Yesterday, we saw Creatures of the Wind Fall collection which was inspired by the Scottish clergyman Robert Kirk’s “The Secret Commonwealth: Of Elves, Fauns and Faires”. As Chris Peters explains to T Magazine, the clothes rely on concepts of juxtaposing parallel existences. This is explored by the combinations of fabrics and the idea of transformation and transition. This was the first time Creatures of the Wind created proper evening wear as can be seen in some more flowing airy and romantic materials and shapes.
