On a recent shopping trip to NYC last week, we stopped in Nolita to see the new MW10018 boutique and was quite impressed. The shopkeeper, Katherine was very gracious and personally took us around the store which was very clean and well organized. The Simply Natural Clothing items made for men and women were displayed beautifully. (my personal favorite is the 100% alpaca glovelets). it was nice to learn that clothing found throughout the store can be custom fit and made to order in the USA.

After working as a designer and merchandiser in Hong Kong for 23 years, Monique Wong opens a store dedicated to showcasing her own clothing line, MW10018, as well as garb from five other local designers: Dessu, Kai D., Huffdust, Lumete and Simply Natural Clothing. Expect to find an impressive collection of casual yet chic menswear ($40–$400), womenswear ($48–$525) and accessories ($35–$275). Ladies’ highlights include Dessu colorblock blouses ($325), house-label sheer maxidresses ($398) and Lumete oversize sunglasses ($245). Men should look for Huffdust graphic tees ($45) and Kai D. denim button-down shirts ($225). Shoppers wanting a more personalized garment can make an appointment to meet with Wong and create their own piece. Custom designs are priced on a case-by-case basis, and take between four to eight weeks to complete.
