Chic Cityrats was founded by Samuel Dambert and Anne-Sophie Guiguet, two journalists with years of experience writing for beautiful glossies, independent or not (BAG, Sofa, Dealer de Luxe, Upstreet, L'Officiel, Soon...). They are today in charge of the Exhibitions pages for one of the leading Parisian fashion magazines.
Chic Cityrats is an online magazine dedicated to lifestyle. Updated daily, it gathers the beautiful things, from Paris and abroad. Those everyone will talk about and those few will get to see.
Put up online in its beta version in April 2007, the magazine is launched with its definitive content sections and visual identity in May 2008. The website's design was entrusted to Studio B2.
Episodes: the season's trends, interpreted by us through 20 items each month
Fresh: novelties, exclusivities, premieres... the most exciting news
Art: an international exhibitions agenda, glamorous, graphic, rare
Places: new stores, confidential addresses, thematic tours... a guide of the coolest places to be
Magazine: red-hot features, revealing portraits, interviews and off-the-record confessions
Chic Cityrats claims a preference for luxury and the high-end. Being a beautiful thing, however, is not enough to feature on the website - nor does it suffice to be branded with a household name, and even less to bear a label with a high price. It's the supplement of soul within certain things, the stories they contain, which enable them to appear here.
Before any other binding, Chic Cityrats honors the call of style. We go above and beyond it.
