The new collection for our in house label at Monk House Design is centred around the versatility of clothing and the freedom of movement and comfort that flexibility affords. Designer Pixie Mc Elroy was also interested in creating a collection of pieces that attempt to transcend age; responding directly to the wide and diverse audience that Monk House commands. The notion of oversized, or loose fitting, yet flattering styles was the inspiration for the 6 individual pieces that make up the new range. Comprising of an updated Relaxed Pant -a little length has been added to the leg, available in light blue seersucker wool blend (limited numbers!) as well as in blush and ink linen, along with the addition of the Relaxed short, which follows the same shape as its pant counterpart, however ending at the mid thigh. In the mix is the already very popular, Mod Singlet - which is a one shouldered singlet top in the softest rib fabric, coming in a XS/S and a M/L. In the same soft and durable fabric is the Lettuce Tee and Lettuce Short; both featuring baby locked edges and a slim fit - both incredible layering pieces and ever so versatile for work and play! Rounding off the collection is the Oversized top which is a one size fits most linen scoop neck top-shirt with 3/4 sleeves and incredible drape, featuring side seams splits - which create a dynamic edge, coming in both ink and blush linen.
Colour for the collection was inspired by the signature Monk House pink; a blush pink that permeates through the store and beyond - celebrated in the architecture and colouring of the CBD store - interior of which was designed by Flack studio, back in 2016.
The location of the shoot pays tribute to this beautiful design work and honours the 15 years of Monk House Design being in existence, aiming to be a marker in time; capturing a moment of change and excitement in Monk history to be sure!
