Mônot’s Fall/Winter 2022 expression lives between the then and the now. Nonlinear, the vision is one of serendipitous spirals and yet perfect succinctness – a reconciliation of time-honored codes of women’s ready-to-wear and the progressiveness luster of today.
Emblematic of his own cross-Atlantic upbringing, Artistic Director Eli Mizrahi imagined the collection whilst across three capitals, New York, Paris, and Beirut, with the femme fatals of each timezone—along with the nostalgic fantasy of Demi Moore in Indecent Proposal—pursading key facets of the Mônot woman. Elegant yet daring. Sophisticated but bold graphic. Modern and timeless.
Reflecting this coalescence, the season runway collection introduces familiar ensembles and silhouettes—the little black dress, the three piece suit—with a contemporary focus on powerful femininity and design-forward interpretations. Of course, tailoring is of particular significance. Expectly clasped to the human form, every detail is considered and perfected. It’s a nuanced evolution of the codes of the house and a seductive ponderance of eternal style.
Elegant yet daring, Sophisticated but bold graphic, Modern and timeless are also the shoes , powered by Sergio Rossi for the show: ultra glamour pumps and sandals underline the femininity, but also wedges in plexi, platforms and minima sandals in satin from the exclusive capsule Evangelie Smyrniotaki x Sergio Rossi, presented exclusively in Paris Fashion Week at Manot Fashion Show.
