“Elegant technicality. Fluid Emotion. these are the tenets of J. Mendel’s Spring 2010 collection. – J. Mendel

J. Mendel’s collection was an absolute stunning showcase of luxurious fabrics, intricate cuts, draping, natural and airy color palettes, along with touches of soft fur. “Each piece is an emotion.”, says designer Gilles Mendel. The muses for Mendel and this collection were artists Noriko Ambe and Tara Donovan. Ambe is a master of creating works composed of elaborate cuts, and Ms. Donovan is known for her incredible biomorphic sculptures.






As soon as I laid eyes on the collection, my pupils dilated and it evoked an emotion in me that all women want to feel: “I feel pretty, sexy and chic.”  Innovative, modern and elegant, the collection possessed looks that almost any woman could feel beautiful in, all the way down to the shoes, which were none other than Christian Louboutin.
