Staying true to its signature style of playing with clean silhouettes, fresh colors and prints, Creatures of the Wind cast their new season collection on February 7, 2013 during New York Fashion Week. “Candy” is the name of the newest Creatures of the Wind fall/winter 2013-2014 collection and this is far not because the line brought lots of sweet pastel shades, flirty spring-appropriate silhouettes and nature-inspired prints. Instead, Chris Peters tried to explain this in a more surrealistic way: “You know how candy doesn’t look like a real thing? It looks like plastic but there’s an appeal of this nonreal thing to it.”
In fact, Chris Peters and Shane Gabier looked to the works from the eighties Memphis art movement for inspiration As a result, the Creatures of the Wind fall/winter 2013-2014 collection brings voguish, simplistic pieces created to be worn, rather than eaten. Coming in flashy tones of juicy orange, heathered pink, deep olive, purple, dark emerald green, as well as camel, cream, white and black versatile colors, these pieces also feature interesting Swarovski embroidery details, vinyl, polyester, colorblocking techniques, masculine touches, leather inserts, as well as colorful jacquards, checkered, abstract and geometric prints.
“We both feel like this collection is very much us but you can see a buy in a more clear way,” Gabier stated about their gorgeous collection.
The Creatures of the Wind fall/winter 2013-2014 collection brings an array of pleated skirts, uniform-like square dresses and tunics, short-sleeved dresses, boxy tops, plaid varsity jackets, structured coats, wool blazers, as well as cool maxi dresses and skirt suits. The looks come finished off with pointy-toe high-heeled shoes matched with colorful socks, sunglasses, flower embellished ties, sunglasses and waist-accentuating belts. What else does one need to love the cold days of fall?
