Monse and Hudson’s Bay Get Graphic in Their New Collaboration
Our #stripespotting eyes spied this gem in NYC.
Graphic stripes are a Monse mainstay. Since launching their red-hot collection in 2016, the design duo of Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia have established shirting stripes and bold slashes of colour as house hallmarks. The New York-based line also nabbed the Swarovski Award for Emerging Talent at the CFDA Fashion Awards earlier this year. Suffice it to say we were pleasantly surprised when our #stripespotting eyes spied a Hudson’s Bay-inspired blanket coat for the label’s Resort 2018.
“Monse is a strong believer in stripes and primary colours,” says Kim. “These elements are part of our DNA, which is why a collaboration with Hudson’s Bay Company for this coat was an obvious choice.” With Monse’s skilled assembly, the iconic wool blanket has taken on a decidedly modern and sophisticated life. “The easy shape and boldness of the volume felt right for Resort,” says Garcia. “It’s the throw-on coat for those early fall nights.” When the colourful topper arrives at HBC, we’ll be first in line.
