William ‘Willy’ and Jean Burstein set up the first Feathers boutique in 1968. Originally situated in Kensington High Street during the heady days of Biba and Kenzo, Feathers can today be found as the largest independent fashion boutique in Knightsbridge, London.
Over its 45 years Feathers has been at the forefront of helping establish emerging talent and with its diverse brand mix it has since cemented its reputation as one of London’s most innovative and interesting shopping experiences.
Today Feathers is run by second and third generations of Burstein’s. Husband and wife team Suzanne and Peter were joined by their son Robert in 2013, and together they continually source fresh designers that compliment Feathers’ niche, innovative spirit.
Feathers offers a haven of contemporary design that includes, Rick Owens, Ann Demeulemeester, Junya Watanabe, Jil Sander, Sacai and Haider Ackermann, to name a few.
