Nature’s Bold & Geometrical Allure: Pheasant Feathers

Perhaps in late Autumn the acknowledgement of the pheasant feather seems to “mark” the season for this game bird of striking plumage. The Fall season seems to bring an appreciation of nature and the beauty of the feathers of the pheasant are certainly added to this. Alas, the feathered appeal of nature within our interiors. The plumage of Pheasant feathers as decoration within the interior offers natural interest and patterns of delight. Although the variations offer unique shapes and markings, these feathers enhance and embellish wherever they are used. The sleek shape almost holds a bold geometrical pattern of natural tones that create a striking display of natural style

A Fendi Halloween

Portobello Road:

All I want for Halloween is a Fendi.

It’s not exactly spooky, but when we walked past the Fendi pop up store in Soho this week, we decided that this season’s collection had an element of costume drama to it.  From the Black Silk Skirt that looked like it had been lightly splattered with paint or even snow, to the Jackson Pollack infused By The Way handbag, this Fendi outfit could be the most elegant artist in residence costume imaginable this Halloween.

Not only is this time of year in New York officially sweater weather, but the humble chunky homespun sweater is having a major fashion moment.  From the pages of Vogue to street style mavens, sweaters are being paired with everything from a party dress to a pair of slouchy pants this season.

We’re big fans of the incredible range of sweaters from Demylee.  Designed by Parson’s graduate Demy Lee here in New York, this designer has a chunky knit to suit everyone this season. From sweaters like the Ruth Oversize Turtleneck to the perfect chunky oversized cardigan (below middle) these knits are the perfect style statement for this winter.
