Following the recent announcement that the Italian designer Miuccia Prada will receive an Outstanding Achievement accolade at this years Fashion Awards in London, we decided to pay tribute to the designer through a trend that she completely reinvented – feathers.
You can always rely on the Prada to make us rethink certain styles and silhouettes as she cleverly adapts them for a modern woman. While before you’d consider wearing fluffy feather in the boudoir or to a party, Miuccia added the ostrich fluff to tailoring, jeans and killer heels.
Other designers were quick to pick on this decadent decoration with Saint Laurent, Attico and Magda Butrym bringing some of that 1920’s glamour to their collections. Keep it fresh by choosing feathered separates and accessories, and styling them with staples like T-shirts, jeans and cashmere knits, but don’t be afraid to double up. A feather trim pencil skirt looks extra chic with feathered shoes.
