About Monika CHIANG
Monika Chiang’s eponymously named collection debuted in the Fall of 2011. The impeccably curated collection includes apparel, handbags, shoes and jewelry with a distinctly Monika Chiang perspective. The launch was followed by the opening of stores in Los Angeles and New York City.
ABOUT THE COLLECTION
Designed as a reflection of Monika’s own signature style, the collection evokes modern glamour steeped in an elegant nonchalance. Seemingly disparate and contradictory sensibilities combine in the most unexpected ways – deep sensuality and confidence exist alongside a subtle vulnerability, the softness of feathers set against steely metal studs, bursts of rich pigment mingled with soft earth tones and tough black leather paired with sensual sheer knits. This finely wrought tension is at the heart of the MONIKA CHIANG brand.
Monika Chiang spent her youth traveling the world and living abroad with her globetrotting artist mother and two siblings. Her sense of style bloomed at a young age and is informed by her wanderlust and appreciation of exotic cultures, which influences her collection and allows her to push boundaries in chic new ways.
“The MONIKA CHIANG collection is not designed for a woman of a specific age or who lives in a particular place – it’s all about her attitude and spirit. She is a fashion-forward woman with a deep appreciation of other cultures,” Monika explains. “I design with her in mind. I want my collection to help empower women to dress with confidence and feel comfortable, without sacrificing style.”
