It's #NYFW: J. Mendel Fall 2017

"Eveningwear is often slapped with a stuffy, unrelatable stigma, particularly during fashion week when everyone is searching for the next big thing. But Gilles Mendel isn’t just out to create a fantasy. He thinks about the real-life viability of his clothes (even the couture pieces) and spoke of a high-low missive for Fall ’17. “I think today’s woman wants to wear a fur coat over a gown, but she’ll also wear it with jeans,” he said. A shimmering lace dress, for instance, was paired with the millennial girl’s must-have item: a leopard coat. As for the dresses, there was a balletic quality to the weightless tulle skirts and above-the-ankle hemlines. “Floor-length gowns start to feel a little old,” Mendel admitted. For the modern woman, a lighter, shorter dress is also just practical; you can keep operating at full-speed without worrying about tripping on your train." -
