MONIQUE MAKING MOVES: Monique Péan is ramping up her business. The jewelry designer has hired Katelyn Buckley Colas as global sales director. She was previously in charge of wholesale for the Americas at Balenciaga. Additionally, the collection is launching in three new stores — Dover Street Market in London, Montaigne Market in Paris and Alara Lagos in Nigeria — and is moving her New York offices to a three-level space in SoHo, with a dedicated space for private appointments for its growing bespoke business. “We are excited to launch in Alara Lagos, a beautiful David Adjaye-designed store, and Montaigne Market. Both Lagos and Paris are new markets for us, and with our upcoming launch in Dover Street Market London, we will be expanding our London presence,” said Péan.
