There are very few designers at New York Fashion Week who show pieces that are both inspirational and attainable, but Creatures of Comfort managed to achieve just that.
This season, designer Jade Lai was inspired by the movie "Clue" after hearing her friend's idea to throw a murder mystery-themed party. The color palette used featured lots of rich navy, hunter greens and, of course, plaids galore. To compliment the androgynous looks, the models sported windblown, low ponytails and clip-on bangs, courtesy of Hairstory. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics handled the barely-there makeup application. The focus was on an inverse ombre lip, which was created by pressing Vintage Lip Tar in Black Dahlia into the center of the models' lips.
Though there were many outfits from the collection that we'd love to run out and buy, the one that stood out most was the first look of the show. The oversized blue cocoon coat, paired with a fitted black turtleneck dress, was the perfect juxtaposition of masculine and feminine. We were also pleased to see that flat shoes are still big in the fashion world (these sling-backs were a collab between Creatures of Comfort and LD Tuttle). The ensemble was finished off with an impossibly cool tassel hat and a pair of Illesteva sunglasses.
We were so impressed with Lai's latest collection, we don't need to see anymore Fall 2014 shows, we'll just take everything from this one!
We have a feeling that next season's street style will feature a lot more oversized coats:
