Fashion Week Notebook | J Mendel

September 24th, 2005

Key Takeaways: While much of this collection catered to the gala dinner set–J Mendel’s primary clientele–it also featured unusual pairings (shearling with sheer pleats) and cocktail dresses with barely-there layers that will no doubt show up on A-list celebrities this spring.

Color Palette: Ice Queen colors–pearly pastel blue, pink and purple–and beiges.

Silhouettes: Fitted jackets with dress shorts or flowy skirts; wispy gowns; shearling jackets; ruffled column dresses.

Accessories Report: With barely-there dresses, skin was the accessory of choice.

What’s Wearable: The singular suit of the collection, a brocade, half-sleeve skirt suit.

What’s Not Wearable: Tank tops with randomly attached fur.
