The modern, glamorous and quirky J. Mendel spring/summer 2015 collection just unveiled at New York Fashion Week spring 2015 is the result of the exciting collaboration between the brand’s creative director Gilles Mendel and famous artist Enoc Perez. “We were interested in playing with luscious textures and color, while keeping the lines very architectural and sleek,” the designer revealed talking about the mood of his spring collection. It did, actually, contain lots of artistic vibes and a creative mishmash of textures, colors and shapes together making the newest J. Mendel spring 2015 designs so memorable and wow-worthy. From luxurious fur pieces and modern chic daytime outfits to elegant gowns ready to charm everyone around, the newest collection of Gilles Mendel has everything for polishing the style of a modern fashioniser!
From the very first look demonstrated the touch of Perez’s artistic brush could be felt on the collection, as the opening looks brought some stunning prints and patterns giving life and interest to those fab mini dresses in black and white, and the puffy fur coat and jacket. The unexpected cuts, drapings, slits and transparency details are what came to secure the absolute chic looks of the coming refined white dresses. The same artistic abstract prints were used on a couple of other looks too, like the cute one-shoulder mini dress featuring black, platinum gray and green shades.
Fur played an important role in the J. Mendel spring/summer 2015 collection, coming in unexpected hues and shapes, like the creative lemon fur crop top worn over a chic mini dress with intricate beadwork. Then we saw a unique blue fur coat cut in the tuxedo style and another blue and pink one (the same style could be spotted in gray and red too) with an artistic vibe. The texture plays didn’t stop here, as we also saw lots of leather, chiffon, cotton and beaded materials combined together quite unexpectedly, making every single design presented utterly dramatic and one-of-a-kind.
Pleats, slits and airy designs were what the J. Mendel stunning eveningwear stood for. There were a couple of beautiful chiffon gowns mixing a few colors put in the geometric manner, as well as coming with lots of delicate pleats and bold high slits. In lien with these there were also stunning cocktail dresses, ones in the same airy style, and some unique pieces with prints, bright colors, one-shoulder designs and bold silhouettes.
In terms of accessories, the looks were finished off with identical heels and flats put in different hues to look harmonious with the outfits. Those were point-to killer shoes having pretty high chances to become the next trending items in the fashion world. Some small bags in various hues were other complementing details. The models hair was sleek put in elegant ponytails, while the makeup was in the classic style.
The J. Mendel spring/summer 2015 collection is a stunning source of inspiration for all those looking for the unconventional, cool and dramatic! It has every single detail to help you look modern chic and artistic!
