WILDFOX COUTURE  //  SS13  

AS IF! Wildfox are like totally launching a SS13 collection inspired by the ultimate in 90's chick-flickery - Clueless.

Wildfox designer Kimberly Gordon gave the 411 on her phat choice of influence over on the brand's blog stating:

“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.”

Oh I hear you Kimberly. I'm sure I wasn't the only ten-year-old who demanded their parentals purchase them a plaid mini, owned a fluffy pen and/or rucksack and for whom flipping the 'W' was the way coolest comeback like ever.

A tribute to Cher, Dionne and Tai's most iconic scenes the SS13 lookbook showcases a mix of playful pastel two-pieces and cropped tops, plaid oversized shirts and mini hemlines - accessorised with over-the-knee socks, baker boy caps and chokers - natch. But being a huge fan of a slogan it's the tees and jumpers sporting the movie's most memorable lines that have me going majorly postal. I'd blates look a Betty in the 'Shopping Is My Cardio' knit don't you think?

Carefree and OTT with a don't f*ck with me attitude in my humble opinion Wildfox's SS13 collection more than does our fave coming-of-age classic justice. Hall ass over to Wildfox.com next week to shop the collection and step into the 90's - it'd be totally bogus if you missed out.

Which cult Clueless quote would YOU like to don???

  2. Is there a better movie than Clueless?! No, there is not.

    Quote-wise I'd have to go for "you're just a virgin who can't drive". Awesome.
