Leather, lace, lamé – no textile is off limits for Creatures of the Wind duo Shane Gabier and Chris Peters, the up-and-coming mixologists of the Stateside fashion scene. The Chicago-based pair were runners up in a prestigious CFDA prize that has seen them collaborate on a collection for J.Crew. Their collections are inspired by far-reaching references – sailors’ wives and fairies, anyone? –and are made up of perfectly unexpected pieces that just work. No wonder their star is so quickly on the ascent.
