The last time we headed to Monki, it was all shapeless clothes, black leggings and long queues. But judging by their new collections for this autumn/winter, it looks like the winds of change are blowing down Langham Place!
The sister brand of H&M are bringing some much needed colour to their quirky mix of street-style and Scandinavian fashion. There are four key themes – Bright Young Things, inspired by 60s Oxbridge back-to-school style; Fade To Grey, monochromatic grungy minimalism; Owl & Fox, casual knitwear with a British countryside vibe and Golddust Woman, Monki’s take on the 70s Studio 54 nostalgia that all the big designers have been channelling over the past few seasons.
I love the styling of these shots; there’s something almost fairytale-esque about them and their quirkiness really sets them apart from the more mainstream imagery at other stores – and you know we love to be a little bit different at Sassy!
I’ve picked out a few of my favourite items to whet your appetites for a Monki shopping spree!
Odette knitted top ($300) – Novelty knits are all the rage this season, but I love this charming classic take on the trend. Plus, swans have been all the rage since Natalie Portman went mental in Black Swan!
For those of you that love colour but aren’t ready to step out in that bubblegum pink dress just yet, matching a black top with a coloured skirt is a great option. We love the muted teal and lavender of these figure-hugging Belina skirts ($300) too.
