J. Mendel Spring 2014
A string of glamorous looks took center stage at J. Mendel Spring 2014. Citing the song Cargo Culte as the source of his inspiration for the collection, Gilles Mendel delivered a portrayal of Gainsbourg’s free-spirited muse. Molly Sims and Brad Goreski graced the front row as the designer unveiled his take with a sophisticated New York edge.
Form-flattering and straightforward silhouettes were coupled with a color palette that transpired from lightweight corals and whites to darker shades of grey and black. Slicked hair and some flirty hemline added sass. A standout look was a sophisticated pastel yellow shift spliced with geometric strips of ivory lace, given a dramatic edge by a dramatic tiered black organza hem.
The range of evening separates adopted a jungle-inspired tone through metallic green and gold jacquard patterns on a sleeveless top and dress. Racier looks included sexy fitted fishtail gowns and shift dresses sprayed with a mix of lace, jacquard and organza. fdmLOVES J. MENDEL SPRING 2014 selects by Brigitte Segura, written by Khia Mercer.
