J. Mendel Bridal
He’s ultimate authority when is comes to understated glamour. Look no further than the first look from designer Gilles Mendel’s fall presentation: an impeccably tailored column gown that managed to make densely beaded sequins look minimalist. The plunging silhouette is joined by a detachable tulle overskirt, should the bride prefer two looks for her big day. Rounding out the assortment are best-selling pieces from the house’s signature collections, including the Marine Gown with its hand-pleated silk mousseline bodice that creates an Art Deco effect. From such 1920s influences to Grecian draping, Mendel’s charm lies in his ability to reinvent timeless favorites with forward-thinking appeal.
