What inspired this collection?
The lifestyle of a woman in the city. She is running from the gym to the office and to events in the evening. Fall really has that vibe throughout the collection!
What are some of your favorite pieces in the collection and why?
My favorite piece is our half and half jumpsuit and pinstripe suit, it’s the perfect example of an office to event outfit. The look is comfortable and versatile you can wear it to many different occasions, I especially love that it's color-blocked.
How would you style one of your favorite pieces in the collection?
For fall I love our leggings with an oversized sweater!
What are the key pieces of every Monse collection and how are they updated for this season?
We think our slash knits are a signature for Monse. For our Fall 2019 collection we love the Cold Shoulder Fisherman Knit and our Snowflake Zip Turtleneck, knits are key for the brand.
How would you describe the Monse girl? Who are Monse’s muses and where is she wearing your pieces?
We imagine the Monse girl has a fun job working on what she’s passionate about. She's travelling around the world, for work and fun. She wears our clothes to the office and to events. She wears her look during the day and in the evening, a real city girl.

How do you balance each of your own visions when designing a collection together?
We chat about lot of things that are related to work and not related to work, which keeps the two of us on a similar flow. However, we are polar opposites of each other, so we have to keep our minds open to each others ideas!
Can you tell us about your partnership with the various NYC animal shelters? How would you describe Monse's core values?
We love our animals and we are very glad we could help! This was our first attempt to do charity as a company and it really got our whole team excited to work together on the project. We think it’s important to give back and that as a team we can do it together. It makes us feel good about what we do as a company.
