For readers old enough to remember the Multiples and Units clothing lines from the 1980s, there’s a new version on the market geared toward women on the go.

Newly launched Chick on the Go is a five-piece wardrobe in a travel kit that can be combined to create 25 different stylish outfits. The black and white garments are made of a smooth rayon and spandex blend, and, along with two sash accessories (one black, one white), fit nicely into a small carry-on clutch case that includes four pockets and a hook for hanging them easily when unfolded. The clothes are suitable for all seasons. Combined, the items weigh fewer than four pounds. There are no zippers or buttons, for added comfort and easy packing.

Incentive discovered the new line two weeks after its Feb. 14 launch at the recent New York Times Travel Show. Founder Silvia Allegrini says she came up with the idea on a 2006 trip to Italy, when her luggage was delayed and she had to spend a lot of time and money finding replacement items.

“It’s taken me five years to come up with the right designs, the right fabric, the right weight, the right bag to hold it all in,” says Allegrini, who worked in the cosmetics and fashion industries for more than 25 years before founding Chick on the Go. “Light, sleek, and chic—that’s what Chick on the Go is about. And the clothes [fit] most body types, from thin to full-figured.”

The Chick on the Go travel kit includes:

1. A black wide-leg pant
2. A black slip dress
3. A white long-sleeve shirt
4. A white tank top
5. A black poncho that can be worn as a skirt and a shirt

Each sash can be worn as a belt, scarf, or headband. The website includes an instructional video on how to combine the pieces. Click here for a Chick on the Go photostream on Flickr.

The styles created range from professional to flirty and can provide an easy transition from the office to a night on the town. Plans for future releases include additional color options and styles. Sizes come in extra small, small, medium, large, and extra large.

The Chick on the Go kit retails for $199, and Allegrini says the company can support corporate gift orders. For more information, visit
