    Coming within the next two weeks is our summer collection of pin up inspired clothing!! We had so much fun designing this and shooting it. It stars our muse, the brilliant model Valerie Van Der Graaf, who is the ultimate pin-up girl, and is shot by me. I hope you guys enjoy it and are inspired to read the history of the pin up girl, maybe even order a copy of the book I linked here! Can you see which pin up images and artists inspired these shots? XX Model: Valerie Van Der Graaf Photographer: Kimberley Gordon STyling: Kimberley Gordon, Meredith Leyerzaph, Emily Siegel Make up: Carlene K Hair: Tyron Dupre (Check out our gorgeous, new swimwear in here also! Exciting!) ] One of the most iconic images that exude confidence and femininity is none other than the 1950s pin-up girl. The vintage artwork is still used to showcase beautiful women of all shapes and sizes, which embodies the same cheeky and outgoing personality of a Wildfox girl. Wildfox is proud to present our Summer 2013 collection, “Hello Sailor!” Designer Kimberly Gordon drew inspiration from 1950’s culture for the collection stating, “I’ve always been a big fan of pin-up art, it’s so extremely American and the history behind the pin-up girl is so interesting. I grew up collecting cheesecake books, I starred as Sandy in the school production of Grease, I listened to Elvis constantly and memorized every oldie I could get my hands on.” Summer 2013 is all about making girls feel beautiful! U.S.A.-inspired tees and sweaters with fun Americana graphics such as a sequin “U.S.A.” across a tight knit White Label sweater, “I Want You” on our signature Cassidy Tank, and an intarsia knit “Red Cross” on an oversized cardigan. Our endlessly comfortable baggy beach jumpers and gypsy hoodies are adorned with milkshakes, French poodles, and cherries, taking our Wildfox girls right back to a 50’s malt shop! Women posing for pin up paintings Check out this great book all about the pinup girl, here is a little info: "Subverting stereotypical images of women, a new generation of feminist artists is remaking the pin-up, much as Annie Sprinkle, Cindy Sherman, and others did in the 1970s and 1980s. As shocking as contemporary feminist pin-ups are intended to be, perhaps more surprising is that the pin-up has been appropriated by women for their own empowerment since its inception more than a century ago. Pin-Up Grrrls tells the history of the pin-up from its birth, revealing how its development is intimately connected to the history of feminism. Maria Elena Buszek documents the genre’s 150-year history with more than 100 illustrations, many never before published. Beginning with the pin-up’s origins in mid-nineteenth-century carte-de-visite photographs of burlesque performers, Buszek explores how female sex symbols, including Adah Isaacs Menken and Lydia Thompson, fought to exert control over their own images. Buszek analyzes the evolution of the pin-up through the advent of the New Woman, the suffrage movement, fanzine photographs of early film stars, the Varga Girl illustrations that appeared in Esquire during World War II, the early years of Playboy magazine, and the recent revival of the genre in appropriations by third-wave feminist artists. A fascinating combination of art history and cultural history, Pin-Up Grrrls is the story of how women have publicly defined and represented their sexuality since the 1860s."

  • New York - Autumn in the City — Today was an... | NY Through the Lens - New York City Photography
    More info
    New York - Autumn in the City — Today was an absolutely perfect autumn day in New York City. The air was crisp, and the sun exuded a cool warmth. This time of year always makes me incredibly nostalgic. It was the autumn of 2009 that I found my passion for photography. I would walk as far as my legs would take me with my little point and shoot camera which was severely limited in its capacity. I was too poor for a smartphone at the time and remember hoping that the no-frills point and shoot that I bought on sale for $79 could help me capture the city I love in photographs. I went through quite a few of those early photos today for a client who found one of the photos on my Flickr account and requested it for an upcoming ad campaign. I keep all of my work on my Flickr account, even the early work. It’s amazing how far some of those early photos have gone in terms of usage. Not all of my early work is what I would consider good. In fact, most of my early work is fairly rough in terms of execution of what I was attempting to do with the limited tools I had at the time. However, I keep them online because I believe it’s important to keep a record of where we have been in life. It helps to put everything in perspective. Most importantly, it helps to track growth and learning. I wanted to share a few of my photos from that magical autumn of 2009. I can still feel every aspect of each moment I captured with my camera when I look at these… The way the leaves gathered at the curb… Early Halloween decorations… Quiet moments where the past and present co-mingled… Horses and Central Park’s autumn foliage… As holiday scenes tugged at the heart… And glowing orange lights warmed up chilly afternoons.. Central Park’s landscapes in their last hurrah before winter… As the first intrepid ice-skaters took to the ice… While the Upper East Side’s architecture framed a perfect hint of orange… As townhouses… And grand architecture uptown stoically waited to hibernate… Brooklyn reveled in Autumn’s warmth… Modern love enjoyed a moment in an abandoned East Village lot… And New York City passionately declared its love for autumn. — Looking for these photos to view larger?
