ohne titel

coming from helmet lang and lagerfeld, the duo flora gill and alexa adams launched their own line ("untitled" in german) this year.

from their site:
Rip-stop nylon and neoprene are paired with soft cashmere, wool, and gold. Plastic raffia is crocheted to appear like feathers. Fur is expertly crafted with athletic backpack elements. Tops, jackets and coats are taken from ski jackets and wool jersey is dipped in shiny silicone water-proofing.

from (for their ss 08 collection):
Their printed, body-conscious knits were developed after looking at tribal art, totem poles, and the graphic work of the French painter Jean Dubuffet; the accessories were raffia and rubber numbers of their own invention.

feathers of plastic raffia?! i think of giles deacon without the plucking of actual feathers. HOT.
