J. Mendel revokes images of fabulous eveningwear and stunningly soft furs. This collection did not disappoint. It was all luxe fabrics, intricate detailing and gorgeous overlays. What was new? Plenty. Sculptural tulle was pretty big. The fabrics, you ask? Organza, chiffon, and huge cascading frills that would give any million dollar bride a complex. There was a lot of tweed in the pegged pants that gave a little more finesse to the collection.
The colors were on the paler, more demure side- peaches, creams, pale blues, jades, beiges, greys, pearly whites, pale browns and sumptuous yellows were all taken notice of and gawked at. The shoes were iridescent and classy.
The accessories were lust worthy but did not draw attention away from the clothes. Clearly, Mendel, the French coutourier extraordinaire has outdone himself yet again.
