I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable holiday and New Year and now it is back to business. Today I am happy to showcase the designers behind Monse and their shoe collection. The label was started by Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia in 2015 after working at Oscar de la Renta for a combined eighteen years. Kim and Garcia joined Oscar de la Renta as interns and worked at the label until the founder’s death in 2014.
Monse is the name of Fernando Garcia’s mother and rapidly gained acceptance in the fashion industry via their deconstructed designs and celebrity fans such as Amal Clooney, Sarah Jessica Parker and Selena Gomez. In addition, to working on their label the design duo worked for Carolina Herrera before returning to Oscar de la Renta for the Fall 2017 season.
The shoes just like the clothes are known for their distinctive angles and mixture of dissimilar materials. Kim and Garcia mostly used mules for their shoe collection and can be currently purchased from Moda Operandi.
