London: 60’s feminist Uschi Obermaier was the inspiration behind Felder Felder’s rock-n-roll themed collection. Radical, powerful and an advocate of free love; “Half the time she was basically naked.” chuckled Daniela Felder, surmising; “It was all about the liberation of women”. And liberating it was- the models mirroring the muse in a series of transparent separates in sheer black organza- some shot through with a metallic check in blue. All paired with barely their mini skirts fit for any feminist rebel. More opaque pieces boasted wild zebra embossed stripes in matching sets and butterfly prints on flowing thigh high slashed dresses. Where the collection excelled was in it’s outerwear: Faux afghan coats and gilets in teddy bear brown had a more than a touch of Jimi Hendrix to them, whilst oversize ruby coloured faux furs made for a colourful rock-n-roll finale. – Anna Ross
