When in doubt, put a feather on it. Henry Holland’s latest spring ’16 collection at London Fashion Week featured a bevy of footwear adorned with various feathers and plumage, used as a sort of fringe treatment on heeled mules and below-the-knee boots.
The bird-like look had feathers arranged as a band overtop the vamp of the shoes. Some were done in all-black, others had the feathers colored in a sort of ombré treatment, graduating from white to pink tips.
The mules were styled with retro tube socks, which matched the sporty collars seen on the ready-to-wear. The leopard print boots, meanwhile, literally resembled a wild animal when paired with the feathers.
One can always count on Holland to have a sense of humor with fashion, and this season he did not disappoint. Plus, with the street style success of Gucci’s fur lined loafers this season, perhaps these shoes will be the next big style star?
