Mona Kowalska presented a line of minimalistic casual
wear for Spring 2009. The line was created from
a neutral palette and featured skinny-cut pants,
blousy walking shorts, soft knits and strategically
placed zippers. The line is filled with attitude,
but it is the "You don't have to shout to be
noticed kind of attitude."
is a quote from the press release that describes
the line: "Designer, Mona Kowalska serves up
an immaculate selection of covetable dresses, jackets
and jewelry in her bohemia-meets-Manhattan minimalist
boutique. The boutique is celebrating their 10th
Anniversary with a runway show at the Altman Building.
They have devoted clientele such as: Maggie Gyllenhaal
(Actress,) Amy Larocca (Fashion Editor,) Helena
Christensen (Former model and fashion photographer,)
Gian Franco Ferre (Designer,) etc. It is a lifestyle
brand that will feature ready-to-wear, belts, bags,
and shoes. They sell in LA, NY, and Japan."
The New York A Detacher
boutique is located in Nolita at 262 Mott St. It
is definitely worth a visit for the fashionista
who wants to look "hot" but despises neon.
