Felder Felder SS/11 & Hannah Marshall SS/11

So after waiting a good hour to watch the gorgeous Felder Felder show and the amazing Hannah Marshall show we fnally got to see the stunning shows and amazing pieces.

F.Y.I Sheer fabric is a definate trend for SS11.

At Felder Felder, specifically with regarding the colour palette, the show could have been confused as a fall show, what with the yummy smudgy earthy colour tones throughout and the stunning suede and leather fabrics used. The overall look hinted towards the 1970's,especially with the big bouncy hair, me thinks the backstage was awash with hairspray, the hairstyle kinda juxtaposed the skater dresses that addressed the catwalk after some key looks. These dresses reminded me of the Louis Vuitton fall/10 show but a hell of a much shorter: more girl-like than lady-like. Again we saw the on-trend-for-ss/11 sheer fabric (darn, I'm gonna have to hit the exercise bike hard this winter and cut down on the christmas pudding)alongside feminine loose fabrics. I like to think of the sheer fabric from Felder Felder,as disco fabric: the last look was a black bodice covered with a long sheer overlay, studded with sequins.

A great show: fabulous, wearable pieces.

On to the Hannah Marshall show. Before the catwalk begun, we were shown a very seductive fashion film, (a Rankin film...I mean who else?!) that really highlighted the collection and what we were about to see.

(see the video here)

The looks to kick off the show reminded me of a sexy secretery. All dressed in black but with sheer fabrics: showing parts of the body that should be hidden at an office. The blouses were gorgeous, again in sheer fabric, black, but the cut and the simple detailing of the blouses were stunning. There were sexy, skirt suits to be had (never thought I would say that in a sentence before) with pencil skirts, sheer tops and boxy suit jackets. There was one key piece which I absolutely loved, it was a long black coat with the back cut out and panelled with sheer black fabric.

As the looks came walking through our secretery began to cover up a little but not with a frumpy granny cardi, or boring black suit jacket but with full body con dresses with added, gathered ruffle neckline and layered material pieces stitched to the hips and shoulders....a fabulous modern take on the elizabethan ruffle, these pieces had hints of couture really.

At the end of the show, whilst the models all walked the walk, seeing the collection together you can really see how tonal shaded, literally with each piece, the show was we started with a sexy secretary dressed in nothing but black and ended with an empowered Hannah Marshall woman, the colour of chic smudgy grey.

As soon as the photos hit the net, I will upload my favourites. Did you guys catch the show? Thoughts?
