Raw Earth Wild Sky’s Holiday/Winter 2010 "Undercover" collection is inspired by the strong, fearless women from WWII. Each piece takes an alias of a former female spy.

But who are these ladies? Says Raw Earth Wild Sky Designer Samantha Robinson, “Some were celebrities, others lived lives of secrecy in other countries under assumed names with different identities. All of them risked their lives for their countries and believed in freedom. These women were alluring yet mysterious hence our name 'Undercover'.”
