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.

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!

New Trend for A/W15 – Graphic Print

Our lovely Feather & Stitch customers are often eager to know “what’s in?” for the new season, so we thought we’d tell you about one of the hottest trends for Autumn/Winter ’15.
 
From the fashion shows in all four cities, one of the most vibrant of the new season trends was a bold, graphic art-inspired mood which came in every shade imaginable. ‘Checkerboard’ featured, alongside coloured, cube prints as designers presented their intricately geometric patterns.  
 
Two of our favourite brands – Custommade & Des Petits Hauts – have delivered on this trend in a stunning and super-wearable way, sticking to a largely monochrome pallet and classic shapes. 
 
So, go graphic with your knit, coat or shirt, team it with your DL1961 denim and you’ve got a casual but sophisticated look that’s fresh and oh-so-current!

Transition into AW15 with London’s coolest label, Pyrus

Whilst some of us may not yet have gone on our summer holidays, here at Feather & Stitch we are already excitedly turning our attention to dressing for the new season. Just arrived and definitely whetting our appetite for Autumn/Winter ’15 are these lovely transitional pieces from PYRUS, the brand whose mantra is “Effortless London Cool.”

We love the bold, floral print and pop of colour in the statement Frome blouse and featured in the ultra-wearable, Celeste dress. All made from 100% silk. Another key piece in this pre-collection is the Quill top; a classic t-shirt shape that comes in both a stunning tangerine and a rich, charcoal blue.

Our top pic? It’s got to be the Iris wrap blouse. Playful yet sophisticated, this gorgeous blouse simply needs to be teamed with our DL1961 jeans, heels and your favourite necklace and you’ve nailed your look for a cooler evening.

Summer season outfit inspiration: part 2

It feels so good to say that summer is here at last. Let’s hope it’s here to stay because the number of outdoor events on the Feather & Stitch calendar is growing exponentially. This week I’m focusing on the more relaxed events we’re attending because putting a stylish yet casual outfit together requires the same careful consideration as a major social occasion, so today we’re drawing the fine line between being over or under done.

We’re really looking forward to the school Sports Day at the end of June; call it our competitive nature but we want to win style points well as the adult egg and spoon race. To wit we are eyeing the delicious Des Petits Hauts strappy silk dresses in a watermelon or star print and our flat Billi Bi sandals (we didn’t want to do the wheelbarrow race anyway). Add a cropped jacket or longline cardi if it’s a cool day.

This summer we’re also heading to a family friendly festival with a group of friends and all our children in tow. I toyed with the idea of wearing a bohemian dress but the reality is a pair of relaxed DL1961 boyfriend jeans and a Rails sleeveless Britt shirt are going to be far more practical on the day and considerably easier to launder after the event (insert ice-cream spills and hot dog stains here). Speaking of practicality, I’m going to pair this outfit with the leather sky blue Liebeskind Biggi bag; it’s zippered, has oodles of space and tassles. What more could a festival-going mum ask for?

Lastly we’re planning a few day trips and picnics throughout the summer holidays and need an outfit that can be styled any which way, which is why I’m choosing the Des Petits Hauts Kimoli Dress for these occasions. It’s made from 100% cotton so it will be cool even on the stickiest days. The ecru colour tones beautifully with a hint of tan, plus it layers beautifully over skinny jeans. Put simply, it’s a great all-rounder.

Summer season outfit inspiration: part 1

The Chelsea Flower Show marks the start of the British summer social season and now it’s upon us we’ve been thinking long and hard about what we’re going to wear to the unmissable summer events on our 2015 calendar. First up are summer weddings, this year we’re bucking the trend of a dress and instead looking for silk separates like our Munthe silk trouser suit (available in cream or navy). A trouser suit will help you to stand out in a sea of dresses and the pieces can be worn separately to different events across the summer giving your wardrobe greater versatility. The matching silk blouse is also available as a tank with a racer back design, perfect for keeping cool on hot days. Wear with seriously great hair and heels, accessorise with our Becksondergaard O-Ida leather clutch purse.

Munthe, silk, silk trouser suit, silk trousers, silk blouse, printed silk, Munthe, silk tank, silk blouse, silk top, printed silkWe’re attending Royal Ascot this year and wouldn’t dream of flashing our thighs at Her Majesty the Queen, which is why our oversized silk Kokoon dress is our go to for this event. Paired with Billi Bi flats (because we’ll be walking on grass and don’t want our heels to sink into the turf) this dress epitomises that cool insouciance so often lacking in the overly tight, restrictive attire race goers have been sporting of late. The key to wearing this look well is simplicity, the dress has impact enough so keep jewelry to a minimum (those Dior pearl earrings would be a dreamy match) and team it with a beautiful clutch.
