Chip Chop! is the whimsical brand of designer Hannah Chipkin. Making her foray into the Australian market in 2006 with cute, French-inspired canvas totes and denim bags, Chipkin is extending her reach to include homewares and lifestyle products. “It’s all about meaningful nonsense,” she says laughingly. Her brand conjures images of plein air painters on the banks of the Seine, berets and breadsticks. It’s clever, cute and chic all at once.

To celebrate the label’s French origins, Chip Chop! is holding a Bastille Day giveaway. Post your favourite French expression on Chip Chop!’s Facebook wall to go into the running to win one of their French Words cushions.

Get into the Chip Chop! spirit and dig up those old French textbooks from school.

Bonne chance!
