It's no secret that I'm not a big fan of 70's style, so a lot of the Spring collections have been a little disappointing for me. However I am really getting into one apparent Spring/Summer 2011 trend; marabou accessories! In the spirit of Marc Jacobs' most recent Louis Vuitton show; I'm embracing camp tastes, and loving it.

From earrings and belts at House of Holland to neck pieces at Giles and Yves Saint Laurent; marabou (the material often used to make feather boas) was rife on catwalks across the globe and is an undeniable trend set to sweep the high street come Spring. In the kitsch-est possible interpretation of this, I want to channel a bored 60's housewife and am lusting after some fluffy shoes, very Mad Men - or Carrie in Sex and the City (season 6, episode 2).

Apparently Christopher Kane is way ahead of me and has already shown these marabou masterpieces in his 2011 Resort collection. WANT!
