two of my favorite talents in one shoot... DREAMY.
Our summer collection is finally here, and clothing will hit the online store first thing tomorrow morning, WILDFOX.COM and will be getting more and more product over the next 3 months! So cute and easy and so many things to throw on with your friends for a beach trip! I wanted the collection to have the feeling of reading an easy summer beach house novel, with addicting female characters staying at their beach house in the Hamptons, they are 1970’s New Yorkers that Woody Allen would have obsessed about. I also wanted to convey the true feeling of summer, what it is to me; going barefoot down the back path out onto the beach, coming back to the house after a long day in the sun with big easy T shirts and slightly sunburned skin. I love in the summer when you have all your girlfriends in the house and there are wet bikinis strewn in the shower, sunscreens and perfumes all over the sink counters, the smell of bacon at 11am… Dad singing in the kitchen, and just the freedom to do nothing, maybe a little shellfish grocery shopping at the corner market and blasting Frank Sinatra in an old family vacation home. I love in the summer when you’ve been out late with the girls and wake up together in bed, sand all over the sheets, still wearing your bathing suit with just a hoodie on over it. Summer is magic. California has almost a permanent summer and growing up here leaves you with tons of unforgettable beach memories, but what I really love is after the beach… the parents house that you laze around in and call boys for hours to arrange that nights bonfire.
My muses were absolutely Dianne Keaton circa 1970’s, and also my girlfriends in High school who are just stunning and wild… we were unstoppable in the summer.
Honestly I couldn’t sum this up with a paragraph, that’s why I was so compelled to write a short story. I hope you enjoy it!!
I love this version by Michael Buble, I know it's cheesy but it's so feel good summer to me! Play it while you read and look through the images :)

I cant tell if I hate or love this collection...
Excited to release this fun, kitschy shoot of our cruise swim line! Very 70's and 80's inspired look to go with our retro swim wear. XX
"She’s got her skates laced up tight and she’s soaring down Venice BLVD. She is
a true bombshell, igniting the super sexy, 70’s poster girl inside her. Sometimes she
misses her hometown in Brazil, the culture, the energy and bright colors, but California is the ultimate substitute. She lives for mornings at the beach, taking a run on the sand and
swimming laps against the waves. At night she’s still got her bikini and roller skates in
her purse as she heads to a dance party. With her giant sunglasses and rainbow 2-piece
she DJ’s until her fingers hurt. She is the life of the party, and everybody loves her.
When she gets home she cuddles her pet rabbit and climbs into her giant, cozy
bed covered in crochet, white blankets. She falls asleep to the sound of the ocean,
dreaming of strawberry smoothies, her summer playlist and diving into the sea. Her tiny apartment in Venice Beach is all she needs, its big windows open letting in the salty breeze, the sound of her roommates laughing, and her slightly scuffed skates, tossed off at the edge of the bed."

Something about the 70's was just so care-free. It was a decade that celebrated gimmicky entertainment, rainbow colors, Rock and Roll music, and especially bombshells. Farrah Fawcett in that red swimsuit, fanned out hair and beautiful smile, Charlie's Angels rushing to fight crime while still looking sexy in a bikini... these are the girls we wanted to portray with our resort collection, a time before photoshop, a time for really natural sex appeal. Our collection is filled with fun, bold 70's sayings and colors, and our muses are the 3 Angels… but this time on vacation. These girls are bold, smart and super stylish, they are the girls who can plan grande scenarios and dedicate themselves to pulling them off, they are the girls who can always make you laugh till it hurts, they are the ones every boy wants and every girl wants to be. We really felt the seventies this season, from Daft Punk and Flight Facilities new hits, to a movie about Liberace, and straight onto the runway, how could we not embrace this fantastic groovy lifestyle?
Rainbows and disco balls please!
