Fabulous clothes at tiny little prices, in a shop stuffed with toys that look like owls. What's not to love? Monki, the sister brand of Swedish label Cheap Monday, has finally opened the doors to its first standalone store in the UK. Its bonkers flagships across the globe- think Cyberdog meets Ponyo- have been replicated here, with kooky oversized graphics and furniture design of an astro-nautical theme. Set over two floors on London's Carnaby Street, the Monki store shares a double fronted premises with Cheap Monday, but that's where the family resemblance ends- both have separate entrances and entirely separate shop fits. The Monki store houses its entire range of low priced, high fashion aimed at young women (but bought by all sorts of women, if the Time Out office is anything to go by.)
Monki is number 51 in our list of the 100 best shops in London.
