Creatures of Comfort catwalk show report A/W 2015 for NYFWFashion WeekAW15
Anchoring the Creatures of Comfort New York Fashion Week A/W 2015 collection is the romantic notion of the getaway: a word play alluding to high jinks, heists and holidays.
Envisioned by Creative Director Jade Lai, and staged within the opulent grandeur of an historic bank nestled in gritty Chinatown, the 37 looks comprising the collection express finely-tuned dualities: the relaxed glamour of 1970s dressing with structured tailoring of the 1940s; oversized masculine silhouettes with a feminine sensuality; playful Hawaiian prints and color blocks.
The concept of getaway expresses clothes on the verge of transformation: a navy blue cashmere dress knit with extra sleeves, belting ingeniously at the waist, has the effect amplified by a sleeve-knit scarf wrapped at the neck.
A scarlet red cashmere cape with a loose, asymmetric hem can also button-up for a fitted silhouette. An auburn tunic in felted angora suiting is a wrap-dress doubling as coat, worn over matching trousers; a kimono coat in grey check wool, knotted elegantly at the hip over trousers, can also be worn alone as a winter dress.
