This is how Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim, the founders of the brand created in 2015 in New York City define Monse.
Monse: the brand
This duo, today at the artistic direction of the house Oscar de la Renta where they met years before when they were interns, was able to create a brand that I am sure, is here to last. Even before their first parade for the fall winter 2015 New York fashion week, there were a buzz around the brand. Since a lot of celebrities had already worn their creations. Indeed, their original architectural lines and their high sense of fashion were hard to resist to.
Like many people, I discovered the brand when Rihanna wore one of their dress during her award ceremony at the prestigious Harvard University. I was then thinking of buying some of they creations. However, distributed only in online retailers in France, I decided to wait. I wanted to see, to touch the materials. You can imagine how happy I was when I found out Maria Luisa will propose a selection of the spring summer 2018 collection. I decide to go for three pieces. The first two are the one I have choose for today’s look. A sportswear pants inspire by the ones in men’s wardrobe and a white shirt. Nothing special at first sight and yet …
If there is one thing that seduced me in Monse is the fit. It’s no longer a secret for anyone I like androgynous silhouettes with perfect proportions. If you’re like me, Monse is what you need.
The pants inspired by the 90s sports pants, revisited in a noble material and in a flamboyant color.
The classic white shirt with buttons on the shoulders, all in a maxi cut? Hard to resist.
A fashion look, all in volume and simplicity. Easy to wear so you do not mess up. I am in awe.
Remember: pensez, appliquez, modez.
Je suis pétrie d'art et de mode depuis plus de 10 ans maintenant ! J'estime que la mode est bien plus que ce qu'elle peut paraître. J'en fais un outil d'acceptation de soi au travers des looks et relookings que je propose sur Le Club des Cotonettes ! Aider les autres à se révéler à travers leur style ? Mon but ultime.
