Monse Fall 2019 Ready-To-Wear Collection Review
Description
Monse's Fall 2019 collection was truly commendable, Though it wasn't the most exciting offering they've had, it ticked all the boxes on what's new and trending in the fashion sphere nowadays. It was enough to keep them relevant, but if they want to make a bigger mark on fashion, they'd have to do better than that!

It’s either you go for old-school tailoring or you go for new-age streetwear. Usually, there’s no middle-ground, but all of that changed with Monse’s Fall 2019 collection. In an equilibrium of precise tailoring and relaxed sportswear, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim presented an interesting offering that played on both trends. However, they played both in somewhat half-hearted ways, and it left us divided! On one hand, we can’t deny how incredible their suiting was this season. They even deconstructed them a bit—the shoulder-bearing opening number was exceptionally noteworthy—to create new dimensions of the age-old craft. Fitted to a tee, some were a tad too rigid though. As for the sportswear, they left a lot to be desired. Some were commendable, particularly the performance pieces that looked just as elegant as the tailoring. But once the gimmicky logos came onto the scene, that’s where we started to lose interest. Had the design duo stayed within their initial refined and elegant framework throughout this Monse collection, this could have been a bigger hit! For now, it’s just right!
