J. Mendel Resort 2016.

Mon. 06/08/2015.

Let me start by saying this definitively and emphatically...


Ok, There! That's out of the way. Now, knowing this, you can imagine the conundrum foisted upon me when viewing the very first looks of Gilles Mendel's Resort 2016 collection for his Ancestral fashion house, J. Mendel. Confronted thusly, as I was, with a most unappetizing shade of Grape made for a bit of queasiness and consternation. It also did not auger well, that the collection would improve from that point forward. It sadly, didn't. It was a Nice collection, plenty full with Beautiful coats and some interesting sportswear... And that's about it. Everywhere else, it failed to rise to the occasion.

The main issue... The clothes didn't look all that inviting. Resort is supposed to entice and intrigue and stimulate, that wasn't happening with this output. A Beautiful ligh Violet Chiffon evening gown had potential. as did a truly winning ensemble in deep Rose Pink surmounted by a Deliciously Desirable Mink topper! The rest, not worth mentioning to be honest! It was not disappointing, it just did not excite in the right ways. At least not to me! The Purple may have had something to do with it!

That's All.
