Creatures of the Wind Spring/Summer 2015 Collection – New York Fashion Week

Little did the graduates of the Department of Fashion Design of The School of The Art Institute of Chicago Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters know that they would reach this immense success when they founded their own clothing line called Creatures of the Wind in 2008. In this short period of time, the designer duo has managed to create a unique distinctive fashion style. Today their collections are presented at some of the most prestigious fashion shows, they have recently received Vogue Fashion Fund award for ¬up-and-coming talent, which Gabier considers “an exciting honor” and they have already managed to win the CFDA Swarovski Award for Womenswear this year.
The Creatures of the Wind spring/summer 2015 collection Shane and Chris presented at this year’s New York Fashion Week turned out to be very relaxed and extraordinary, but yet full of contrasts. Knowing about Christopher’s love for everything old and antique and Shane’s interest in everything modern, we sure were expecting this. The color tones were mostly neutral and soft, nothing too bright or dazzling (with very few exceptions!). Floral and checkered patterns were dominant on shirts, skirts and dresses.

The overall style of the Creatures of the Wind spring/summer 2015 collection was not too distinctive in terms of femininity as we saw outfits that were quite feminine and ones that were less so. For instance, first there came those subtle white sleeveless long dresses with blue floral patterns that remind us of blue and white china, elegant black dress with thin beige coats, black leather skirts falling below knees with a red v-neck blouse, white skirts with a blouse with colorful floral design, a dark purple dress with hints of red and gray (who knew those colors would go THIS well together?). No less spectacular were the combinations of short tops with pencil skirts and matching vests, and glossy and glittery tops with maxi skirts. All so feminine and elegant! And then we saw arrangements of white and blue high collared blouse with wide yellow pants, patterned sweaters and dark purple pants with massive belts, black pants and long striped vests that are still perfectly elegant yet not so feminine after all.

The accessories perfectly complemented the images as well. As accessories we saw black and white striped sandals with platforms and heels, shoulder bags of textile-again in the same tones, and black chunky leather belts. The hair of the models was held in loose, messy ponytails, which made the looks even more laid-back and relaxed.
The creators of the Creatures of the Wind may be comparably new to this industry, but that will not stop us from confidently claiming that the Creatures of the Wind spring/summer 2015 collection was one of the highlights of today’s fashion events. And this is only the beginning! We really hope you are as excited about tomorrow’s shows as we are!
