Monse dedicated themselves to their streetwear theme by hosting yesterday's show at a skatepark in Manhattan. Crowds gathered along the edges huddled under umbrellas. The brand, which was founded in 2015 by Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia who also work as creative directors at Oscar de la Renta, continued its themes of deconstruction and slashed silhouettes in this new line.

The styles call back to the skater looks of the early 2000s with oversized sweaters and chains. The line also features Monse's signature blurring of masculinity and femininity through a meshing of items like oversized pants and tight crop tops. Designs shared accents of fabric choices such as peak through lace or the addition of knit sweaters. The silhouettes themselves are also reminiscent of the 2000s through slip dresses and cargo pants. The Monse duo successfully reimagined street life from twenty years ago.

In terms of colors Monse utilizes black basics with splashes of color. This is done both through patterning on black fabrics of the combination of different items. The color choices themselves are almost entirely primary. The most notable color stories are centered on blue, red, and green, showing a return to basics, but in an elevated way. The collection displays both solids and a heavy degree of patterning.

The accessorizing is reminiscent of grunge but far more toned down. Outfits have accents of chains from rings to bracelets to one sided earrings. It's evocative of the time when chain wallets were still acceptable. Additionally outfits all had boots that often crossed between a rain boot and a combat boot.

The collection is simple yet evocative, and perfect streetwear that will standout on the sidewalk while still being comfortable and casual. It's combination of strong femininity through flowing fabrics, and its masculinity, displayed in the baggier items, means their is something in this collection for everyone.
