Spring 2018 Ready-to-Wear

Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim have certainly leaned in to Oscar De La Renta’s feminine legacy, offering up a finale of frilly confections this season—a much more textured take on the style than we saw in last season’s offering.

But that doesn’t mean the duo didn’t add a bit of the modern twist that has made Monse (their own label) such a hit—oversized button-down shirts and blazers made up a significant part of this collection. Considering nearly every brand this season has put forth its take on shirts and blazers, Garcia and Kim would have been missing out on one of Spring 2018’s biggest trends had they not included them. They’re right to try to keep the house competitive on the ready-to-wear scene.

But ultimately, women turn to ODLR for eveningwear, and Garcia and Kim proposed myriad options, tying everything together with bold colors and cutesy logos. It’s a contrast to last season’s sophistication, and one has to wonder if they took criticism of their debut collection a little too hard. Unfortunately, with the pressure for designers to knock it out of the park quickly, owners and critics often forget that it takes time for a vision to develop. Hopefully they’ll be able to find a style that makes everyone happy.
