Giles Mendel presented a truly elegant collection for J. Mendel Fall 2012.

The show opened with four all-white looks including a sleeveless coat, a cashmere fur-collared coat, a wool two-tiered jacket and a long cashmere cardigan before moving on to looks in black, maroon, gold, saffron, khaki and beige.

For a fall collection, everything felt very light.

Models walked the runway wearing lighter-than-air chiffon dresses, fur coats, tailored coats and jersey dresses.

The young and elite clientele will love his mini dress with full skirts and daring cuts, as well as the hot black panelled alligator jacket which was paired with a matching dress.

J. Mendel’s signature luxurious outerwear included fur coats and vests that came in different style and colours.

Gowns had plunging necklines, fully embroidered sequins, gold lame inserts, cut-out details, draped details and beaded embellishments which said, “Hello Taylor Swift”.
