Founded in 2009 by childhood friends Sean Monahan and Monica Paolini, Sea NY is a New York-based women’s fashion brand. After nine years as Design Director for Betsey Johnson and three years as Head Design Assistant for Jill Stuart, Monica joined forces with Sean to launch Sea New York. Together, they share a vision that combines Monica’s eye for vintage-feeling pieces and Sean’s leaning towards more modern, clean styles. Their considered perspective forms an aesthetic that is quietly inviting and elegantly balanced. Classic silhouettes with a distinctive use of lace, embroidery, knits and technical fabrics result in collections that are at once both effortless and optimistic, romantic and boyish. Each season, the duo continues to refine and reinvent their own style for the modern customer who relies on the brand for their day-to-day wardrobe.
