The diagnosis: a serious case of mono(chrome).
The culprit: Cidenzi Mori, a new line from NYC-based designer Joel Cidenzi (Rag & Bone, Koi Suwannagate) with more black and white than a Michael Jackson impersonator competition.
Inspired by a gap-year journey with stops in the Nevada desert (Burning Man), his native Thailand, and Europe, Cidenzi designs for those on the move.
Get warm in a black and charcoal V-front sweatshirt or up your ebony/ivory dosage with a graphic-blocked blouse, origami tank, or asymmetrical wrap skirt in ecofriendly cupro. A long black gown slit up to you-know-where is sure to raise temperatures.
The sickest pieces are leather — simple shorts, an elastic-waist skirt with pockets, a dual personality shift with pleats in front and nothing in back. Several pieces are available now; others ship in about a month.
You’re sure to catch it by then.
