather-fashion-trend



They have a great collection of awesome feather fashion for this year's fall and winter.



But the one that I wanted to talk about is this feather trim hoodie from Opening Ceremony.



But the problem is it not available anymore.



The good news. .. It's super easy to make your self.



All you need to do is get some of our feather trim and sow it into the inside bottom part of your favorite hoodie, and bam there you go.



And like I said, it can make a great Christmas gift.



Bye for now.

Matthew Williams – Ostrich Feather Trimmed Dress

Coming across this dress was a short and pleasant adventure for me.

I first found it mentioned on the website lyst.com quoting another site farfetch.com, where it was being sold for $2,513.

https://www.lyst.com/clothing/matthew-williamson-ostrich-feather-trim-lace-dress-nude-neutrals/

https://www.farfetch.com/de/shopping/women/matthew-williamson-kleid-mit-strau-enfedern-item-10956144.aspx?utm_source=laurenlyst&utm_medium=affiliate&utm_campaign=PHUK&utm_term=UKNetwork

If that seems like an crazy amount to you it is simply because you are not buying fashion designer clothing. I only mention this because I think it’s a crazy amount to spend on a dress, but because I write about the fashion industry all the time I know what this kind of apparel are going for.

The thing that we need to understand is these are not just clothing, but works of art.

This dress truly is a work of art. From the patterns of the lace upper through the long ostrich feather trim, everything is put together perfectly.

True talent can be seen in the way the green lace pattern gradually gives way to the feather trim.

Farfetch.com, where the dress was last being sold is in German. Thanks to Google these language barriers have been torn down while surfing the internet. But the description of the dress said NUDE colored, and thought that this might be a case of bad translation, but its not.

After being educated on nude colors, I had to find a bit more about the designer Matthew Williamson.

Matthew is British and born in 1971. If you really want to hear all about his carrier here is a link to the right page in Wikipedia.

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Matthew_Williamson

For me these are the highlights.

Matthew is known for his bright colors. In 1997 he displayed the “Electric Angels” at the London Fashion week. I find these designs to be breath taking.


In recent years Matthew Williams has produced his own line of home decor. His taste in interior design is right up my ally, absolutely incredible.

DIY – Stage Worthy Feather Fans

Now I know that have written in the past about how to make your own feather fans, but these girls totally took this to another level.



Billy Wilburn and Corey Shelsta
South Dakota State University Theatre

These two wrote out in detail how they made these fans so if you are interested in such a project you can take a look at their link below.

http://www.stolaf.edu/nbs/NBS_May_11/ProductionCasebook/ProductionCasebook.html

What they say in the beginning is very true, these fans are a bit expensive, but if you are not into the project you can buy the fan HERE.

But if you are going to go for it with this kind of project then we have just the feathers that you are going to be needing.


If you try this out, take some pictures and share them with us.

But just recently I cam across a bunch of pins that were really great.

This detailed instruction post on how to make a stunning feather trim necklace really takes the stage.

Here is the link to the pin:

https://www.pinterest.com/pin/86623992811153411/

Danielle is a real DIY, home made blogger that’s been at it full force since 2011.

If you ask me though this project of hers is something that should be coming out of a designer school.

She did such a great job with this project I am amazed. Look at these detailed pictures explaining exactly how to do this.

Brown’s Feather Trim T-shirt

I know that I already wrote one about feather t-shirts, but this one is special.

Not only is the t-shirt itself stunning, but the company Browns, just seems so super cool.

So lets start off with this super cool shirt, and then we can talk about the great company that is selling it.

They say it will make you feel like  a lemon, and if that’s not good then drink a tequila. Yeah that’s not really what said but its what I heard.

Never mind what they wrote, first take a look at the shirt.


But you should read what they wrote, because its cute and funny.

https://www.brownsfashion.com/uk/shopping/feather-trim-t-shirt-11982820

Also as I said they seem to be a super cool company just take a look at the about page.

I love it that they are really into looking for new talent.

Go Browns!

Detachable Feather Trim Jacket

I know that I have written about how you can easily add feather trim to jazz up just about anything, but the idea of a detachable feather trim is a new one.

I got the idea from this great jacket from ZARA.

https://m.zara.com/il/en/-c434811p4226015.html#utm_referrer=https://www.google.co.il/




Think about how easy it would be to attach feather fringe to a piece of material with buttons and be able just snap it on to your jacket, dress, or whatever.

Even better you can have a few different trims that can attach to the same dress and change it up every time.

Take a look at all of our fine feather fringes and see what you can put together.

And of course if you do share some pictures with us on Facebook.

Lipsy Feather Trim VIP Dress


I found this stunning dress on a website called ASOS.com, and it was out of stock.

Not that surprising being that it is amazing and was being sold for 33 BPS.

Here is a link to the web site, you should take a look at the video to get a real feel for the dress.

http://m.asos.com/lipsy-vip/lipsy-vip-feather-trim-dress/prd/2433573?CTAref=Recently+Viewed

Lipsy, which is the company that makes the dress seems to be really cool. The reason I had never heard of them before is probably because they are British.

Funny that makes such a difference, but you know that it does.

Lipsy seems to be a super cool company. They have a whole section called DENIM DOLLS & BRINGING THE 90’s TO NOW.

Any of you who have been following me for some time already know that I have a weird 90’s fetish.

And the denim? Remember this post

http://thefeatherstore.blogspot.co.il/2017/06/summer-series-feather-shorts.html?m=1


Anyway they also have a very nice feather high heal shoe that has already sparked my desire to write a new feather shoe post.

I hope you are all enjoying the summer!

Scarlet Johansson Feather Skirt

This past March, the American actress Scarlet Johansson showed up to the premier for her new movie “Ghost In The Shell” wearing a super cool feather skirt.

From what I read even the long custody battle that she is going through with her ex-husband didn’t stop her from being in good spirits.

This is no big surprise, Scarlet grew up dealing with difficult situations. She tells how her family was on welfare when she was a child.

If she was able to come from something like that and get to where she is today, she must have learnt to cope very well.

Ghost In The Shell seems to be a cool movie about a super cop in the future that needs to stop terrorist that have learnt to use mind control.



Right the feather skirt! Very cool, and I also love those boots.

Feathers For The Festivals – Summer 2017


 A while back I wrote about feather costumes at burning man, and that they had banned them because the feathers were just to hard to clean up afterwards.

Now is  that still the case? I have no idea.

But hey burning man is not the only festival that you can rock some killer feather threads, so have a look at some of these great ideas for your next rainbow gathering, or whatever you are into.

Now for starters here is this great headpiece. It could of come strait out of the Lord Of The Rings movies.

It must be real gold because its being sold for almost 300 dollars.

http://www.thefrisky.com/2016-04-05/free-people-expensive-cultural-appropriation/?amp=1

Then I found this cape, I didn’t check how much its being sold for but here the link.

https://www.etsy.com/listing/512195375/luxury-black-feather-festival-cape

Cool right?

And here are just a few more feather festival pictures to inspire you.



Remember that you can get all the feathers you need to make your next festival a feather dream come true from featherstore.com.

Oh right and how can I not add this crazy picture of the lady with a feather head piece and the boa constrictor.

Pheasant Feather Dresses – Summer 2017

Of cause I have already written about pheasant feather dresses, but because they are just amazing I am going to write about them again.

Also I am pretty sure that it has been a few years since I wrote about them, and I definitely didn’t have these great pictures.

I split these into three separate categories in my mind. One for each dress.

The wild

The theater

The runway

In the wild, like in this dress things grow large, and have beautiful colors.

Pheasant feathers seem to go great in all scenarios, but the wild natural setting is was seems to fit them best.

Now the wild needs to be tamed for us people. True that not allways is this the case, many times the wild goes very well on the runway.

But as far as this dress here goes, the wild has been given very straight edges and an office executive type feel. Yes but still its very wild.

And then we have the theater stage, which seems to be the combination of the two.

This pheasant feather dress has a very elegant vibe to it. It gives off a feel of the middle ages.


It could also be the gown worn by the queen of some mystical people.

Peace and love to all.

Summer Series – Feather Vests

To hot for a feather Jacket or coat?

Try a feather vest to add some glamor to your casual summer wardrobe.

Take a look how good this feather vest looks with a pair of jeans and t-shirt.

Or in this picture, see how a feather vest added to a pair of tights and a t-shirt can just make the outfit.


But not all feather vest are as simple as the two above mentioned.

Take a look at this one.

Extra feather flare for your summer clothing selection.

Now these are all just the tip of the iceberg when talking about what you can do with feather vests.

Add some feather fringe to the bottom.

A cool feather design on the back.

As always, the possibilities are endless.

Summer Series-Feather Summer Skirts

Of course I have written post about feather skirts in the past, but to the best of my recollection I have never posted these pictures before.

Now to be totally honest with you all, I don’t remember where I found these pictures, and the source is really not relevant for the purpose of this blog post.

I just want to share with you some great looking summer feather dresses, and maybe give you some good ideas for you summer wardrobe.

Just take this first picture for example.
This colorful feather mini skirt can be made very easily by attaching two or three layers of Coque fringe to any plain mini skirt.
Look how great that looks with a casual t-shirt and denim vest.

Ok, those shoes do give the whole outfit a bit of a non casual look, but it is still something you could wear to the mall.

This next piece is not a skirt but a one piece feather dress.

I added this elegant white, feather fringed dress any how just because it is totally for the summer.

Straight and colorful with a professional feel, this feather skirt is great for a summer day at the office.

At least that’s what I think when I see it with the blazer she is wearing.

Here is something to wear for a summer night out on the town.

This black ruffled feather skirt and leather jacked are perfect for clubbing.

Now you all Know that I usually stick with actual feathers, but some times I come across a feather print that I just must share with you.

This feather print wrap around is just such a case. Its perfect for that summer day that you want to go out to eat on your way home from the beach or pool.
