Graphic stripes are a MONSE main­stay. Since launch­ing their red-hot col­lec­tion in 2016, the de­sign duo of Laura Kim and Fer­nando Gar­cia have es­tab­lished shirt­ing stripes and bold slashes of colour as house hall­marks. The New York-based line also nabbed the Swarovski Award for Emerg­ing Tal­ent at the CFDA Fash­ion Awards ear­lier this year. Suf­fice it to say we were pleas­antly sur­prised when our #stripespot­ting eyes spied a Hud­son’s Bayin­spired blan­ket coat for the la­bel’s Re­sort 2018. “Monse is a strong be­liever in stripes and pri­mary colours,” says Kim. “Th­ese el­e­ments are part of our DNA, which is why a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Hud­son’s Bay Com­pany for this coat was an ob­vi­ous choice.” With Monse’s skilled assem­bly, the iconic wool blan­ket has taken on a de­cid­edly mod­ern and so­phis­ti­cated life. “The easy shape and bold­ness of the vol­ume felt right for Re­sort,” says Gar­cia. “It’s the throwon coat for those early fall nights.” When the colour­ful top­per ar­rives at HBC, we’ll be first in line. —C.M.
