Following his fall collection debut, Mônot designer Eli Mizrahi left the U.S. and spent two weeks alone at the Aman Venice.
“Funny enough I was the only guest at the hotel for those two weeks — I loved it. In my mind I thought, ‘What if I had this place to myself and threw a party, who would make the guest list and what would I dress them in?’ That’s how the sketches came together,” he said.
Like previous collections, resort emulated a steady evolution of Mizrahi’s signature sexy, sculptural elan with his travels in mind. In addition, the designer injected red into the otherwise black and white palette to represent both love and hate. “You can take that color and interpret it as a positive or negative,” he said over Zoom.
Mônot Resort 2022
The look: Dynamic and sexy; architectural.
Quote of note: “As you can see, there are barely any cutouts this season, because it’s expected for Mônot to come out with cutouts. So guess what? Surprise! We’re going in a different direction. But it’s’ still very sexy, very elevated.”
Key looks: Debut elevated and tailored, sustainable denim styles with peek-a-boo cutouts and topstitching details; the introduction of outerwear (a red trenchcoat); monochromatic separates and evening dresses (little tops with great, voluminous trousers; corsetry details, intriguing angles and less revealing cutouts).
The takeaway: At only 14 months old, the brand is impressively making strides to evolve Mizrahi’s sexy, body-hugging fashions into a rounded-out fashion label.
