Wildfox Coutures’ new collection; La Dolce Vita has arrived.
New Wildfox range pays homage to Italy with their fun take on “Italian Fashion”
Inspired by the idea of escaping winter for a vacation along Italy’s Amalfi coast.
Kimberley Gordon has said the inspiration for the new Fall 2015 collection, ‘La Dolce Vita’, has been inspired by the idea of escaping winter for a holiday, in Italy to spend long, leisurely days painting and exploring the sights, swimming in the sea, and riding Vespas along the breathtaking Amalfi coast. She says, “I kept feeling like I didn’t want summer to end. I’d been looking through Slim Aarons’ “La Dolce Vita” and I wanted to slip inside the book and onto the lounge chairs. When you start designing for fall, it’s fun because you can play with knits and jackets, but I find it hard to have to get so dark and cold with colours! I thought about where you could be that fall could feel like a continuation of summer…a permanent vacation.”
The new Wildfox range consists of their signature soft lightweight knits, sweaters, intimates, and denim, which we think perfectly captures the air of Italy (and we visited Italy in April) while staying true to the Wildfox aesthetic. The collection pays homage to a Italy, which is world famous for its art, architecture, culture, and cuisine and wine! Wildfox has stuck their unique stamp on Italy, with this collection, featuring allover pizza prints, and classic phrases: “Kiss Me I’m Italian” and “Italians Do It Better”, and Italian sayings such as “Voglio un “buongiorno” Un bacio e un Caffè”
