BULLETT Plays Dress Up with Emerging Designer Mundi Vondi

+

Icelandic artist, fim director and designer Mundi Vondi is the mind behind “Mundi Designs,” a collection of uniquely textured garments. The multi-talented artist first appeared on Iceland’s fashion scene with his bold patterned sweaters, sold at KronKron, a concept store in Reykjavik. Today, Mundi has gone global with a full line that includes outerwear, dresses and trousers, not to mention an independent film, Rabbit Hole, that received rave reviews during Paris Fashion Week.

For Twilight Bone, Mundi’s fall/winter collection, the designer created unisex looks that perfectly blended high-fantasy and the outdoors. Nordic cyber skiers walked the runway, donning futuristic black and white digital prints and wildly colored hair extensions.

Mundi is not limited to designing and filmmaking, though; while completing his studies in Iceland, Mundi and two classmates formed MoMS, an artist collective focused on sculpting, painting and interactive art events. Soon after its creation, MoMS partnered with well-known Austrian collective Gelitin and had various exhibitions from New York at the Deitch to Venice at the Biennale. Mundi is only at the cusp of a flourishing career with his sights set on redefining an industry by blurring the lines between fashion and art.
