Our pin up Miss Ginger was inspired by the work of artist Alberto Vargas who in the 1940's began painting pin-up girls, known as 'Vargas Girls', for Esquire Magazine. Pin-ups were used as a form of aircraft graffiti and these colourful and sexy paintings were draped over the nose and sides of airplanes. Often referred to as nose-art, they were painted to inspire and motivate, whilst also bringing good luck. Miss Ginger was illustrated for the same reasons, bringing her unique nostalgic style to our #independentspirit.
