Erin Fetherston Presents "Beneath the Bluest Sky"
Influenced by the bucolic impressions of David Hamilton and Deborah Tuberville, Erin Fetherston presented her Spring 2016 collection inspired by a muse who is equal parts Jane Birkin and Anne of Avonlea.
The mood is of arcadian reverie. Sky blue reigns as the collection's defining color amidst a palette of earthy pastels and Victorian whites. Fabrics float lighter than air. Embroidered tulle, organize, and fluid silks are rendered in clean and languid lines, infusing Fetherston's otherwise romantic vision with a minimalist sensibility. Slips make the season's statement, both long and short, layered beneath billowy chiffon dresses or topped with pleated capelets. Prints inspired by needlepoint embroidery evoke scrolling roses and scattered blossoms. Separates offer an infusion of texture by way of pointelle knits and swiss dot blouses alongside culottes, shorts, and overalls in a range of soft denim and tweed. Fetherston introduces a charming capsule of minaudieres to her collection, each one delicately stitched with monograms and 'bon mots', perfectly capturing the convivial spirit of the season.
