"Turn your back to the forest, your front to me."
CDLM is Chris Peters' first solo project outside of the CFDA Award-winning label Creatures of the Wind (the brand that he and his life-business partner, Shane Gabier.) To commemorate this exciting event, the designer brought in close friends like actress Tavi Gevinson and artist-cum-poet John Giorno. Sporting neutral hues belted oversized coats and tasseled knee-high cowboy boots, Chris Peters' models brought the wild outdoors into the Peter Freeman Gallery in Soho. CDLM ("Cueva de las Manos") was named after an Argentinian cave painting that the designer has admired for a while now—a painting, according to him, that is both deeply human yet in one with nature. Adopting a unisex utilitarian-meets-punk streak, every piece in this collection features quality fabrics and tailoring.
CDLM Season 1 will be available at Dover Street Market this October.
