Hanalei Reponty makes a Splash for Wildfox White Label

White label is all about girls who belong in the ocean!

Of course it was the natural thing to cast Hanalei because she is a real life* mermaid and pro surfer!! with an uncanny resemblance to Darryl Hannah, she is almost a real life Madison from the film "Splash" It seems like all girls were obsessed with that movie, the long, crimped blonde hair, a beautiful woman eating lobster with her hands, the ability to memorize languages in just seconds…who wouldn't want to believe in mermaids??

Since we can't breathe under water, surfing and swimming is as close as it gets, so we celebrate the surfer girl in a magical way...a pastel pretty, feminine mermaid way.

The Spring collection really conjures up girls of the sea, and Hanalei  is the ultimate sea baby. Enjoy!

The Wildfox Lagoon.

Well it's finally time, our Wildfox Spring 2014 collection hits stores this week! I don't think Ive ever worked harder on a look book than this one, but it was all so amazingly fun. I hope it transports you to our deserted Lagoon and helps you picture yourself swimming in clear oceans come your next vacation!

Starring 3 of my favorite muses, Emma Stern Nielson, Svea Kloosterhoff and Mathilde Brandi, 3 dreamy young girls arrived with their Tevas and backpacks to be shot by my lovely close friend Mark Hunter... and with the help of our wonderful makeup artist Carlene K and amazing hair stylist Anna Lee Fiorino, we transformed them into island mermaids with salty hair and luxurious tans. I hope you guys love it!!

"If you were stranded on a desert island and could only bring one thing, what would it be?

It's a question that arises often, especially in film! From the gimmicky Gilligan's Island, the sexy Blue Lagoon, the perfect Leo Dicaprio in The Beach, the amazing award winning Castaway, the terrifyingly mysterious series, Lost,  and the classic Lord of the Flies, we are constantly entertained by and questioning the idea of being stranded on a remote island. Sometimes, sitting at my desk on an extremely busy day at work, I even wish for it.

What would Wildfox look like stranded on an island, we wondered? Well it's pretty obvious… extremely sexy (with serious laugh out loud moments.)

The Wildfox girl is the ultimate beach girl, she's crafty, she's smart, she's wild and out going, and she's totally ready for an adventure! This is why the Wildfox Lagoon is our best season yet, it epitomizes everything Wildfox! This story is of 3 friends who love to watch the sunrise, eat coconuts, run down the beach naked, build huge bonfires, catch fish and cook 'em too, decorate their homes and hair with flowers, go barefoot everywhere, hike mountains to see the views, and sleep peacefully in the whipping night wind (bamboo doors wide open.)

So if we could take one thing on our island? Our Friends."
