Wildfox Spring 2015 collection is all free, spiritual and bold. Upon chancing these pictures on Kimberley's blog, I also read through some of her reasons behind creating the gypsy theme. Wildfox lookbooks have always been a muse to me but this one's got to be one of my favourites outdoors, integrating nature, peace and Catherine Macfee's wonderful space designs


What is the inspiration of this new collection? 

This past year was quite a turbulent one for me, and it seems maybe for the world also! I think I had this overall feeling of wanting to escape and live off the land, I visualized a group of girls with a whole lot of passion and fearlessness and absolutely nothing to lose. They would beg, borrow, steal their way through countries, hypnotizing boys and working odd jobs to make a little money. Their lives were only for each other and themselves, there was a freedom in the collection, a way for me to feel it along with them even though I worked harder than ever to bring it to life!

Who are your ideal muses for this collection (from any era)?

When I was 23 I would go to tons of festivals, really hippy ones, and I made these fleeting friendships that were fast but have been so important to me in my lifetime. These girls were so free, one was a nudist and she had beautiful long blonde hair and we did lots of body painting on people together, one was this fantastic artist who wore just thrown together scraps of printed clothing she'd collected along her life path, she had natural dreadlocks that formed under her hair and she wore them in a bun. Another was an Indian belly dancer at Burning Man, a dancer by night but an engineer by day… she was bold and beautiful without a touch of makeup, but she wore great coal liner when she danced, two opposite identities at peace with each other. 

What made you identify with and/or choose this concept? 

There is something so carefree about your early 20s, and I just missed this feeling of electricity, about being able to run off at the last minute, quit your job and not look back… or just take a risk with something big, your 30's you carry evidence of your 20s… like beautiful, luxurious baggage, I love my baggage and I wanted to give a nod to it with this collection.

Anyone excited about the weekend? It's been so sunny and hot this week in Melbourne and I'm 110% looking forward to Australia Day (it's also my dad's birthday). Tomorrow we are planning to go fishing in Venus Bay and on Monday, a massive bbq party at our place. Hopefully I'll get some good snaps and post up an update for you all lovelies in the coming week or so. Say cheers to another week xx

Bisous ♥
