My Oh My, Mon­soon

Could this col­lec­tion mean it’s game, set and match to Mon­soon for SS17?

Some shops hold a cer­tain nos­tal­gia for us all. Chances are, you bought your first self-selected item of cloth­ing from Tammy Girl at the ten­der age of 12 (a shop­ping rite of pas­sage if there ever was one), a ‘proper’ fash­wun buy from Top­shop at 15 and, whether you bought any­thing or not, it’s likely you tried on all the dresses in Mon­soon, des­per­ately search­ing for The One in an­tic­i­pa­tion of that great teenage mile­stone: the leavers’ ball.

Fast-for­ward to 2017 and, amid the taffeta and tulle, Mon­soon has so much more to of­fer. For the new sea­son, the brand has ce­mented it­self as the ul­ti­mate trend hotspot on the high street and it’s the sub­tler pieces that re­ally war­rant the ‘must-have’ ac­co­lade. Pre­ci­sion-cut mil­i­tary jack­ets, pleated palaz­zos so wide they’re tip­toe­ing on cou­ture ter­ri­tory and the most beau­ti­fully crafted slip dress we’ve ever laid eyes on; th­ese are true game-chang­ers.

In­tri­cate em­broi­dery is a given – this is Mon­soon af­ter all – but the show­stop­ping crop jacket and shorts combo (which comes with Valenti­nowor­thy needle­work as stan­dard) en­sures Mon­soon has pole po­si­tion go­ing into SS17…
