Monarchy Collection - Mercedes-Benz L.A. Fashion Week Fall 2008
(LOS ANGELES) Roll Call: Rex Lee, Andrew Keegan, Shar Jackson, Efren Ramirez, Jenna Jameson
Chic Report: Monarchy designer Erik Kim told us he was inspired by layers, and it showed. His fall collection was a fresh, slightly urban take on luxe winter separates. The color palette was a warm mix of burnt orange, green, and smoky grey, and the looks were perfect for a jaunt to Aspen. Standouts included a knit cap with braided accents, well-cut utilitarian trousers, a series of chunky scarves nipped in with skinny black belts, and ultra-chic shawls and capes. In case the audience missed the winter wonderland theme, the show ended with a flurry of fake snow drifting from the ceiling. Festive!
