Trend: For the Birds

For as much as I love leopard print, snake print doesn't move me. I'll be skipping over that Fall 2011 trend and heading straight for feather motifs. I like that the different bird prints feel fresh and organic while maintaining that neutral status that leopard print has fought so hard to claim. I particularly like how Mulberry has paired the print with a classic '60s shaped dress and how Rag & Bone has trimmed the mixed feathers with a modern jet black cuff. Elizabeth & James' take on the burgeoning trend is typically crunchy, but let's not forget that we're dealing with feathers here.

Oh hadn't seen much for this! I am also not 'in love' with snake print, this feather print looks so much better! Love that cuff shirt.
