Although we saw the retro-infused Wildfox Swim 2013 collection come to life on the runway during Miami Swim Week, the LA-based label's latest theatrical lookbook adds another layer to the range's appeal. Shot by party photo pioneer Mark Hunter of The Cobra Snake, "Diamond Are Forever" features a day in the life of a '60s Bond girl, portrayed by Brazilian bombshell and international supermodel Cintia Dicker.
Designed by Wildfox's Kimberley Gordon with the help of swimwear designer Leilani Shimoda, each piece is as functional as it is statement-making and comes equipped with an imaginative story. As noted on the site, their muse is "a totally American girl who lives for traveling" and "dyes her hair all shades of colors and meets beautiful men everywhere she goes." Nice life.
