The Monse Fall 2021 RTW collction takes a subversive approach on back-to-school dressing with Jordan Alexander’s character Julien Calloway, from HBO Max’s reboot of Gossip Girl, as the primary muse of the season.
Giant sweaters emblazoned with crests and symbols come with chewed-up, fraying edges; pleated skirts look like they’ve been unevenly shortened at home, a nod to Kim’s own habit of chopping up her high school uniforms; skirts have the trompe l’oeil effect of a blazer being wrapped around the waist; and tough leather jackets and leggings have sporty, adjustable white lacing up the sides.
The collection is a tough, punk-ish departure for Monse, mirroring the edgier Gen Z style of the show.
Pieces like the Inside Out Crest Sweater Dress interrupts the discipline of prep school dressing with deconstructed adaptations of a preppy Upper East Side ensemble classic.
