WHO?: Felder Felder

IN A NUTSHELL: When the show's entitled "BANG!" you know you're in for something spectacular. In typical style from twins Danielle and Annette, their spring/summer collection was dotted with gothic black gowns and 'hardware' - their signature aesthetic. So plenty of body con, biker jackets, sheer panelling and studs - complete with bondage-style leather harnesses and chokers for the very daring. But there was also light among the dark, courtesy of floaty printed dresses with cut-away backs in peppermint green and orange sorbet, contrasted with disco-ready metallic sandals and tough-look ankle boots.

BEG, BORROW OR STEAL: The block heel metallic sandals (we don't mind which colour) and one of the floaty sheer skirt maxis. Reckon we might have to forgo the harness, however.

VERDICT: Inspired by the idea of ballet dancers going 'downtown', it was all about the contrast between light and dark, hard and soft (we couldn't help but think of Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis in Black Swan.) And while some of the more hard-edge bondage-inspired looks might be tougher to pull off, we have no doubt that the achingly-cool London style set will love it. Another triumph from the Felder sisters.
