Last night, Icelandic designer Mundi unveiled his SS2012 collection "Chained and dumped in the ocean" with an installation at EVA.
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.
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.
