A Détacher

A Détacher

Posted 12/12/2010 December 2010
Mona Kowalska named her cult New York label ‘A Détacher’, French for ‘to be detached’, simply because she “liked the way it sounded.” Having spent her formative design years in Italy and then later running the Paris design studio of Sonia Rykiel, Kowalska’s own label has become something of a sleeper hit amongst the New York fashion cognoscenti. The intriguing mix of sharp edged, architectural separates feel grown-up but far from obvious, “I like structure…I like clothing that you put on and feel dressed,” but Kowalska acknowledges that her label is “just never going to be mass” – precisely what makes it so appealing.
