"Luxury is a humorless thing, largely. Chic is all about humor. Which means chic is about intelligence. And there has to be oddness— most luxury is conformist, and chic cannot be. Chic must be polite, but within that it can be as weird as it wants."
Chandler Burr cites the above mentioned definition of chic in his essay Chandler Burr's Ten Favorite Fragrances ... I've always known it. Luxury is humorless and conformist. However, since oddness and weirdness is now part of the chic-equation, I'm not sure anymore if I actually need to be put to the all time chic-ness list. Hm?
