On this last day of Fashion Week in New York, J. Mendel, being recognized for its creative work of fur, we were presented a collection focusing on cloth and silk, while reinventing the concept of fur by giving a more flexible and lightweight to fit in the warmer temperatures of Spring / Summer.
Inspired by the fluid and graceful movements of ballet dancers, designer Gilles Mendel, who created designs for the New York City Ballet, was able to enhance the ballerina look with pleated short skirts and mini dresses. The latest lookbook collection showing J. Mendel was also photographed in a rehearsal room where the models raise the bar in diaphanous silk gowns, ballerinas.
At the presentation, the models walked with a natural cadence to Bittersweet Symphony by The Verve, revealing maxi skirts and pleated chiffon cut on the ankle and feminine evening dresses in shades of peach, skin, gray-blue and pink opal. J. Mendel showed silver fox boleros intricately worked and mounted on mesh with luxurious and delicate fabrics. For a look of ancient goddess or bohemian chic, the collection of J. Mendel offered cocktail dresses with clean lines in length and with asymmetrical shapes. Wear it with flat scandals, the long skirt is a must for Spring / Summer 2011.
