Sniffle. Sneeze. Achoo.
Bless you. Hope you’re taking your vitamins.
But you still might catch a case of Mono. Not from locking lips with a snot-nosed stud, from admiring the artsy Vancouver, B.C., clothing line.
Designer Heather Martin begins each piece from the Mono collection as a series of evolving art projects or collaborations ranging from simple illustrations, collages, and the R&D of new textile techniques to elaborate installations.
Mono’s current series (one titled Shard, the other Flight) explore the balance between darkness and light, fragmentation and composure. Case in point: the contrast dyed Collision tee and the Spanned dress, with its stalactite hem yet simple silhouette.
A sexy fringed and knotted leather necklace offers a study of layering and repetition.
And might just lead to a new kissing epidemic.
