One of my all-time favorite independent designers is Dear Creatures. I own a couple of pieces, so I have firsthand experience that just makes me enjoy their designs even more. Every season is nostalgic, classic, and basically everything I want to be. The design team of Bianca and Rob were kind enough to take the time to answer a few interview questions and give me a sneak peak of their spring collection!theclotheshorse, the clothes horse, dear creatures, independent designer, retro, vintage, fashion, style, interview
Who is the Dear Creatures girl?
BIANCA: It’s for the modern girl who appreciates a simple, feminine, and polished look.
ROB: Someone who enjoys a good hunt in a vintage or thrift store and mixes her finds with new pieces in her wardrobe.
Your designs are inspired by decades past, what is your favorite decade and why?
BIANCA: Rob and I have always been inspired by different design aspects particularly from the 60’s era. People at that time were experimenting not only in fashion but music, architecture, textiles, furniture, film, and artwork. It’s all very inspiring to us.
What are your favorite films or books for inspiration?
ROB: We seem to pull inspiration from many different places. I have a thing for going to estate sales on the weekends and finding old books and magazines. One magazine I’ve been collecting for a long time is “Avant Garde” which was only in circulation for a few years, during the late 60’s and early 70’s.
BIANCA: As for films, we did one season based on The Umbrellas of Cherbourg with Catherine Denueve. Actresses with gamine looks like Jean Seberg in Breathless and Audrey Hepburn in Funny Face. And of course we love nautical inspired looks like Anna Karina in The Magus and Une Femme es Une Femme.
