A former Goldman Sachs banker, Monique Pean knows more than a thing or two about making sound investments. Her lavish, eco-friendly line set a new precedent in the industry for earthbound luxury when it debuted in 2006 and now, more than six years on, Pean’s designs still regularly inspire fashion editors looking for organically inspired, exotic chic. Winner of the Eco Domani Fashion Foundation award and a CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund runner-up, Pean’s multi-ethnic heritage (the product of a Haitian father and Jewish-American mother) and deeply developed penchant for world travel visually informs every piece she creates. Expect humanely sourced ivory, innovatively used Tahitian pearls, and brilliant jewel-toned stones.
