What if the Lisbon sisters—the 5 doomed women on the middle of The Virgin Suicides—had by no means killed themselves? Imagining an alternate, happier historical past for the Lisbons impressed the Spring assortment of Felder Felder, the London-based model designed by German similar twin sisters Daniela and Annette Felder. Of their model, the Lisbons occasion their manner from Michigan to Miami and age disgracefully—suppose: The Golden Ladies gone wild. The oily blue within the metallic material of their first outfits, a sharply lower broad-lapel go well with and follow-up clothes, shone sickly slick. Banana palm and flamingo prints, appliqués, and jacquards have been scrambled and subtle as if squinted at by means of getting old eyes.
There was a potent dose of the staple Felder fare that their lushly blow-dried regulars had come to whoop for: floor-length underwear revealers, skater skirts with cutaways on the hip, crop tops aplenty, and a chiffon child doll. But there was a pitch at maturity, too—this present was concerning the Lisbons rising up, in spite of everything—in a set of Artwork Basel–applicable cream appears in silk jersey, twisted solely by the odd Lurex-piped panel or cry-for-help undone shirt. A tomato, pink, and white color-block apart was rigorously typical. And regardless of the bogus “whoa there!” conflict of pink, apricot, and gold of their tropical jacquard, the material was used to hew restfully nipped clothes, pencils, and outerwear.
Afterward, Annette Felder noticed that this type of harmonious dichotomy is one thing the designers do naturally: “It’s all the time arduous and it’s at all times comfortable, and that comes from our being twins.” So who’s the arduous sister and who’s the gentler one? “It adjustments!” each chimed in—to keep away from being onerous on one another.
