MONSE

  • Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia (who met while working at Oscar de la Renta) started MONSE with an aim to create 'modern and feminine' pieces. Inspired by ripped-apart menswear and classic tailoring with a deconstructed perspective, MONSE is a line where women can find easy-to-wear pieces with an offbeat edge – think cascading hems, slashed silhouettes, and unique fabrications.
