Now we bring you Monarchy with their Spring and Summer 2010 collection, debuting at none other than New York Fashion Week. Monarchy's Eric Kim said he created the line because America needed, an edgy line to compete with European fashion houses, such as Diesel and Miss Sixty, he says, quote: "Monarchy is that brand"; so we asked Eric about any European influences for this newest collection, and he said quote: "I thought about what young, trendsetting fashionistas would wear while on vacation in St. Tropez or Nice, and I based the collection off of that."
Eric says he is not trying to be another Alexander McQueen or John Paul Gaultier, explaining that he just wants to, quote- "produce beautiful, wordrobe and sellable clothing", Monarchy is hand made in Los Angeles, and features hand styled graphics, jeans are made of Japanese, European and American denim, and celebrity fans such as Jessica Biel and Shannon Elizabeth as well as the Kardashian sisters love Monarchy. It's available at chic boutiques across the country, you can of course see our shopping directory for more links.
