J. Mendel Fall 2012

Credit: Vogue.com

There is always something incredibly luxurious about J. Mendel.  With a lot of classic structure and plenty of fur pieces, J. Mendel really appeals to the opulence of high class living.  His evening wear is a construction of “texture and feminine architecture” with unusual necklines and pretty gathering.  I love the beautiful simplicity of the silk crepe and geometric cut outs.  And although the beadwork and mosaic paneling are exquisitely intricate, there is almost a minimalist glamour about J. Mendel’s gowns.  In a lot of ways, this sort of quality reminds me a bit of The Row (which is funny as the Olsen twins continually sit front row).  Each has an ability to take a normally complex concept and fashion it into an undeniably chic collection.  The craftsmanship, of course, is superb, with the skirt billowing out so beautifully about her ankles. And although award season is over, I look forward to seeing his pieces on the red carpet and the sort of old school glamour associated with them.
