For the Boys: Creatures of the Wind-y City


While perusing a friend’s menswear blog I got word of a great line right out of the Chi. The line is Creatures of the Wind and it’s headed by two School of the Art Institute(Chicago) alums, Shane Gabier(who you might remember from Gen Art’s 2004 Fresh Faces show) and Christopher Peters. Both designers are perfect examples of the talent that the SAIC is churning out.
I couldn’t find pics of their Fall/Winter 08 line to show the boys how it’s really done this season, but I did find some great shots of things to come for Spring 09. If you take a look at their website, you’ll instantly notice their simple aesthetic. Clean lines, muted palette(white, sky blue and gray) and a tinge of safari inspiration. To add variety, the designers accessorized with sun hats and a very cool acorn bolo tie, which I personally hope makes an appearance on the streets next Spring/Summer.
As a Chicago fashion follower and menswear lover, I am so excited to have been introduced to this line. I can only cross my fingers that more talent of this kind comes to fruition in the Midwest.
