London based Skinny Dip is famous for many things: eye-catching IPhone covers, sparkling accessories and beautiful clutches and bags.
But creativity, just as quality, knows no boundaries!
Skinny Dip: Pills of History
Let’s go back to year 2011, when a super young James Gold, along with his brother Richard and best friend Lewis, realized that there was a huge gap in the market: fashionable, funny, smart iPhone covers.
Since then, the brand has grown hugely, and that included being incorporated into the famous TopShop chain. Now Skinny Dip is sold worldwide also on Asos and has recently opened its first concept store in Carnaby Street, London, where everything had begun.
But that’s not only the retail network that has expanded: the brand kept experimenting, going from only accessories to any kind of product…beauty included!
In 2016, Skinny Dip brought “a capital R” revolution in the (until then) depressingly boring world of Makeup Brushes.
Skinny Dip – The Idea of a Metropolitan Brand
Let’s keep it real: this brand is just so Instagram worthy.
We’re talking about marble-pattern on highlighter brushes, holographic makeup bags, body lotion in packages that look like milk bricks and West-coast inspired shades.
Skinny Dip has made a point in doing everything with a perfectly recognizable, up-to-date, youthful aesthetic. The promise here, along with a sweet scent and a good delivery of the makeup, is that every single one of their brushes, lotions and palettes will never, ever look nothing less than amazing on an Insta post or a Pinterest board.
Although their beautiful brushes are undoubtedly a legged, Skinny Dip may not be your first thought when it comes to skincare just yet, but one thing is positive: no one can go past one of those cool packaging or cool, summer infused palettes and not look twice.
