Made in New York City, U.S.A.
Join Feral Childe on an expedition to Tarquinia, an ancient Roman city known for its Etruscan frescoes and mosaics. Dreaming of this seaside civilization, Feral Childe created watercolor collages for new digital silk prints depicting divers, revelers, and artisans. The silks, textured organic cotton knits, Hempcel linen, and other fabrics, are laser cut, looped, and pleated into a wearable catalog of amphora, fish, birds, and plant life in earth and vibrant colors. Made in New York City’s Garment Center.
Feral Childe is a womenswear line by bi-coastal design duo Moriah Carlson (Brooklyn, NY) and Alice Wu (Oakland, CA), who both come from a fine arts background. Each season, Feral Childe's collaborative drawings form the basis of the collection's textile prints, wry construction details, and absurdist accessories. Feral Childe combines thoughtful choice of materials and attention to quality construction to make smart, wearable silhouettes for forward-thinking women. Feral Childe is proudly manufactured in New York City.
History: When Alice and Moriah first met (back in the 20th century), it was over a sink full of broken eggshells they were hired to wash for an art installation. The fast friends imagined creating a compact wardrobe for their new lives in New York. In their next day jobs, each worked in an office and faxed the other drawings and ideas every morning. In their off-hours, the pair scoured downtown for uncommon fabrics, tried their creations on each other, and draped and slashed at the clothes until they were satisfied. Alice and Moriah made up stories to go along with the results of this wild and untamed creative process and called it FERAL CHILDE. Taking their outfits to the streets, passersby stopped them on subways and in stairwells, asking where they could buy such clothes. Feral Childe's playful silhouettes and curiously elegant tailoring gained a devoted following, at home and abroad, among young and old, traditionalists and renegades. Today, Feral Childe is represented by independent-minded stockists who display Feral Childe clothing and accessories among their rarest finds.
