Tweet This: Fashion Flips The Bird
Animals take their turn on the runway almost as often as Creative Directors (I can’t keep up! Sander in; Simmons out…Pilati out; Selmane in… and Lam leaves Tod’s!).
This Fall, the who’s hoo of fashion have a new furry friend, or should I say flocked to a new feather and paraded a new mascot down the runways. Owls take place of last season’s Givenchy’s rottweilers and black panther adorned bags, blouses and smocks.
At Jean-Charles de Castelbajac, a collection in which every look composed of an avion flux, graphic prints , a bold trifecta of primary colors: yellow, cobalt and red. Touching on a 70’s macramet meets macaroni mosaic style execution, Burberry and Anna Sui featured owls beaded on tees, knitted in sweaters and shaped as hats.
And if it didn’t appear in full form, the owl aesthetic took shape as framed eyes and jeweled hardware.
