J.Mendel Resort 2016

Op Art prints — done on flowing gowns with a touch of Lurex and as bold geometric pockets on outerwear — gave a sexy yet sophisticated edge to Gilles Mendel's resort lineup.

Op Art painter Bridget Riley’s work influenced some of Gilles Mendel’s “curvilinear” prints for his J.Mendel resort collection. Done with touches of Lurex, they appeared in flowing, hand-pleated gowns and dresses — to sultry effect. Elsewhere the designer showed more restraint via graphic outlines of pockets on pants and versatile wool and shearling outerwear with geometric paneling – one coat, specifically, could be converted into a jacket by zipping off the bottom half.

 

“This collection is a celebration of the code of the house,” Mendel explained. But what is a J.Mendel collection without a standout fur? This time, a streamlined pink mink coat did the honors.
