DROP THIS NAME MONSE

This New York brand has; cool new take on easy dressing

Designers Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim met while working for Oscar De La Renta – Fernando for six years as designer, and Kim for 12 years as design studio director.

De La Renta’s easy brand of femininity has heavily influenced the design duo, but make no mistake, Monse is very much playing to its own modern, sexy tune. Using the classic white shirt as a starting point, it has created a collection that is deceptively simple. At first glance, the opening look from the S/S16 show (top right) is just a shirt, tied to create a minidress. But in fact, it’s sculpted, fitted and perfectly cut. As Garcia said after their New York show, “We’re inspired by real girls today who wear jeans, flats… they want something easy.” Amen to that.

Drama with a side of 70s style? Were all over Vinyl

Awesome TV alert: Martin Scorsese, Mick Jagger (yes, actual Mick Jagger) and Terence ‘The Sopranos’ Winter have teamed up with I IBO to create Vinyl, a ten-part drama about the music scene in ’70s New York. Bobby Cannavale (Boardwalk Empire, Nurse Jackie) takes the lead as a record exec, Richie Finestra, who’s behind the times but trying to get his label back 011 track. Olivia Wilde plays his wife, Devon, an ex-actress and model, with Juno Temple as his ambitious A+R assistant. And the wardrobe department have clearly had a brilliant time with the ’70s fashion. A smart, well-written drama that looks amazing, too? Get involved.

Vinyl starts on Sky Atlantic on February 15
