Texture has been a key focus this season, with many designers playing around with surface; from knits and quilting to fringing and fur, creating innovative and dynamic new pieces. However, the stand-out texture has been feathers. Taking inspiration from nature, designers such as Erdem, Alexander McQueen and Chanel have incorporated feathers in their collections, whether it has been plumes of birds of paradise, ostrich or rustic pheasant feathers.
