Back in March, we heralded the arrival of a new clothing line specifically for butch, gender non-conforming, and tomboyish ladies. Designers Emma Mcilroy and Julia Parsley quit their big, corporate jobs with Nike to follow their passion and design an entire clothing line for tomboys, and gave their new company the moniker "Wildfang," which is German for "tomboy." The brand's launch featured an eye-catching ad campaign starring Megan Rapinoe, Kate Moennig, and out Gossip drummer Hannah Blilie, who appears in the latest campaign as a convincing, sexy Tilda Swinton. 

This week, Wildfang released its newest lookbook, called the WF Icons line. 

"Tomboy isn't a trend," proclaims designer Mcilroy in the book's "about" section. "Unless you call a 500-year movement a trend. To pay homage to the badass ladies who've inspired us, this month's lookbook focuses on six of our tomboy heroes: Marlene Deitrich, Tilda Swinton, Patti Smith, Franciose Hardy, Gwen Stefani, and Diane Keaton."

Check out Blilie channeling Tilda Swinton, along with a collection of our favorite looks, below. And check out the entire line here.

"I absolutely loved getting into character," Blilie told WF. "Tilda is an incredible actor and an androgynous style icon. She's known and loved for being a modern tomboy — I had a blast taking on her persona.
