Micro-trend alert: Feathers!

22 September 2008


Isn't it weird how a trend can be all over the catwalk but just doesn't translate into real life? That's what we felt happened with feathers. As much as we loved Burberry's feathered dress and Fendi's jumbo feathered skirt we just couldn't imagine wearing them on the street without looking a little Big Bird-like - and clearly neither could you. Until now. It seems that suddenly feathers have blossomed (OK, we know that's florals but still) into a micro-trend. We've seen people wearing them in fascinators, on bags, bracelets and when this divine Hugo Boss skirt came into the office and we literally couldn't stop stroking it we knew it was time to embrace Big Bird. Here's our three's a trend feathered pieces to buy...
