J. Mendel's Pre-Fall 2012 Collection key themes are inspired by the geometric patterns of Sean Scully's paintings, Gilles Mendel incorporated a grid-like pattern into garments for his pre-fall collection, and introduced shearling and patchwork details to his outerwear. The result is an updated take on fur and everning wear that is glamourous and edgy. (WGSN)
