J. Mendel’s pre AW 2011 collection is the perfect mix of “menswear” and womenswear, light delicate dresses paired with fur covered structured outerwear. Heir to the grand furrier throne Gilles Mendel certainly didn’t disappoint. (more…)
The pièce de résistance for us (well there were two, we can’t help being indecisive) was the black on black trench with fur covered collar and 1/2 sleeve. The leather belt and OTK boots sealed the deal. Also the black on black jacket with full length skirt with pleated detail on the hem was divine, Mortitia (Addams Family) does Burberry.
The menswear was a little more relaxed with sweaters, cardigans and tweed jackets teamed with straight leg trousers and brogues.
The exception to the rule was the black tux and patent brogues.
