The local fashion scene is booming, and independent labels are on the rise. From chic clothes to shoes, accessories, and jewellery, there are some true talents in the local fashion scene in Munich.


I recently came across the brand “The casual MONKS” and totally digg their style. The name of the city of Munich is derived from the Old/Middle High German term Munichen, meaning “by the monks”. It derives from the monks of the Benedictine order who ran a monastery at the place that was later to become the Old Town of Munich; hence the monk depicted on the city’s coat of arms.

jolie-banditin-royalThe name of the fashion brand “The casual MONKS” says it all. It stands for your home, for comfort and serenity – reflecting traditional values from the Benedictine MONKS, cherishing the virtue of modesty. Their design reminds you of traditional Bavarian lifestyle, combined with a casual attitude towards life, expressing your individual style.

I say: thumbs up, folks – we are a huge fan of your latest collection.
