Long Term Partner | A Detacher

"œWe commemorate our ongoing love affair with the creative envisions of Mona Kowalski and her cult label A Detacher." Behind the label In the Spring/Summer of 2010 Couverture fell in love with A Detacher and has been proudly stocking collections ever since. The New York label is the brain child of designer Mona Kowalski. Kowalski€'s colourful background can be said to have helped paint the canvas of what we have come to love as A Detacher. Polish born and raised in Baltimore, Mona studied political science before moving to Italy to focus on fashion. After heading the design studio at Sonia Rykiel in Paris, Mona left the large fashion house to further pursue and express her own creative voice. Moving back to the States to start her own collection, A Detacher was launched in 1998, opening shop and studio in New York one year later. Now with 18 years of business behind it, A Detacher remains operating out of New York and sells to an exclusive selection of around 35 clients worldwide. Why we love A Detacher French for 'to be detached'™, A Detacher has retained its status as an independent label, choosing smaller boutiques over department stores, and eschewing the rapid and pressurised environment of fashion today. Working with a small team of 4 at her in-store studio, Mona always expresses the desire for her brand to remain personal and collections intimate in size. Using conceptual shapes, colours, eccentric prints and knits, A Detacher garments are always unconventionally beautiful. Steering away from trends, collections are created around abstract themes such as the lives of former athletes, bored childhood imaginations and self-management for this season. With her signature looks always incorporating layering, mixing textures and volumes, Mona told Couverture her winter style is basically '˜wear everything you like at once'. Objecting to the notion of 'fashion for fashion's sake', Mona says she makes her wares with ˜the subway catching woman™ in mind, choosing high-quality versatile fabrics that correspond to the way people live. A Detacher HQ is in itself a beautiful space located on Mulberry Street in New York's Nolita district. Reflecting the same level of personality and intimacy as Mona'™s designs, visitors to the store are offered an assortment of current A Detacher pieces as well as scatterings of beautiful objects and treasures made or found along the way. Through her devotion to her label, Mona and her team have gained a loyal, almost cult-like following of A Detacher clientele. As the sole stockists of A Detacher within the UK, we feel privileged to have gained strong relationships with such creative minds and eagerly await what is to come!
