The J. Mendel Resort 2013 showing is filled with tapestry cuts, vivid filters, and remarkable silhouettes.
The direction for the collection lingers on ultra feminine while remaining true to the spring time staples that typically befall a resort; bold floral prints, touches of white, and floor length dresses.
There were a number of what can best be described as stunning evening gowns--a specialty that J. Mendel is very well known for, and a few out of the box numbers that were a refreshing take on the resort such as the embroidered finn back raccoon fur vest, and the origami cuts that were present throughout the collection.
Standouts for the collection include a grey moto leather jacket paired with a leather dress with python panels of the same color, a floral gazar strapless gown, and the hand pleated silk chiffon dresses that came in a variation of colors and lengths-- among them grey, a soft blue, and maroon. The J. Mendel Resort 2013 showing is for the hypnotic women who prides herself on novel beauty expressed in a passionate form.
