New York Collections Women: Creatures Of The Wind AW13
Creatures Of The Wind are one of the new, much talked about labels to emerge from the New York fashion scene. The design duo showcased a laid back and ultra cool girl aesthetic for A/W13 with an unexpected mixture of fabrics. Vinyl panels were combined with hand-woven jacquard, glossy poly film, tape and shiny stripes of Swarovski crystals. There was an almost boyish quality to the silhouette’s of the collection, in particular the shirts of the first looks. However, as the collection unravelled, there was a strong sense of whimsical albeit in a restrained way with intricate panels of prints in skirts and tops. A fresh take on the down town girl from a great new label to watch out for in the coming seasons.
