The Monarchy Collection Sprign 2010 Collection was glitzy and glamorous. The whole thing had an air of being “too cool for school” while at the same time … not being very cool at all. The looks created by Eric Kim – especially for the women – seemed a bit dated and 90’s, calling to mind the girls of Guess Jeans ads. Not something one typically associates with high-end fashion. Also a bit disorienting was the fact that the men’s pieces were much more tailored and put together, if over styled. I didn’t get the impression that these men and these women were going to the same place.
If you’re looking for a hot date dress or something to drive the ex wild, you’ll certainly find it here. And men could really find a lot of basic items for their spring wardrobe in the collection. But overall, not very fashion forward.
