J. Mendel - New York Fall 2009
(NEW YORK) Giles Mendel gave us what we love from him--fur--mixing it into a collection that was modern and practical, but with no shortness of glamour. We expected luxurious minks and got them, but he also showed smart tweed suits and day dresses. "The collection was based on classical looks from the sixties, but turning to a much more sharp and edgy moment for the modern woman of today," Mendel said after the show. A line of gorgeously draped, brightly colored gowns in crêpes and chiffons closed out the collection--just in time for the Oscars.
