New label for AW16 takes boutique by Storm

Danish brand, Storm & Marie, is the latest label to hit the rails of Feather & Stitch.  Combining minimalist design with a rock-chic edge, the brand embodies the cool Scandinavian style that many of us covet and love.

The capsule collection is made up of beautiful silk pieces in russet tones; a key colour palette of the season. The pieces are individual enough to be mixed and matched with your basic staples, such as jeans or leather skirts, however also combine to make great outfits.

The orange Nadia silk dress has buttons down the front and a drawstring waistband. It looks great with black ankle boots and a slouchy cardigan in the day, or heels and gold accessories in the evening.

The Nadia silk trousers and top are luxurious with a fun twist. Featuring an afghan hound in copper tones against a black background, you certainly won’t spot anyone in the same outfit at the party. It’s a totally unique and retro design, printed on well-cut pieces. Wear together or play safe with black separates; or go bold with a clashing print, like the Wall shirt in a gingerbread colour.

Last and by no means least, the copper Fazela short sleeved top and long sleeved blouse will take you from summer to autumn; day to night. Wear at work with black trousers and gold accessories and make a statement in the evening with a leather or floaty skirt, a black blazer and a gold clutch.

We have an additional 1-2 pieces in store which aren’t on the website, so please do come and have a browse and a try on if you can. Shop the collection before it goes, as we’ve ordered a small selection to keep each piece relatively exclusive. Enjoy.

Transitional pieces to wear now – PYRUS

Recently I’ve been questioning whether summer got the memo about turning up in 2016 and with our SS16 collection now on sale, it seems that taking a look at the transitional pieces for AW16 is the only right thing to do.

Cult London based brand Pyrus needs no introduction to our regular clientele. Renowned for their perfect lightweight silk pieces and colourful prints Pyrus is a go-to brand that really should be on every woman’s radar this year. When the temperature can be 10ºC in the morning rising to mid 20ºC in the afternoon an outfit has to be versatile and layering silk pieces with a cardi or jacket is an ideal solution to this problem. Floral and botanical prints remain a key look for AW16. Taking inspiration from geometric patterns and delicate flora the resonance print on the Nymph sleeveless blouse and the Annie pussy-bow long sleeve blouse adds a vintage feel to thoroughly modern designs.

The dark blue of the Ocelot print immediately caught the eye of our lead stylist. She suggests pairing the tailored high waist trousers with one of the matching tops, killer heels and our gold accessories for a full impact look or if you shy away from wearing head-to-toe print simply wear with a flattering black alternative piece.

Adding demure sparkle to a look is great for day-to-night appeal. The Sophia batwing tops and the Anina waterfall jacket do just that in just the right amount. I would caution however that we have limited stocks of the Anina jacket so do pre-order yours now to avoid disappointment.

Put a spring in your step at Feather & Stitch

April evokes a fresh sense of renewal in our lives and here at Feather & Stitch HQ we are a buzz with new outfit ideas and eagerness for the season ahead. Top of our list is a simple wardrobe refresh. We’ve carefully packed away our thick knits and heavy cashmere to make way for breezy silk blouses from brands such as Des Petits Hauts, Pyrus and Sacks; lighter than air cashmere from 360º Cashmere and soft cotton shirts from Hartford, Swildens and Project AJ117.

Pyrus is our go to brand for elegant silks when we want to add a punch of colour to a look. Perfectly cut to flatter all body types the SS16 Pyrus collection epitomises the effortless, sleek style sought by our clients.

Pyrus, silk top, silk dressHartford is new to the boutique for SS16. We have an affinity for chic French brands and Hartford’s playful yet demure dresses and shirts are a must have for casual weekends spent either in the city or at the beach.

Sack’s is set to be a sell out brand at Feather & Stitch this season. Their Iranian silk pieces are irresistible and every woman needs a pair of beautiful joggers in their sartorial arsenal; think of
them as lounge wear you wear everywhere dressed with flats for daytime and strappy sandals and cute purse for evening.

Sunset Orange

The new season is upon us and at Feather & Stitch HQ we are delighting in the radiant hues of SS16’s inspirational sunset oranges. This welcome shot of colour has come at just the right time, we are so over winter and wellies!

Essentiel’s bold and beautiful deep coral v-neck dress is simplicity itself  to style; pop on the matching wedges and you’re good to go. There’s even a matching coat that will add finesse to a casual day-time look for instant day-to-night appeal.

Essentiel, orange dress, orange coat, orange wedges, orange sandals

We’re going to be layering the American Vintage tees with lightweight cashmere cardigans and DL1961 denim while it’s chilly and then switching up the look with a Hartford blue chambray miniskirt because when the temperature starts to climb so do our hemlines. If you prefer a lightweight trouser to a skirt in summer we recommend pairing the American Vintage tees with Sacks printed silk trousers in sapphire blue, with a hint of coral running through the print they tone well for an effortless look.

360º Cashmere have delivered a superb muted orange lightweight cashmere sweater complete with a scoop hem, 3/4 length sleeves and a cute pleat detail on the back. We’re going to wear this with the Sacks joggers in olive and flats for casual and dress it up with our light grey American Vintage denim and a gold Muru pendant when the occasion calls for understated sartorial elegance.

Parka London

Look no further than Parka London for your go to winter coat this season. All of our traditional Parka London coats are fully lined and come with faux fur details that aren’t just for show, these coats are designed to keep you snug and stylish no matter what mother nature throws at you.

The Lara coat is the classic choice, the exterior is made from a dry waxed cotton and nylon water resistant fabric and the faux fur interior is detachable giving this coat true trans-seasonal wearability. It’s available in both dark green and black.

Parka London, Parka, Coat,

The Ida coat is a lightly padded luxurious water resistant parka with a drawstring waist enabling this coat to be cinched in at the waist to suit you. The deep pockets give you the option to leave your bag at home for countryside hikes as they will easily accommodate keys, purse, water bottles and as many conkers as your children can find!

The Selby coat is a step away from a traditional parka look, it is a long line check blanket coat that creates a modern silhouette. It will function as a key piece in your wardrobe this season; throw it over any outfit for an instant style injection.

Capes & Coatigans

During the trans-seasonal months of September and October it can be a challenge to find weather appropriate outerwear; it can be too hot for a thick winter coat but the morning air carries a distinct chill requiring extra layers to fight back against the cold. Coatigans and capes are the perfect solution to this wardrobe conumdrum and we have a strong selection to choose from this autumn.

This checked coatigan from Parka London hits all the right style notes (Fiona has at it home fyi) and pairs beautifully with the Custommade Elsie scarf.

Next up are our stunning Becksondergaard capes, which can be restocked as the season goes on so don’t panic if you’ve missed out (the grey sold out very quickly and will be back in stock in the next few weeks) just call the shop on 020 8332 2717 and register your interest.

Our Essentiel Antwerp check coatigans are incredibly flattering being soft to the touch while retaining a subtle structure to the fabric. They pair beautifully with skinny jeans and boots.

Lastly we hope you’ll love this 360ºCashmere funnel neck cape as much as we do. As you’d expect from a premium cashmere brand the Ornelia cape is both beautifully soft and light. Layer it over a simple tee like the Des Petits Hauts Tia t-shirt and a pair of DL1961 jeans.

AW15 Coats & Jackets

Now it’s September we at team Feather & Stitch investing in our new winter coat. We think a good coat not only has to keep you warm through those long days of winter but most importantly it has to make you look and feel fantastic. It has to be cosy, chic and versatile enough to work with your entire wardrobe. This season we’ve been overwhelmed with choice. From classic camel to statement check, there’s never been a better excuse to update your coat collection.

A camel coat is a classic and the Swildens Napelo jacket gives the classic camel a military twist.

Every wardrove should have a Parka but this season the Parka has gone super lux like Parka London’s Lara Coat.

Check print was a major trend across the catwalks and especially in coats like Essentiel’s Khamisi coat and Des Petits Hauts Lisbeth coat and Firmin jacket.

The oversized quilt coat was another huge trend. Essentiel’s Kinzafur coat with detachable fur coat is perfect.

And finally faux fur is having another fashion moment this AW. We think the Litz coat from Des Petits Hauts is simply irresistable. We hope that wrapping up with some of our favourite choices will help you not only stay cosy this AW but look super stylish too!
