Let’s Monki around
SHINSAIBASHI — This month, H&Mowned brands Monki and Weekday opened up their own shops not so far from their big sister, over in the Ebisubashi building. Weekday has a focus on simple, modern styles made with quality textiles. Monki has more of a focus on fun, bold prints, unusual cuts and a store concept that includes an underwater scene, complete with floating jellyfish streamers overhead. Monki’s style was in part inspired by Tokyo’s infamous Harajuku street fashion, and they’ve opened a sister store slap bang in teen heaven Takeshitadori.
