Erin Fetherston S/S 2017

Shirley Cahyadi, Contributing Writer

This spring/summer 2017 collection marks the 10 year anniversary of Erin Fetherston showing at New York Fashion Week. Since her inaugural show, Fetherston has stolen our hearts and has since kept them with her dreamy and intimate collections.

This collection epitomized what it means to be elegant and effortlessly beautiful. Her models glided down the runway in their loosely fitted but spectacularly tailored outfits and flat sandals.

Fetherston reminded us of her instinct for creating alluring necklines which weren’t overt. With minimal makeup and long middle-parted hair, the collection as a whole felt very relaxed.

The palette (moonstone, dusty rose, onyx and opal) lent the collection a very easy and earthy spirit, implying that Fetherston may have drawn inspiration from gems and other precious stones. Continuing with the theme of easiness, accessories were kept to a minimum. Looks alternated between long crystal necklaces, scarf chokers and sometimes chests were kept completely bare. However, a pinkish cross-body fringe clutch accompanied a sizeable portion of the looks.

This collection saw a few structured pantsuits and masculine silhouettes – and while they aren’t typical of Erin Fetherston, perhaps this marks an interesting change. Be that as it may, it was Fetherston’s talent for creating feminine dresses which really stood out in this collection particularly with the final piece – a silver chiffon goddess gown which undoubtedly deserves it’s name.
