Paris, France – New York fashion house Monse hit the catwalks with the presentation of its new and exciting collection for Spring/Sumer 2016. Replete with the codes that define’s the house’s aethetic appeal, it proposes many great elements for shaping the look of the season.
Founders and artistic directors Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia depend on their love affair with reworking structure into unexpected forms. Here large folds and draping are the key leitmotives that links one silhouette to the next. And to them they had handmade appliqués and other ornamentations as very visible embellishments. Once on the body, Monse reveals the woman’s strong shoulders, slim arm and long legs. There is a certain charm that takes place as the woman move through space and in time.
Kim and Garcia use bold blue, white and hints of very strong colors too in telling this story. They create quite a number of long gowns, dresses and more than generously ample and vouluminious trousers in the telling of this optimistic New York City story.
