I am waiting for the day when Monki will arrive in NYC, the only time I get to shop the store is when I’m visiting Hong Kong. Love that Monki is affordable and on-trend, they have always looked to the streets for inspirations. For the Autumn/Winter 2014 collection entitled Urban by Design, a two-part drop inspired by and created for urban life and the girls who live it. Monki finds inspiration from London featuring a fusion of urban luxe and casual cool pieces with key elements like textured fabrics, new silhouettes, matching separates, and as ever, original Monki prints.
Part I of the collection is a haze of vibrant colors, opulent prints and rich textures, inspired by the multi-cultural population of the city. While Part II with its muted palette, clean lines and traditional, wool-like textures reflect the city’s architecture.
“Part I is for the intuitive dresser. The girl who feels the pulse of the city: someone that loves making daring fashion choices. Part II is for the young professional. She loves structure, contemporary classics and cohesion in her wardrobe,” says Head of Design, Caroline Carlryd. “Both girls are inspired by the same world, they just see it differently.”
