On March 1st Monki released their first ever smartphone app Monki Mi. Monki Mi is a free photo booth app, inspired by the Japanese purikura trend. The user can monkify herself with crazy effects like huge eyes, super-smooth skin and stamps. Having fun with fashion has been the guiding-star for the project, that, apart from traditional cartoon-like stamps and more or less crazy make-up effects features a photographed selection from the Monki SS12 accessories collection. Monki Mi was created for IOS+, which means that it can be used on iPhone 4 (or an up-graded iPhone 3) as well as iPad. It's available for free at the App Store.
Furthermore there was a party in Hamburg on Friday to celebrate the launch of the latest Monki magazine 'The Travel Issue'.
