Monika Chiang Spring 2013

-------

Label: Monika Chiang

Need to know: Monika Chiang’s fourth collection proved that she’s already got the formula for creating edgy sportswear down pat. Her on-trend accessories—think Isabel Marant-esque, studded sneaker wedges and chunky chain jewelry—are already flying off the shelves, and the Spring lineup was full of pieces that should fare equally well on the sales floor (after all, Chiang’s entrepreneur boyfriend, Chris Burch, is backing the line, and he knows a thing or two about driving a profit). Highlights at yesterday’s presentation include boxy bomber jackets cut from soft nappa leather and laminated lace, bright drawstring track pants cut from parachute silk, and sequin-embellished bra tops that upped the glam factor a bit. The designer’s growing fan base will go for the chain-link lace-up sandals and ankle-strap, architectural pumps here.

They say: “I was recently in South Africa over New Year’s and wasn’t expecting the vibrancy I experienced there. I found myself waking up extra early—and believe me, I’m not a morning person—to go on a run and explore the area, so this was really all about athleticism, but done my way,” Chiang told Style.com at the presentation yesterday.

Where to find it: Monika Chiang boutiques at 125 Wooster St., NYC, and 108 S. Robertson Boulevard, L.A.
