Alix Thomsen x Monoprix Capsule Collection

Amongst the fashionable indie boutiques and exclusively-online designers, Monoprix remains a trusty friend in times of need and limited funds! Once stigmatized because of its basic designs and unappealing fabrics, the French retail chain has since reinvented itself with a stronger focus on high end customers and fashion conscious shoppers. Following the very successful H&M collaborations, Monoprix’s womenswear collection has seen numerous guest designers including Antik Batik, Ba&h, Giles Deacon and Alexis Mabille which leads me to the topic of  this post…

Having worked in the world’s most prestigious fashion houses including Chloé and Lacoste, young designer Alix Thomsen launched her own brand, Thomsen, in 2009 mixing retro prints with modern cuts and gathering a loyal following including Léa Seydoux and Caroline de Maigret. Thomsen is behind the latest capusle collection set to launch in Monoprix stores across France from the 8th of March.

Jungle-themed prints and stripes feature heavily in the 7-piece collection with cute accessories, such as socks, headscarves and even a pyjama pouch, and more daring ready-to-wear pieces in the form of a sweater, shirt dress and straight-cut crop top… all perfectly suited to the coming Spring season.

I’m not quite sure what to make of the overall collection, I feel it’s a little bold and yet I am drawn in by the bright colour palette…. Well, I suppose I’ll just have to head down to the launch event for a closer look!

Don’t miss the collection in stores and online at Monoprix from the 8th of March.
