COLLECTIONS

FALL WINTER 2017


Fall 2017 was the marking point of the first fashion show during New York Fashion Week in which designers, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, combined both Oscar de la Renta and Monse together during one show. Newly appointed creative directors for fashion house, Oscar de la Renta, both Kim and Garcia promised a "reveal" to divide both collections. Keeping true to signature looks, the label focused on shirting, twisted tailoring, off-the-shoulder jackets, and slashed dresses. The finale showcased sequined gowns that look like dripping paint, inspired by artist Pat Steir.

FALL WINTER 2017


"While Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia are still finding their footing at the helm of Oscar de la Renta, Monse provided to be steady on its feet. There were all of their classic hits, from the reworked dress shirt that landed them on the map to purposefully askew tailoring to varied iterations of their velvety concoctions in cobalt blue and cherry red - Fall 2016's peachy pink version landed on Brie Larson at The Oscars. This seasons? Expect to see the silky shoulder slashed gowns and the Pat Steir-inspired drip sequin dresses on the red carpet. Meanwhile, the goat and astrakhan strappy fur coats will be on everyone's wish list." ~ The Daily Front Row
