Inspired by a girl who loves travelling and decadence, Wildfox Swim will be releasing their 2013 collection Diamonds Are Forever — due to hit stores this week. The collection plays tribute to 1960s Bond Girls, with a nod to the 1971 film with the same title.
At Wildfox, the ‘Bond Girl’ is enacted by Cintia Dicker. The 26-year-old Brazilian model, with her signature red hair, freckles and pout, was discovered in a shopping mall back in 2001 and now lives in New York where she shares a flat with fellow model friends. During a filmed interview with Fashion TV during Sao Paolo Fashion Week, she mentions how her job in fashion demands going to bed very late and getting up very early. However, when she finds the time, she loves going out. ‘We Brazilians, we like to dance’, she admits with glistening eyes.
Cintia’s jet set lifestyle is in line with this Wildfox Swim collection. Kimberley Gordon, designer and co-founder of Wildfox, describes the Diamonds Are Forever girl. ‘She wakes up at six in the morning to catch the sunrise and does laps in her giant, turquoise pool. She is always ready to pack her bags and fly to another country, stay in another hotel, she travels lightly, packs bikinis, sparkly dresses and beach cover ups. This girl always has her swimsuit in her purse or her glove compartment, she’s always ready for her next big adventure, and she’s always ready to make new friends… wherever she goes.’
