G is for Gilles. G is for Genius. With a capital G. We've gone totally gaga for Gilles. Heir apparent to the formidable french furier, Gilles challenged traditionally held beliefs that fur was weighty and only for outerwear when he took over eains of the brand. Gilles' approah to fur was to treat skins like fabric--showcasing instead their delicate and ethereal qualities.
In 2003, the fifth generation Mendel launched a ready-to-wear collection. Gilles applied his sylph-like styling to the garments included in the line, which also included, bien sur, fur trim. In the same year, the CFDA came knocking. and we're so glad they did. Mendel's collections are always hallmarked by a consistent fluidity in deisgn and showmanship. His ethereal gowns, while always ahead of trend, manage to stand the tests of time as well. not an easy feat to master . . .
