Girls, Guns, and Bond.
So when the photos for the 2013 campaign for Wildfox Swim came out earlier this week, it was hard to sit on them. Kimberley Gordon and Leilani Shimoda, designers behind the swimwear collection (now in its second season as part of the Wildfox family), were heavily influenced by the Bond films of the 60s, and the collection is based on the idea of a jet-setting American girl:
“The new collection is inspired by a totally American girl who lives for traveling. She dreams of England and hotel rooms, she loves flowers and diamonds, and she loves decadence! She’s a Bond Girl, a 60’s bombshell who dyes her hair all shades of colors and meets beautiful men everywhere she goes. She wakes up at six in the morning to catch the sunrise and does laps in her giant, turquoise pool. She is always ready to pack her bags and fly to another country, stay in another hotel, she travels lightly, packs bikinis, sparkly dresses and beach cover ups. This girl always has her swimsuit in her purse or her glove compartment, she’s always ready for her next big adventure, and she’s always ready to make new friends… wherever she goes.” – Kimberley Gordon
