The Felder Felder show was one of the last of a long day of shows, so it was a pleasant surprise and a great pick me up when they held a little party beforehand. Your enthusiasm tends to wane after all that queuing and rushing about between venues, but presented with a Baileys cocktail I was instantly energised.
|As one of the sponsors for the show, Baileys and the designer twins (Annette and Daniela) created a special cocktail called ‘Baileys and Felder Felder Duet cocktail’ – see below for the recipe.
To continue the party atmosphere, Kate Nash looking gothic wearing a black suede flared dress (Felder of course) sang live as the models strutted the new collection titled ‘Broken Wings’.
|Inspiration came from finding beauty in unexpected places.
The collection shows a fragility as the confident and sexy leopard print has really changed it spots into a print of broken butterfly wings.
|The broken butterfly wing is also shown as delicate chiffon embellishments on sheer sleeves and skirts.|
|Another print was a unique abstract palette of scorched and ruined pictures taken by an old Polaroid.|
|Trousers were of loose sheer georgette fabric and worn over backless halter neck playsuits.|
|The chiffon fabric fluttered lightly whilst thin soft leather and suede tailored pieces kept the collection anchored. Here shown as a midnight blue textured patchwork jacket with a basket embossed leather mini.|
|Suede was super soft and light. Here shown as a pale peach jacket with draped shawl lapel teamed with the cigarette pant and sheer chiffon blouse.|
|The main colour palette was soft and muted with stronger accents of classic black and a splash of deep aqua blue for that carefree holiday mood.|
|And no girl should be without a Bailey’s bottle holster! This unique bag is the beginning of the partnership of the Felder Felder for Baileys accessory. The designer duo has been appointed Style Consultants to Baileys as part of the new Baileys ‘Cream with Spirit’.
|For the brave there was the ruffled underwear as outerwear using Triumph underwear as the base. www.triumph.com
Sunglasses were from Finest Seven for Felder Felder www.finestseven.com

|And as promised here is the recipe for that designer cocktail.
