Dear Creatures' Fall 2012 campaign is all sorts of classic and cute, with its whimsical cat-centric photos by Yudi Ela. Their clothes are flattering to the figure and modern, yet with a retro sensibility that I appreciate -- not to mention that the styling is impeccable (and how cute is that little cat hat?).
Designers Bianca Benitez and Rob Sinclair explained to GenArt the inspiration behind the collection and their favorite pieces:
Tell me about the inspiration behind your Fall '12 collection:
Bianca: This may sound cheesy, but we found a stray kitten in our office parking lot that we adopted and he's sort of become our little mascot. So you'll see some cat inspired pieces in the line and he makes a cameo in the Fall 2012 look book.
Do either of you have a favorite piece in this new collection?
Bianca: I love the "Shirley Dress" which is a striped shift sweater dress.
Rob: I like the jaquarded "Cat Face" sweater.
