Creatures of the Wind Spring 2014: Perfect Imperfection

Creatures of the Wind will probably always be one of those labels getting accused of going too commercial or mainstream, because their first couple of collections were so not either of those things. But even if they have gone in a somewhat more salable direction, they've never strayed far from their DNA and this collection, even if it felt more conventionally pretty than others, was unmistakably them.

Creatures of the Wind will probably always be one of those labels getting accused of going too commercial or mainstream, because their first couple of collections were so not either of those things. But even if they have gone in a somewhat more salable direction, they've never strayed far from their DNA and this collection, even if it felt more conventionally pretty than others, was unmistakably them.

A varied and unusual (but still very spring) color palette and vintage silhouettes brought us into Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters' quirky, slightly eery world.

This particular collection was inspired by a pretty specific world, namely, the perfect, constantly sunny land in which the mythical people called Hyperborea lived, according to Greek mythology.

This manifested in a show that felt like a hazy, disturbingly pleasant voyage back in time. While the boxy and staid silhouettes and vintage fabrics they tend to favor felt a bit old, the colors and patterns were decidedly modern. As were the shoes: another perfect collaboration with Tabitha Simmons.
