The Signature Look of the Collection:
Designer Gilles Mendel’s lady this season is truly the epitome of Parisian chic; a phrase that I use sparingly, and dusted off solely for this show, this season. Everything that a woman would strive to exude when it comes to communicating through clothing — stylish, sensual, and incredibly polished, is all evident in this collection. Peek-a-boo lace, carefully inlaid into the garments, organza, jacquard, and even geometric shaping pay homage to traditional pieces with expressively modern updates. One of the most memorable lineups for spring, expect iterations of Mendel’s designs to grace every store, from high to low, come spring (or sooner!).
