Upon my arrival at Monki SS12 press day my jaw dropped to the ground, dripping with nose bleed and waving a stained white handkerchief in silly despair, I surrender! I so want to steal all the Monki samples and mascots under my arms (including the hangers) and discreetly leave the building. The SS12 collection is ferociously cute, comes in 4 themes – California Dancing, Nautical But Nice, Step Into The Jungle and Suprematist Move…my favourite. I was very fortunate to meet the Monki Concept Manager Yvonne Da Silva (a fellow Swede and Chinese herself), so lovely in fact our casual conversation lasted…well, it could last a lifetime. I’m very looking forward to their first stand alone store opening on Carnaby Street, London on February! Can’t wait to splurge, woohoo!
