The designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia established their brand Monse as a fashion house with a signature style. The photo shoot for the lookbook for the Resort 2018 Collection took place on the streets of New York. Most certainly the perfect place to present such a youthful and fun collection.
White, black, orange, green and red are some of the colors that dominate in the collection. There are also a lot of patterns, asymmetry, and plaid. Laura and Fernando offer many separates that are perfect for different occasions. All of the designs are very chic and modern, made for the confident women who feel good in their skin.
Kim takes credit for the athleisure designs in the line. This is mostly because of her affection towards the gym. She also implemented details of her home country Canada, by using the red and the white color together. On of the best athleisure looks include two pairs of track pants, one with a green side strap and the other one with a red side strap. The knitted sports-like sweaters are a proof that these two designers can make everything look cool. If you had any doubts that plaid does not go well with the athleisure style, take a look at this collection.
Most of the dresses are asymmetric and they come in different lengths. The knee-length dresses are a good option for business women, daily events or even night out if you combine it with a good pair of heels. The most noticeable one is the maxi dress with white and orange stripes. It is a semi-transparent dress that has cutouts strategically placed on the shoulders. The long white dress, with a high side slit, is very sexy and elegant at the same time.
The skirts are actually a real piece of art. The most eye-catching detail of the Monse’s collection are the unzipped parts on the skirts that reveal just the right amount of skin.
Fernando and Laura also added some denim pieces to their Resort 2018 collection. A trendy denim jacket, skirt, and even a pair of denim boots, made for those who prefer a more relaxed style.
When it comes to jackets and coats Monse has something for every season. Apart from the denim jacket, there is a classy trench coat and a very interesting multi-colored cape that is both trendy and chic.
