Archived Collections / Spring 2011
\"As human necessities and purposes change, whole worlds die and new
scenes, customs, and beautiful things are born. Yet, no matter how
exciting the discoveries each generation makes for itself, it is
always painful to see the past vanish, taking parts of us with it. In
most of us there is a tendency to try to halt time, to relive the past
through the accumulation of souvenirs, to which we cling as a child
might cling to an old doll. We treasure artifacts that remind us of
people we once knew and loved, and we add to our collection of objects
of many kinds, which we identify with a past or a way of life we could
like to see perpetuated... somehow.\"
- Alexander Girard
Dear Creatures Spring 2011 Collection is inspired by everything nostalgic, playful, and lighthearted. The designers\' draw inspiration from the past work of artists they admire such as Alexendar Girard, Mary Blair, Marilyn Neuhart, and Bjorn Wiinblad.
