Monnalisa: A Modern Twist on Renaissance Inclinations

The autumn/winter collections from Monnalisa offer a modern twist on Renaissance inclinations, anachronistically applying historical details— Victorian collars, antique lace, art deco-inspired rhinestones—to au currant trends. 

Classic poplin or twill shirts with bell, pagoda, or tulip sleeves are a nod to broader trends in fashion while hyper-feminine plumetis tulle dress pairs with a bold, eco leather jacket for a daring look. Wide-legged and cropped pants with scalloped edges and surprising neoprene details pair with floral prints, stars, and hearts.

The season’s palette evoke the soft winter hues of barley, gray, and mauve, with pops of fuchsia and pomegranate. Fabrics include sweats layered with laminated fabrics, damask and velvet for special occasions.
