COLLECTIONS

SPRING SUMMER 2017


A year ago, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim debuted their first collection together, after having worked together at Oscar de la Renta for several years. Almost instantly, Monse quickly went from start-up to global phenomenon, with immediately success with retail and on the red carpet. Heading in a very quintessential direction, they created a new definition of "effortless," turning ordinary pieces into something truly special. Shine permeated through much of the collection, including styles ranging from sequin dresses and chiffon skirts to silk pajama-inspired pieces.

SPRING SUMMER 2017


Wanting to begin telling the world what their DNA is, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim set out to make a statement for Spring 2017. The sense of rebellion was very clear. The duo accessories models with septum piercings, large satin chokers, punky boots, and sexy leather heels. The first series of looks included repeating elements - shirting and suiting with an emphasis on stripes. The second series of looks brought something that truly shined, in the form of rough-cut sequin gowns and splattered slime-like sequin designs. Scarves also adorned the runway with a fresh take on a classic and transforming it into something truly sexy.


M IS FOR... MONSE:
SERIOUS SHINE


With both the old and the new, Spring 2017 featured traditional shirting and suiting, while also including a more 'goth meets glam' look, comprised of models with piercings in beautiful sequins gowns. "I loved it. I want every piece!" said Marie Clarie's editor-in-chief, Anne Fulenwider.
