The Creatures of the Wind Fall 2014 collection sought to bring a luxurious edge to the brand, which is just three years old and relatively new to the New York Fashion Week scene. The essence of its collection can be summed up in a statement from Creatures of the Wind, citing the focus on "easy Eastern dress and non-Western patternmaking."
The Eastern influence is most apparent in the collection’s kimono-style wrap silhouettes and prints. Elements of luxury come into play with materials like brocade, taffeta, velvet and stunning moirés, that naturally have the appearance of a wood grain. The whole non-Western inspiration leaves quite a few Eastern countries to be inspired by and this can be seen in the collection’s vibrantly varied color palette, patterns and forms.
