One of the best parts of blogging by far is being introduced to new brands through the means of copious cocktails and cupcakes and Skinnydip London sure know how to throw a damn good launch party! The venue itself got an A+ from me (The dorky Architecture nerd in me is making a reappearance it seems..) white walls and floors with black accents, pure minimalistic perfection.
The founders of Skinnydip and their kickass PR Vanessa were so friendly and welcoming and explained how the company, established in 2010 started. The pictures are pretty self explanatory so i'll leave the verbal drooling over the embellished cases and bags to a minimum. But as a 'Bling Magpie' i'll say this, i had yet to see embellished cases that don't look cheap or tacky, but Skinnydip really make this work. The cases and covers have that beautiful opulence about them reminiscent of the Dolce & Gabbana A/W 13 Collection mixed with a bit of Meadham Kirchhoff's kitsch and colourful designs, minus the heart attack inducing price tags.I was very kindly given one of their "Emerald Cases" from their A/W line exclusively stocked at River Island and soon to be stocked in TOPSHOP! I'll be debuting the case at Fashion Week because it's too pretty for every day use and i'm terrified i'll drop my phone and damage it being the clutz I am! As soon as the Red Fluffy case is on the site i'm making it mine!
Thank you to Skinnydip London for an awesome night!
