The entirety of the Erin Fetherston spring/summer 2017 collection had everything from sparkling sequin covered pieces to smoothly floating weightless fabrics. The thought that went into every look was easy to appreciate, as each and every look was technically and aesthetically pleasing. These clothes move how many dream their clothes should move.
The dazzling sequin-covered pieces were not overdone, rather beautifully planned out with the shimmer and sparkle of the sequins drawing the eye in just the right way. This was true for all of the sequined pieces, rather than there being one or two that stood out well and the others just glittered.
A pair of peach colored wide legged pants shimmered from waistband to hems without looking like a disco ball. The same effect was seen on the jumper and ensemble pieces, which shows great planning and implementation.
There were floating dresses abound in several different lengths, fabrics and in some cases matching sheer with smooth fabrics for great effect. The colors were light but fierce, working beautifully with the exquisite silhouettes that managed to float around the body without appearing too oversized and maintaining flattering lines. There are even long slim, sparkling sequin covered scarves in this collection.
The accessories complemented rather than overpowered, meaning they were perfectly selected to be just enough. They stood out, as did the sandals, though they were not the feature. The midnight blue strappy floor-length dress was also interesting in shape but primarily color. The blue was dark and rich while still appearing soft, which is amazing.
The Erin Fetherston spring/summer 2017 collection as a whole was eye opening in its array of fabrics and flow. The breathtaking display did not fall flat with a single piece, everything shone on its own and together as a cohesively designed and beautifully implemented addition to 2017 upcoming spring and summer fashions.
This is the type of collection where there is a look for every imaginable event, meeting or outing. Casual and dressy were represented, and all in a way that would draw the eye without overwhelming the wearer or anyone nearby.
Everything had a flow to it, even the suits, which could easily be seen as imposing came off more breathtaking than daunting. The lines of each suit were smooth, the cut flattering and accessories spot on.
The dresses both with and without sequins were similarly flattering and looked incredibly comfortable to wear. One of the biggest faults in fashion is that beauty does not always equal comfort, but it is more than evident that this would not be the case or a concern on any level with this collection.
In conclusion Erin Fetherston’s spring/summer 2017 collection was breathtaking from start to finish. There are many who are already excited to purchase their own favorite pieces if not the whole line. As a collection the feel and look were widely well received and each of the 27 looks was well appreciated and reviewed.
