In your next life, you’d like to come back as one of the following (in no particular order):
Johnny Depp’s tattoos (except for that “Wino” mess).
The towel fluffer/folder at the gym (so toasty).
A vintage-turned-vicious design from Luxury Jones.
Portland native Niki Dimitras, mastermind of the artfully eccentric fashion label, deconstructs retro pieces into funky reincarnations. A sequined cocktail number morphs into a tattered rocker halter; out of an old-school wedding gown emerges a Lolita-esque trapeze dress.
Dimitras built Luxury Jones (a name gifted from a sometimes incarcerated rapper) on her rebellious instincts — original jersey dresses that drape beneath the coin slot; jumpsuits with pseudo bat capes; and tons of whimsical, hand-dyed knits.
Karma chameleons, rejoice.
