Steal KStew’s Tomboy Style With Wildfang
Meet the Portland brand loved by Kristen Stewart, Ellen Page and Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry…
Want to steal Kristen Stewart’s boyish style, but don’t quite have her Chanel budget? Then you need a little Wildfang in your life. Translating from German as ‘tomboy’ – though it can also mean the equally wonderful ‘wild child,’ ‘rascal,’ or ‘animal caught in the wild’ – Wildfang is fast becoming the go-to style site for celebrity ladies who want to steal their male counterparts’ style without sacrificing on feminine fit.
The brainchild of Emma McIlroy and Julia Parsley, two friends who met whilst working for Nike in Portland, Oregon, the girls describe themselves as “modern-day female Robin Hoods, raiding men’s closets and dispensing the styles we love through a single destination”. Stocking brands like Cheap Monday, James Jeans, Comune and AMBSN, Wildfang have hunted down the hottest androgynous pieces and collated them in one place, for girls who love to borrow the best bits of boys’ wardrobes. Don’t we all?
Joined by creative director Taralyn Thuout, formerly concept director of womenswear at Nike, the trio have just launched an exclusive new line of snazzy printed shirts in collaboration with fellow tomboy brand Peau de Loup. Available online now at Wildfang.com[wildfang.com], with flat-rate UK shipping for $30 no matter how much you buy, we reckon it’ll only be a matter of time before famous fans Ellen Page and Chvrches’ Lauren Mayberry are snapped wearing them.
