‘Hello Sailor’ | Valerie Van Der Graaf By Kimberley Gordon For Wildfox | Summer 2013
by Kate van raden
“Designer Kimberly Gordon drew inspiration from 1950’s culture for the collection stating, “I’ve always been a big fan of pin-up art, it’s so extremely American and the history behind the pin-up girl is so interesting. I grew up collecting cheesecake books, I starred as Sandy in the school production of Grease, I listened to Elvis constantly and memorized every oldie I could get my hands on.”
Summer 2013 is all about making girls feel beautiful! U.S.A.-inspired tees and sweaters with fun Americana graphics such as a sequin “U.S.A.” across a tight knit White Label sweater, “I Want You” on our signature Cassidy Tank, and an intarsia knit “Red Cross” on an oversized cardigan. Our endlessly comfortable baggy beach jumpers and gypsy hoodies are adorned with milkshakes, French poodles, and cherries, taking our Wildfox girls right back to a 50’s malt shop!”
