Since Jade Lai founded Creatures of Comfort in Los Angeles in May 2005, the store has been widely considered a haven for those seeking hard-to-find labels with standout personalities.
Five years later Creatures of Comfort’s eponymous private label was conceived with a lifestyle in mind: simple and stylish, ease over fuss.
For Creatures of Comfort's inaugural Resort collection, Jade Lai channeled the brand's off-kilter energy into functional pieces that maintain ease without losing their cool or sacrificing their idiosyncrasies. The silhouettes this season are influenced by the concept of carefree leisure with a focus on wardrobe “building blocks” – those pieces that are easily adaptable and can transition into different looks day-to-day.
Shapes include elongated blazers over cropped pants, color-blocked knit tunics layered over flare-legged knit trousers and structural column dresses. The fabrics in the collection range from crisp red linen-blend canvas to feminine blue feather print cotton organza to muted Japanese fine gauge slub mélange wool. Denim is also explored for the first time through the use of raw natural-toned American denim and textured windowpane quilted Japanese denim. Cut in less traditional shapes, Creatures of Comfort’s versions appear in voluminous silhouettes featuring raw edges that evoke an uninhibited, adventurous spirit. For accessories, Creatures of Comfort introduces the equestrian-inspired Saddle Bag and Saddle Tote, and the Francis slipper: a minimal cut-out flat mule inspired by the brand’s best-selling Fred flat.
