A Colorful Collaboration At J. Mendel

By Robyn Roberts

September 12, 2014

J. Mendel produced a vibrant collection during New York Fashion Week, full of visual thrills that were a bit of a surprise from the designer. Mendel collaborated with artist Enoc Perez for his spring/summer 2015 line to recreate the artist’s paintings of architectural structures through fashion. Colors and prints were a solid representation of Perez, so one can imagine it was only natural for these two minds to intercept.

Prints of large multi-windowed buildings are used throughout the collection on both evening and ready-to-wear. The color palette is a vivid array of energetic hues from orange red to bright turquoise, shimmery silver to dark black. Perez has often incorporated collage into his works of art and Mendel follows suit by dissecting solids and prints into strips, then piecing them back together in a mix to create abstract dresses and miniskirts. We love what he did with a strapless leather jumpsuit in support of this theme. For eveningwear, Mendel shifts his intentions towards more streamlined silhouettes, invoking lean architectural lines and columns.
