The W Hotel has New Robes!


… and they’re designer! When CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund 2011 Runner Up Creatures of the Wind took up a temporary residence in the new renovated presidential suite of the W Union Square in New York, they came away inspired.

As a result, the 2012 CFDA/Vogue Award nomineesShane Gabier and Christopher Peters designed a robe that highlights the suite’s traditional design features, paired with avante-garde colors that can be worn as a layering or lounging piece.

“There were deconstructed elements to the space, which we could relate to in our own design process, Gabier told Vogue. “And we played off colors that had a interesting harmony, but also a discordance.” Like orange and pink.

Considering our own penchant for pink, we like the way those Chicagoans think. You can purchase your own robe for $250 in the hotel and online here.
