New York Fashion Week, Spring 2008: J. Mendel


In the words of a fellow Sugar girl: "woweeee." J. Mendel delivered a undeniably gorgeous and feminine red carpet-worthy collection. If you have a soft spot for luxurious, flowing gowns - look no further. But before I go on about the gowns - where was the house's trademark material: fur? I know fur isn't very Spring-y but there were a only a couple occurrences. I wonder if Mendel was easing off the fur for political reasons?

Resuming...strutting to the disco beats of empowering Donna Summer, the early part of the collection showed some nice, crisp separates, but the latter part stole my attention. Soft pleats, fine chiffon, soft silk and goddess details like the one shoulder and ruching made for fabulous fashion. The devils advocate may argue it was a bit redundant, but when Mendel does a dress it is anything but typical. My only beef: those rosettes. Gag me with a spoon!
