Inspired by an impending sample sale, we decided to check in on what Imitation by Imitation of Christ has been up to this summer. The Spring 08 collection pivots on nudes and neutrals that appear in paper thin and layer-friendly fabrics. Imitation of Christ was a one-time New York cult favorite and now, their ready to wear line feels like the avant garde in them grew up and got a proper job. There's still the rebellious, disheveled, intelligent brand identity, but the clothing is perhaps a bit more accessible and, therefore, marketable.
Check out our spread of the Imitation by Imitation of Christ line below, along with the brand's Spring 08 campaign video (definitely appropriate given our lethargic weather in New York). Also, if you're in the Big Apple, check out the sample sale put on by Ethan James Group. Get your Imitation, Rhys Dwfen, Hyden Yoo, and more from 12-8pm all weekend long (201 Mulberry Street).
