Launched a decade ago by style icon Tara Subkoff, Imitation (then known as Imitation of Christ) began as a concept line created from secondhand and vintage gems. Championed by the all of the coolest kids in fashion, the line has evolved into something that’s a bit more minimalist—although it’s far from boring. Think streamlined trenches, double-breasted shifts, silver crop tops and floor-length capes.
Aside from its ultra-feminine appeal, the beauty of the everyday dress lies in its throw-on-and-go ease. From pretty, printed frocks to neutral dresses perfect for the office — by Tart, Tocca, and others — these stunners require little more than tights, a chic pair of heels, and a cool fall jacket to make you look perfectly put together.
You may have known this line under its former name, Imitation of Christ, but its latest iteration, from visionary designer Tara Subkoff, is just as hip. Based on a delicate color palette of ivory, gray, blush, and sheer black, the label's comfy-hip clothes adhere to a minimalist aesthetic, meaning flowing tunics, curve-hugging minis, and floor-length dresses that could double as nightgowns. And remember: muted never means boring at Imitation — just ask Chloe Sevigny, who wears the label with pride.
