We always get a little giddy when a new Wildfox Couture lookbook pops up. The West Coast knitwear brand's designers, Emily Faulstich and Kimberley Gordon, never cease to enchant us with their unique vision every season, which is always accompanied by a breathtaking series of nostalgic imagery.
For spring 2012, Wildfox salutes American old west films and the Tom Robbins gothic romance novel, Even Cowgirls Get the Blues, by forming a modern-day band of lonely cowgirls looking for fun. Models sport the label's signature vintage-inspired tees, which are colored in pastels and notes of neon, as well as embellished with western graphics and familiar sayings.
