24 Days of Emerging Designers: Cidenzi Mori
For spring 13, Joel Cidizeni, founder of Cidenzi Mori is whisking you into a collection called "California Yacht." Lightweight, effortless dresses, including a striped maxi and ones with a high-low hem offer flirtatious sex appeal. His Wilshire vest in a royal purple Japanese sateen cotton paired with demi shorts is just one of many silhouettes that are crafted with sharp tailoring and show a more structured approach. Details like double mandarin collars and leather pieces are seen throughout to provide twists on the familiar while his Marina cami and Beverly skirt are rising to the top.
In his third season, Joel describes the brand as "minimal, young and modern" and balances relaxed sensibilities, for those West Coast-like moments with sophisticated looks that are appropriate for chic city adventures.
