For Creatures of the Wind's Fall 2013 collection, designers Chris Peters and Shane Gabier showed an eclectic mix of geometric and painterly prints, checks, plaids, and bold stripes of color that were sometimes mashed together in colorful patchworks. But this show, their second on the runway, also drew on clean-lined menswear staples. More than one model walked out wearing a notch-lapel topcoat or a white dress shirt with stripes of vinyl on the sleeves. The combination of the quirky ideas that have gotten them so much attention — and made them runners up for the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund in 2011 — with the need to make clothing a wider audience can relate to made for the duo's most polished collection yet.
