NYFW Recap: Monika Chiang S/S 2013

24/09/2012 § 1 Comment

The spirit of designer Monika Chiang‘s eponymous collection is best viewed as an expression of her personal style and her distinctly global background.  A magpie of the best sort, Chiang draws inspiration from around the world and deftly combines seemingly disparate elements to create apparel, jewelry and accessories that are obviously fashion-forward, but effortlessly so.  These delicious tensions were immediately apparent when I attended her S/S 2013 presentation at Lincoln Center during NYFW, where she debuted a collection that was inspired by a recent trip to South Africa.

Full of jewel tones, rich textures, exotic skins, beautifully executed prints, a heaping serving of “moto” and a touch of androgyny, the Monika Chiang S/S 2013 woman is opulence and toughness, personified.  I was especially drawn to the complexity of her accessories, and her knack for juxtaposition is second to none.  I’m personally still reeling from the genius of black leather with cream silk and oxidized metal…

The gorgeous Monika Chiang.
