The final night of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Swim featured a lively runway show by LA's own Wildfox Swim. As expected, the front row was filled with tons of cool kids, including Minimale Animale's Cassandra Kellogg. One Scott Disick, who we spotted at the label's poolside preview the day prior, sat next to his friend Wildfox CEO Jimmy Sommers and got consistently swarmed by fans.
On to the show: Instead of oddly pairing fun-loving swimwear with stone-faced models, we dig that the sublabel's designer Kimberley Gordon (one half of the Wildfox Couture duo) employed a gang of genetically-blessed free spirits who seemed to live and breath the Wildfox lifestyle. Girls in colorful wigs waved and danced down the runway as they channeled a variety of '60s-inspired looks, from an Austin Powers-like fembot in a Union Jack one-piece and go-go boots to a French starlet in a floral high-waisted bikini and breezy cream robe. Peruse the slideshow for more standouts.
