Monse spring/summer 2017 collection catwalk show for NYFWNew York Fashion Week SS17
Last spring Monse came onto the scene at New York Fashion Week with a convincing debut collection based around the idea of an easy but glamorous basic – the button-down shirt – reimagined. Clearly their look struck a chord with the fashion-savvy crowd because long before the show was set to start a line filled with editors and bold-faced names had already formed down the block.
Though only in their third season, it is clear that Monse designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia have earned a great deal of industry respect, no doubt in part from their Oscar de la Renta pedigree.
The show started with a nod to their signature shirts worn off the shoulder with slightly oversized cuffs. Shirt dressing remained a strong theme throughout the collection paired with Monse’s take on the classic men’s pinstripe suit reconstructed for a modern woman. Bare shoulders and slouchy cuts remained a regular trend across Monse’s daywear helping to add delicacy to garments that could otherwise come across as quite masculine.
Though there was much focus on their modern daywear, Monse didn’t shy away from a more overt glamour when it came to the evening. There were silk outfits that looked to be inspired by flowing scarves and eveningwear embellished with boldly coloured sequins.
It appears Kim and Garcia aim to offer a 360-degree wardrobe that could take the modern woman from day to night, work to weekend, and with their spring summer 2017 collection they have certainly achieved that goal.
