Chictopia Everybody is Ugly - apr 10 2009

Trendy Style, best suited for a Art Opening

Apr 10, 2009

We here at Chictopia receive tons of press releases from brands, and we put them through a few filters before we parse on the info to you. #1 Do they use the words, “hottest” to describe their outfits? #2 Do they use comic sans in the email body? #3 Do they misspell our site as “Chicktopia”? (a;sdkfj;laskjfklds) #4 Do they boast about how “Heidi Montag”, “Paris Hilton” and “Bai Ling” are fans? Next, please.

But there is one trump card: if I would wear their clothes to grab lunch with Carine Roitfeld, then all the rules go out the window. So despite label e.g.’s proclamation that they’re “the UK’s hottest new fashion label for the empowered woman” (oy), I’d wear every last sharp shouldered, drapey, dramatic piece to lunch with Carine, dinner with Karl and hell—even breakfast with Christian Audigier.

The brains between the Grace Jones inspired collection is Emma Griffiths whose time with Boudicca and Alexander McQueen have infused her own collection with the kind of body-con structure and powerful tailoring that make me want to go all Amazon-princess and cut my hair off. Peep their lookbookhere, or shop their wares on their online store.
