Women’s Style: Fabulous Feathers

By Kristen Shirley

In his eagerly-anticipated first collection for Calvin Klein, Raf Simons included a series of looks with plastic over-dresses and overcoats. A faux-fur coat was perhaps the talk of New York Fashion Week, but the feather cocktail dresses partially covered in plastic was our favorite. At Prada, feathers were a recurring theme: scattered across dresses, trimming skirts and appearing on fabulous scarves. Here a beaded top pairs with a seriously feathered skirt for an instantly red-carpet-ready look.
