"I am reimagining what waxed cotton can be by offering prints and cleaner, more modern styling"
Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) February 03, 2016
Wendy Feller, veteran NYC and Seattle clothing designer, has announced the launch of FELLER, her eponymous collection of reimagined waxed cotton outerwear for women. The 10-piece collection includes three Seattle-centric silhouettes including the Seattle Parka, the City Jacket and The Queen Anne Trench. Solid colorways feature refined contrast stitching and coordinating Liberty of London ®floral print lining, while printed styles feature solid color linings. Select jackets also feature interior zippers to attach melton wool liners for added warmth. “Most waxed cotton coats are only available in solids and traditional body styles. I am “reimagining” what waxed cotton can be by offering prints and cleaner, more modern styling,” says Wendy.
Inspired by the drizzly Seattle weather and at a loss to find a raincoat for women that was functional, yet refined, Wendy found herself sketching her own line. By incorporating thoughtful design details and adding in pops of color, Wendy was able to successfully carve out an outerwear niche for women.
FELLER outerwear is made using high-quality imported fabric from a British mill that has been manufacturing waxed cotton since 1880. The line is designed to be worn rain or shine, and thoughtful design details like zip-off hoods and zip-out liners instantly transform FELLER from everyday to evening. Sizes range from XS-XL and prices start at $80-$245 wholesale. For more information visit http://www.feller.clothing.
The collection will be unveiled at the W Seattle on January 27th as part of the Wear Wednesday style series that runs from 5-7pm. Guests can pre-order their favorite styles prior to the July 2016 in-store arrival.
Wendy Feller started her namesake knitwear company in New York where her designs were sold by premier retailers including Henri Bendel, Barney’s New York, Nordstrom, Neiman Marcus, and Saks Fifth Avenue. After moving to Seattle in the early ‘90s, Wendy worked in-house for Nordstrom designing sweaters for the Classiques Entier line and designing swatches for the knitwear industry.
