Nature and colour has combined their fibres for Felder Felder’s A/W 2014 collection. With a wool or hemp fabric running throughout the pieces, modern injections have been inserted into dresses, skirts, Sunglasses and tops to wake up natural colours that normally can be seen as a little plain. It reminds me of the colours of a moor or valley that is being touched by Rainbow.
When using such thick and textured materials, the shape used has to stay pretty simple otherwise the fabric can dominate the item and the designers have done this well. Bra lets, strapless dress and manly coats give a mixture of masculine and feminine for the wool pieces but more quilted, womanly pieces are splashed with colour and sheer to really give the collection a softer side for Felder Felder’s winter wear.
