At first glance Monki's collections look a little tacky and cheap; collections that could satisfy a schoolgirl's idea of fashion as well as her pocket money budget. But if you look beyond the cutesie website and writing you'll actually find some bloody good clothes (admittedly I haven't seen them in person - they could be poorly made with the most synthetic of materials, but I'm willing to give Monki the benefit of the doubt) that wouldn't look out of place amongst Fendi's Winter offerings. It shows, it's not what you wear but how you wear it.
