The Monse Fall 2019 collection featured button-downs, blazers, cable knits, sports jerseys where Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim have created new suits with an outdoorsy touch. A classic-looking brown tweed jacket came with a built-in nylon hoodie and patchworked trousers; another more sculptural blazer was layered over a funnel-neck zip-up.

The collection featured cargo pants, functional parkas, and hardy buckles and straps, appealing to both genders adding to the trend’s longevity: Garcia said he knew they’d hit their stride when the buffalo-check hoodies and leather-trimmed anoraks looked equally cool on their male and female fit models.

Those anoraks were among the more novel, investment-worthy items; ditto the oversize shearling with a diamond jacquard pattern that mimicked a classic Patagonia fleece. Garcia’s favorite piece made a subtler statement: a short-sleeved performance jersey top with a drawstring cinching the waist, an asymmetrical hem, and a slit at the neck. It was inspired by a cycling shirt one of his colleagues wore to the office and will make a clever alternative to a T-shirt or button-down.
