Epicurean vagabonds, Survival Chic founders Christophe (C) and Virginia (V) are crazy about food, wine, art, and events with an edge. After living off, working in, and traipsing across 6 continents collectively (no wineries in Antarctica), C & V know the time and effort it takes to discover the best lifestyle experiences in a city.

For 10 years, their inboxes have overflowed with requests from friends-of-friends, moving to one of the cities they have called home. These friends by association were looking for an authentic Scandinavian brunch in Buenos Aires, a funky Filipino art gallery in Singapore, or the shadiest terrace in Delhi or Paris for drinking a glass (or 3) of champagne.

C & V always took time to write back…But they found the more suggestions they gave, the more requests they got.

It seemed that smart cosmopolitans everywhere were looking for a Chic “Survival kit” — a list of insider tips — a shortcut to the city’s best food, wine, & events. And thus, in 2010 Survival Chic was born…
