J.Mendel Spring Bridal Collection for Fashion show New York 2017
Gilles Mendel lifted ready-to-wear silhouettes from his fall runway and reinterpreted them with a delicate hand in his softly romantic bridal lineup for J.Mendel.
All of his gowns were slender, hugging the body. After the introduction of last season’s Champagne-hued dress the house’s first time playing with color for wedding wear Mendel chose pale blue for spring. He used it in strapless gowns, one in featherweight pleated chiffon and another with colorful beaded embroidery in a calla lily pattern, a motif also seen on his fall ready-to-wear collection.
A few long-sleeve looks done in sheer lace had a bohemian flair particularly one style with billowing, pleated bell sleeves and transparent waist cutouts while a short-sleeve silhouette with a mesh-beaded bodice struck an effortlessly sensual note.
