Angels off Duty, WILDFOX, Resort 13-14

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!

The Kids In America, SS 13 Wildfox

In 1995, girl world changed forever when we were introduced to three strong-willed, perfectly
dressed Beverly Hills babes named Cher, Tai, and Dionne. Amy Heckerling, the mastermind behind
the cultural phenomenon, said it best through her leading lady Cher Horowitz, “So okay, I don't
want to be a traitor to my generation and all but I don't get how guys dress today. I mean, come
on, it looks like they just fell out of bed and put on some baggy pants and take their greasy hair -
ew - and cover it up with a backwards cap and like, we're expected to swoon?" AS IF! Everything
about the “Clueless” world captured a generation of girls who wanted it all, and who were going
to look great getting it. Amy Heckerling created a bold new take on the modern girl amidst the
sea of grunge that filled the 90’s. Wildfox’s Spring 2013 collection pays tribute to Heckerling,
capturing the spirit of “Clueless” and their iconic leading ladies. We’re the Kids In America!

The collection tells the story of the girly dreamer in all of us. Wildfox strives to make girls feel good in
what they are wearing, for nights you will remember forever and the days you wish would never
end. Designer Kimberly Gordon describes, “I have always wanted to express something creatively
that is more than just fashion, it’s a feeling, a lifestyle, it’s about being a girl. It’s capturing a
moment. I think I felt it first when I was about 12 around when Clueless came out and I was so in
love with the characters, I didn’t just love the clothes, I loved the girls who wore the clothes – which
made me want to wear them even more.”

The Clueless Collection is all about tees that start conversations, sweaters you can wear all day,
sleep in and wear again the next day. They’re for throwing on so that you can run out the door
and feel beautiful for just about any occasion.

Classic Clueless phrases such as ‘As If,’ ‘Totally Bogus,’ and ‘I’d Rather Be Shopping’ bring the
collection to life in a sassy yet playful manner. Fun, girly graphics like sunflowers, ice cream cones
and watermelon slices on soft cotton and tissue jersey fabrics reflect the same carefree excitement
the spring season brings. The line is reminiscent of Clueless and 90’s Bel Air babes with bright, girly
colors with names like ‘Mall’ and ‘Chill Pill’. New styles include The Festival Tank, Grunge Girl Dress
and 90’s Valley Girl Maxi Dress. The Grunge Festival set features a 100% Modal Rose Print offered on
a variety of styles with bold graphics and 90’s sayings like ‘Love Fool’.

 

 

“When Amy wrote Clueless, the current fashion was grunge. Her vision for the film was to show the rich, upscale high school girls of Beverly Hills. The costumes were to be like characters in the film. Grunge was dark and sad so the color palette was very important to Amy. The clothes needed to be very bright and fun. I wanted the girls to be girls again, with over-the-knee stockings and Mary Jane shoes. We wanted to change the current look that was on the street and show teens how to have fun with clothes.”

"It was the closest I've ever come to something being in my head and being on the screen," says the "Fast Times at Ridgemont High" creator, now in her early 50s. "It was exactly the way I wanted it."

Pope explains the all-ages appeal as, "We never thought of this as a teenage movie."

Heckerling, who makes a hobby of studying slang, says cracking the DNA code of teen linguistics was no big whoop: "A lot of words that come from teenagers are about throwing up."

Fashion designer Mona May recalls the "Clueless" outfits as "not really what the kids were wearing" in the drab era of Nirvana -- "it was a hyper-look." Of Silverstone -- hired after she turned heads as Aerosmith's rock-video Betty -- May says: "I couldn't have dreamed of a better little Barbie doll to dress."

Heckerling says Silverstone "was so cute ... on the verge of womanhood but she's also got such a little girl quality. It's that thing that famous women sex symbols have where women like them also." Pope graciously says "Clueless" "really is Alicia's movie."

The project started life as a TV pitch called "No Worries." (Like "Ridgemont," it eventually spun off a series.) The many "Emma" parallels were added as the series concept morphed into a film script. But, "Unconsciously, I'd been writing an Emma-like character" from the beginning, says Heckerling.

The writer-director found her script "hard for people to understand" since it lacked the usual teenage-wasteland raunch. At Fox, "the men didn't get it." Producer Scott Rudin did, and Paramount won the ensuing budding war. "Clueless" overcame its chick-flick veneer via enthusiastic reviews and word of mouth, and went on to gross $57 million in theaters.

We all wish we were part of a fairy tale, some magical creature in some great love story.
A little mermaid with pearls in her long pink hair gliding through the warm salty water, in love with some beautiful sailor who she sees on a ship, handsome brown eyes and a different world. Our lives are more similar to fairy tales than we think, and everywhere around us there is magic. White sand that glitters in the sun and gets stuck like diamonds to your skin, sugarcane fields under the clouds that taste sweet in the rain, running barefoot on the hot pavement to meet a boy in town, long days of summer where the moon comes out along with the sun.

Wildfox Summer collection is to be pulled on over a bikini, drying off from the water on a tropical island, sunkissed shoulders and smelling of sunscreen & coconut oil. It is for little mermaids everywhere who belive in their own fairy tale coming true.
