Creatures of the Wind Fall/Winter 2015-2016 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Creatures of the Wind. It’s such an intriguing name, coming from intriguing beginnings. The inspiration for the name of the fashion brand founded in 2007 by Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters was essentially an 1957 recording by Johnny Mathis that was entitled “Wild is the Wind” and included the brand’s name in its lyrics. It officially launched into the fashion market with a formal spring/summer 2011 collection and has appeared on fashion shows since then. The brand is driven by a simple concept and narrative, that which takes its inspiration from subversive subcultures and mythological themes, focuses on the youth and translates it all into garments that you would be a fool to miss out on. According to the founders, the Creatures of the Wind fall/winter 2015-2016 collection showcased today on the New York Fashion Week runway shows off “definitive moments of American culture as viewed through a psychedelic lens.”

Indeed, such beautiful creatures graced the catwalk with the Creatures of the Wind show, presenting the loveliest garments yet seen today, especially in the form of tailored pantsuits. The metallic with black in semi-feline patterns, the sheet tops and abstract floral prints, the fur coats and star studded scarves; everything caught our attention on the runway. Wide brimmed hats reminded us of the olden days in the European world, while the pin stripes gave us interesting ideas about the looks and the flared sleeves brought olden day nobles to mind. We have fur and we have tweed, as have midi skirts and trousers galore. Cropped pant suits and blue infused tartan designs appear en masse. Black and white outfits put together to create awesome pieces also appear on the runway, while the midi skirts also give way to mini dresses.

The shoes that appear in the Creatures of the Wind fall/winter 2015-2016 collection include shiny black latex in half boots and their white with black accent variations. It includes shiny black loaders and laced brown alternatives to the same design. Stretch based grey-teal shoes also appear, along with some fabric versions, while the toes are shows in suede camel hued ankle strapped platforms. These also come in mahogany and black. The V-stretch designs also come in white, while the black and white half boots change into camel with black accents. Out of all the shows staged till now and that are yet to appear, Creatures of the Wind seems to have the biggest collection of shoes within this line-up.

Of the whole, two district pieces are worth a special mention: the metallic silver with black almost animal print style dress catches the eye, especially since it appears to be so out of place among the rest of the trousers and the skirts at midi or mini hem levels. It’s got a high neckline, a black crop tank chest and moves straight into the metallic and black print with a black belt wrapped around the waist. It is exceptionally beautiful and world wonderfully as eveningwear for the more conservative but style-savvy individual. The second piece that appears entirely out of place is the sheer blouse in black that shows off all that is and isn’t there underneath. This includes a nipple tease in a crafty manner. The metallic with black also makes an appearance along the lower edge of the blouse, while the legs are clad in together straight trousers and the shiny black boots that keep appearing among the line-up. All in all, this is a fantastic collection that is worth taking a second look at.
