Creatures of the Wind and J.Crew’s Capsule Cutie!
Sometimes a mini is indeed a maxi! Like the recent capsule mini-collection from J.Crew and Creatures of the Wind.
To all the COTW and J.Crew fans that have been pining for the release of this one. It’s here. And it was worth the wait. The collection — which is the third (and last) installment of 2012′s CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund capsule series — is comprised of a scant four pieces with which to mix and match with the rest of your summer finds, all inspired by the psychedelic youth culture of the 60′s. Think one mad-capped pair of glittery oxford shoes ($295), a floral print and chambray zip up dress ($350), and a bold striped tee ($195) and matching cashmere cardigan ($295) set.
The designers had this to say about the mini-capsule, “We wanted to design pieces that were totally functional but could add an interesting element to anyone’s wardrobe,” which, it seems, the duo pulled off. You can snap the collection up online at jcrew.com or head to your nearest airport and jet on over to J.Crew’s NYC flagship 5th Avenue store.
