LA­BEL LOVER

Philippine Tatler - - STYLE | NEWS -

Laura Kim and Fer­nando Gar­cia’s brand is sweep­ing the younger set off their feet. Kim at­tended the Pratt In­sti­tute in New York and in­terned at big-name brands. She was de­sign di­rec­tor six years af­ter join­ing Os­car de la Renta, and then Gar­cia, an ar­chi­tect with a heart for fash­ion, ar­rived. The duo founded Monse in 2015 af­ter leav­ing Os­car de la Renta. The la­bel pushes the bound­aries of con­tem­po­rary fash­ion, play­ing wfith asym­me­try and cut-outs, of­ten mix­ing fa­mil­iar and fem­i­nine suit­ing with more mas­cu­line mo­tifs like sport stripes and big buck­les. This ca­sual yet glam­orous mix has cat­a­pulted the brand to street-style fame and won fans such as Amal Clooney and Sarah Jes­sica Parker.
