Tsolo Munkh - "The Flight" - S/S 2014

1 comment
Tsolmandakh Munkhuu grew up in Mongolia. She moved to France in 2005 and studied at the Atelier Chardon Savard. In 2010, she won the Public Award of the Hyères International Fashion and Photography Festival and launched her very own brand. Now based in Oulan Bator, Tsolo Munkh presents her collections during Paris fashion weeks. Her creative projects are still heavily influenced by the mongolian steppes, but even though some designs are inspired by Mongolian and Buddhist traditional elements, TSOLO doesn’t hesitate to take ideas from details of the worlds surrounding her. Her creations combine embroidery, paintings, creasings of recovered materials, and her use of ample volumes contrast with the cuts’ fluidity.
Collection for S/S 2014 under name "The Flight" is an ode to her country Mongolia,  and is inspired by the eagle. The eagle’s plumage and majestic look is used as a reference. There is a collar on a “gilet” that evokes the collar of feathers around an eagle’s neck. Another creation has two gold and silver wings, embroidered with glass beads. In falconry, the hood or leather cap covering the head of the eagle when it hunts, was the inspiration behind some of the skirts and dresses.
