Aquaknots! Feral Childe's Spring/Summer 2012 Collection is Aswim with Exotic Coral and Aquatic Horses

Shoal Shift in Flowerstripe Print, Silk Crepe

Feral Childe continues to be one of my favorite eco fashion lines (and fashion lines in general!), so I am especially excited to share part of their Spring/Summer 2012 collection with you all on Eco Chick.

Not only are their colors and patterns always interesting and always different, but they are immensely wearable and very well-made. I have been wearing the two blouses and two dresses I have from FC for years now – literally! Take a look at their site to see all the pieces from S/S 2012 and also a close-up at their hand-drawn and always-unique patterns.

Besides being designed and sewn in NYC, Feral Childe’s designers use eco friendly textiles, which include supersoft organic cottons, silks, Cupro, Italian metallic cotton and hempcel.
