Wildfox is known for its whimsical retro vibes, while Coca-Cola’s nostalgia-inducing ads have the power to charm parched sugar lovers. Clearly a match made in heaven, the vintage-inspired LA label and the classic beverage brand have teamed for a clothing collection, reports WWD.

Set to drop Tuesday, October 20th, the 14-piece line toasts the 100th anniversary of Coke’s iconic glass bottle. It’s priced from $58 to $128 and includes Wildfox’s signature beach-ready silhouettes, like breezy tanks, hoodies, rompers, and terry sweaters. Take a peek at what to expect above; the range will be shoppable online and in Wildfox’s dreamy West Hollywood and Malibu outposts starting next week.

“Hi guys! Giza here with the latest in NYFW style and trends. I’ve been scoping out the scene in Manhattan for the past week. Obviously, all of the S/S’ 15 styles are stunning, but I’ve spotted a few trends on the street that are sure to be pretty major this upcoming season. I’ve got all of the details for you in this week’s NYFW Recap:

 

Crazy prints

Designers weren’t holding back this season in the print department. Crazy prints, vibrant colors… Um hello, seventies. We’ve missed you. I’m not talking a hint of a print here and there. No. Full on head-to-toe psychedelic floral. I’m obsessed.

Fringe

Are you going through Coachella withdrawal? Don’t worry. April will be here before you know it. In the meantime, designers are giving you your fringe fix by way of awesome denim and leather jackets and suede bags. Fringe represents freedom and carelessness and passion. It’s no wonder we can’t seem to get enough these days.

Fishnet skirts

Gone are the days where fishnet only thrived through the cheeky little tights you wore with your favorite little minis. Fishnets are back in a new way this season. Say hello to the fishnet skirt. Designers are considerate of the sexy reputation that fishnets have attained over the year. Try pairing yours with a classy little button up top, sandals, and a topknot for an effortlessly chic look.

Midriff

The midriff trend is still going strong. I don’t think we’ll be mourning the death of crop tops any time soon. NYFW was littered with both models and the fashion-inclined alike baring their summer bods by way of tiny tops and bold bralettes. For SS ’15, swap your high-wasted shorts and skirts for classic mid-rise denim.

Beiges

Amidst all of the drama and eccentricities of fashion week, we can all find comfort in the fact that beige is still totally in. Not up for flashy prints and daring colors. It’s fine. Beige is still a safe space for you to comfortably channel your inner fashion savant. Timeless trench coats and sleek skirts are only a few of the ways that you can bring beige back in your spring and summer wardrobes. Just kidding about the whole “back” bit. Beige never truly went anywhere to begin with.

 

This NYFW was complete madness, I was running all over the place. Different parties, events, shows, and presentations. I am excited to share with you some of the experience!”
