INSPIRATION: The Felder twins, Annette and Dani, said in their show notes they'd been inspired by a new imaginary muse, "a rebellious downtown girl fascinated by the free spirit era of Easy Rider, The Trip and the Lizard King, Jim Morrison".

TOP LOOKS: Ultra-cool, skater-girl dresses, with tough leather styling. Short hems and high heels, with embellishment in the form of laser-cut fabic, which looked like feathers on sleeves and hems, or rhinestones on bra tops and minidresses.

ACCESSORIES: Chunky ankle boots, courtesy of Kat Maconie, studded with bronze rivets, gold screws and zips.

WHO WAS THERE: Singer Coco Sumner, of I Blame Coco, whose cover of 1969 classic Born to be Wild provided the show's soundtrack.

WHAT WE THOUGHT: If you're a Felder Felder girl, it's all about attitude and the spring/summer collection has lashings of that. Leather was plentiful (even a couple of floaty, cowl-neck dresses were funked up with leather straps), while the punky minidresses, complete with 'exoskeleton' or denim prints, were right on the money. As for those bra tops, well if we start on the nighttime sit-up routine now, hopefully we'll be suitably toned by the time they hit the shops.
