The idea of dressing men, giving them individuality, emphasizing masculinity, came to Sonya Monina’s head when she moved to Kiev. According to the designer, most representatives of the stronger sex are dressed ordinary and monotonous. Not everyone can afford to buy branded goods. So there was a line of men’s T-shirts at reasonable prices. The collection wore the same simple, but original name – “8”. This number is Sony’s favorite figure, it symbolizes infinity.
