The WF Icons Lookbook
By Emma McIlroy
TOMBOY ISN’T A TREND. UNLESS YOU CALL A 500-YEAR MOVEMENT A TREND. TO PAY HOMAGE TO THE BADASS LADIES WHO’VE INSPIRED US, THIS MONTH’S LOOKBOOK FOCUSES ON SIX OF OUR TOMBOY HEROES: MARLENE DIETRICH, TILDA SWINTON, PATTI SMITH, FRANCOISE HARDY, GWEN STEFANI, AND DIANE KEATON.
“These are the ladies who inspired us to create Wildfang. They’re the strong, confident, independent women who we grew up wanting to be,” says Taralyn Thuot, Wildfang’s Creative Director.
Hannah takes on Tilda
Each personna was brought to life through Liam Gillies’ masterful photography and cheeky sketches by our favorite artist, Matt Jones.
And to top things off, we had a guest appearance by the immensely talented Hannah Blilie, drummer from Gossip. When Hannah isn’t bashing out rock masterpieces on her drums, she’s striking all kinds of poses for Wildfang. This time we really threw down the gauntlet, and asked her to take on tomboy heavyweight Tilda Swinton. Hannah picked up that gauntlet and ran with it.
“I absolutely loved getting into character. Tilda is an incredible actor and an androgynous style icon. She’s known and loved for being a modern tomboy – I had a blast taking on her persona,” said Hannah.
Feast your eyes on our Wildfang Icons LookBook.
