Wildfang launched in March 2013, setting out to liberate menswear one bowtie at a time. Because tomboy isn't a trend and badass never goes out of style. The tomboy has always been with us and always will be - from Patti Smith to Blondie, Audrey Hepburn to Lauren Hutton.
Wildfang's 'Icons Lookbook' focuses on six of our favorite tomboy heroes: Marlene Dietrich, Tilda Swinton, Patti Smith, Francoise Hardy, Gwen Stefani, and Diane Keaton. Each of these tomboys has been brought to life through stunning photography and stand-out pieces from Wildfang's summer collection (available for sale at www.wildfang.com). The Icons Lookbook showcases the talents of Hannah Blilie (drummer from Gossip), in order to bring to life one of our modern heroes: Tilda Swinton.
"I absolutely loved getting into character. Tilda is an incredible actor and an androgynous style icon. She's known and loved for being a modern tomboy - I had a blast taking on her persona," said Hannah Blilie.
Wildfang's 'Icons Lookbook' launches on May 15th @ www.wildfang.com. Wildfang retails menswear inspired pieces to women across the globe. They're based in Portland, Oregon and comprised of 10+ part-timers, full-timers and double-timers, who eat, sleep and breathe tomboy fashion and culture.
