Creatures of the Wind Spring 2013
Chris Peters and Shane Gabier placed a special emphasis on shape and technique when designing their Spring 2013 collection for Creatures of the Wind. "We wanted to push the feminine silhouettes toward these almost hard and aggressive volumes and proportions, but keeping them light and airy," Peters said. To that end, he and Gabier offered generous skirts, dresses, and coats that tended to swing away from the body, but kept them girlie with bright colors and plenty of eye-catching geometric prints. Sharp tailoring created the edge the designers were after, while detailing like the snakeskin arms on a crisp white blazer and the Swarovski crystals decorating the bottom of one cream-colored skirt kept up the visual interest.
