Shein launches collection with US luxury brand Monse

Online fast-fashion retailer Shein and US luxury brand Monse have unveiled a new collection for their Shein X programme, an initiative to support independent artists and designers.

Founded in 2015 by Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia, co-creative directors of Oscar de la Renta, Monse is known for its ‘fragmented tailoring and asymmetry’.

The collection features styles from five independent designers who created their designs under the guidance of Kim and Garcia: Oxana Goralczyk (France), Jade Breyon (USA), Mathilde Lhomme (France), Aliya Brown (USA) and KL Allen (USA).

Kim said Monse has partnered with Shein to offer innovative fashion at accessible prices.

“Monse’s collections focus on disrupting menswear for women,” she continued. “We want to empower them with our designs, so they can feel strong enough to face anything. We’re proud to be part of a collaboration that elevates both women and emerging designers.”

Shein also made a donation to Dress for Success Greater New York City as part of the collaboration. These funds will support the expansion of the charity’s operations, including in-person styling sessions to enhance professional image, boost confidence and optimize wardrobes for career success.

“We are thrilled to work with Shein x Monse on this unique collaboration that will enable Dress for Success Greater New York City to continue supporting women by providing them with the tools they need to succeed in the workforce,” added Jennifer Wuerz, the charity’s interim director.

“This collection not only exemplifies the fusion of high fashion and accessibility, but also underscores a shared commitment to female empowerment.”

The Shein x Monse collection will feature a variety of styles and sizes, including dresses, jackets, blouses, pants and accessories. Prices range from $1.70 to $64.39.
