New York Fashion Week: J. Mendel Fall 2010

The cold, winter weather on February 18, in New York, set the mood for J. Mendel's Fall 2010 collection. The program read photographer Ryan McGinley's cave series, was the inspiration for the somber color palette of rust, mossy green, and stone blue. Although the pretty chiffon dresses where executed beautifully, the main focal point of his collection was in fact the furs. Mendel did not disappoint when it came to fur, which was about 50% of the collection. Working with a lighter hand and new techniques, and with ultra feminine details, Mendel mastered to reinvent his signature furs in fox, mink, and persian. Thought they were light on the body, these fur pieces are still hardy and warm for the next winter season. -David Pedroza
