J.Mendel Pre-Fall 2019


Drawn to a deconstructed, bronze Lady Liberty works of artist Danh Vo, Gilles Mendel wanted to pattern a collection mimicking a opposite steel textures. But a collection wasn’t firm or unbending — rather glass and texturally abounding — in several steel shades. Mendel took his signature pleating to silver, gunmetal and bronze gowns, giving them a lightweight, glass demeanour and feel, imitative a folds of Vo’s sculptures. He also referenced Grace Jones for a collection’s Eighties flicker and gleam — ensuing in splendidly beaded cocktail dresses, burnout velvet offerings and lead beaded border dresses that mimicked chainmail. “You wish to dance, we wish to feel,” he spoke of a lustrous array.

From high day trousers and a boxy, velvet, beaded blazer to mink bombers and coats, dual of that were finished in long-haired and sheared mink in new trademark prints, to his gratifying dusk gowns, Mendel’s collection was a clever description of fun, complicated glamour. And some-more to it, it was a collection that Mendel felt strongly about. “I like this one. I’m really unapproachable of it, and during a finish of a day, it creates me happy,” he quipped.
