Feral Childe S/S ’13


Sustainable label Feral Childe’s new collection The Searchers was inspired by American classics like My Ántonia and The Grapes of Wrath, by the idea of both taking care of the land and being sustained by it. The label’s designers went through the Library of Congress archives of 1930s Farm Security Administration photos, of the Dust Bowl and its effects upon the landscape.  The result is a simple, wearable collection; it’s modern and the inspirations aren’t taken too literally. Still, I think I can see a few nods to the ’30s in some of the dress shapes and lengths.  And that grey homespun-type fabric above is very Willa Cather on the Nebraska prairie.

    This is a great collection, and I love the simplicity. Everything ties in together so well, as if you can have a full wardrobe out of this collection!

    This is a beautiful collection – and one where you can really see the concept and inspiration very clearly in the clothes.
