A moment frozen in time...

These are the central nostalgic themes at the heart of the Fall/Winter 2010 collection for womenswear label Creatures of the Wind. I have been a big fan of the Chicago-based brand and recently had the opportunity to stop by their presentation at Chelsea Hotel during New York Fashion Week. This collection had a vintage richness which I loved- both in theme, materials and silhouette... For Spring 2010, designers Shane Gabier and Christopher Peters designed around the theme of the vulnerable transition of a girl into womanhood with an unapologetically feminine collection and for Fall 2010, they took a converse approach - mature, ladylike pieces in vintage-inspired shapes with some looks incorporating deadstock materials such as brocade in dark blue and black with flashes of gold throughout. Think early 60s with a modern polish.
