Seems like Billabong has been surfing the blogosphere for inspiration. Billabong’s Design Director Mandy Robinson has been obsessing over Oracle Fox,? especially since her trip to Australia. Amanda Shadforth, the blogger behind? Oracle Fox, grew up surfboard under foot, friends at the ready, even now, to chill on Sydney’s beaches. Her blog fuses that super chill lifestyle with her sleek style interpretation through editorials, icons, designer interviews and the likes on a plate of positive brights. Thus the Billabong team approached Oracle Fox to collaborate on a Spring/Summer 2012 collection.?
The 17-piece collection is “more Australian than ever” with a black and white geo-tribal print surfacing on the bikini, short shorts and mini dress, and lace up shorts with rock’n'roll vibes. An all lace bell sleeve dress hits the middle ground of surfer and style star – always ready for the swimsuit underneath. Organic tri-blend shirts flow cropped with a reckless message, A.K.A. to live with the same fabulous reckless abandon as Oracle Fox.
The collection is on sale now at Billabong.com.
