There’s something about Monarchy that is quickly making it a favorite of young Hollywood. Maybe it’s the fabrication or the innovative design, whatever it is; they’ve given us more of it in their Spring 2010 collection.
Eric Kim’s LA based brand kept it fresh with crepe and organza styled suits and dresses that could be worn as both day and evening wear. Dresses with deep necks and draping along with cropped shirts proved that Monarchy definitely has a pulse on what looks their clients and the rest of us crave. Kim even brought us a great update of a new staple, the Khaki high waited paper bag short. These shorts are perfect for day or night and have me counting down the days until spring starts.
The men’s suiting was heavily influenced by prep school attire with trim tailored sport coats, cardigans and thick rimmed glasses mixing in with denim and white military cotton shirts. These styles appear to be reaching out to modern guys and telling them it’s okay to wear slacks every now and then.
All in all the collection is fresh, young and hip, like the stars that lined the front row. Of course it had to have been so, since M.I.S.S. was in the building representing and we know, the ladies here are only up on the freshest trends.
