Partners at Showtime: Oscar de la Renta and Monse

ICYMI: Several years ago, Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia met as members of the Oscar de la Renta design team, and they decided to start their own line. Monse was born in the design duo’s evenings and weekends, but then just last year Laura and Fernando were given the top jobs at Oscar—they were made co-creative directors. While they’re certainly not the first designers to hold down two jobs (think Jonathan Anderson pulling double duty at J.W. Anderson and Loewe), the OdlR-rooted genesis of Monse made for a special case.

It was announced this past January that the pair would show their debut collection as creative directors at Oscar at the same time as the latest from their closely watched two-year-old side project.

A fashion double-header!

The Hottest Cold Shoulders: Jason Wu

All the world loves a shoulder right now. From Burberry’s Gerber print to Vetements’ cutout hoodie, we can’t get enough little peeks and seductively dropped necklines, and there’s no sign that the trend is slowing down.

And so far at least, Jason Wu‘s got a lock on the genre for fall. In a collection full of sumptuously modern and ever-so-elegantly askew silhouettes for daytime and night, the knits, silks and burnout velvets with their partially baring tops stole the show.
