Out of all of the amazing, lookbooks I've seen from Wildfox Couture, I've never seen something based off of a story, let alone Shakespeare. I love the fact that they took this idea of "Star Crossed Lovers" from Romeo & Juliet, and put their own little modern twist to it. I'm happy they had this theme and made it fun. Sometimes being a little too serious comes off as forced, so I really love the way this came out!
Kimberley Gordon, the stylist, of the shoot, talked a lot about it on her blog!
"Fall 2012 is based on this alternate version of the Star Crossed lovers, the Capulets and Montagues; best friends who got away! A road trip through Italy, a 90’s extravaganza of Italian inspired clothing, a dream of roses and Cherubs, emerald green, gold, pink, turtlenecks, and giant, romantic plaid dresses! Would R&J have lasted over time? Or would they have realized, inevitably, that it was just a fling and their teens are meant for road trips, stories, late nights, skinny dipping, strip poker, falling in love with everyone you meet, and most importantly best friends forever, getting over breakups and learning all about what makes you happy!"
