Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
This week J Mendel unveiled a new boutique on Madison Avenue and debuted Gilles Mendel by Enoc Perez, a collaboration between artist Enoc Perez and J Mendel designer Gilles Mendel. Monday night’s celebration drew the likes of Chanel Iman and Ivanka Trump.
Gilles Mendel by Enoc Perez is a book containing 48 stunning collages by Perez extracted from photographs he took of Mendel’s world after developing a friendship last year. The photographs chronicle the studio, fittings, sketches, runway shots, and scraps of fabric that cohesively form a visual portrait of Mendel, as well as highlight Perez’s artistry. An excerpt of a conversation between the creative pals in the book’s introduction will be in Whitewall’s winter 2014 Luxury Issue, out next month.
DJ Alexandra Richards, Alek Wek, Bettina Prentice, Casey Fremont Crowe, Constance Jablonski, Genevieve Jones, Jeisa Chiminazzo, Jessica Seinfeld, Lauren Santo Domingo, Lisa Airan, Lisa Anastos, Martine & Prosper Assouline, Melonie Diaz, and Meaghan Waller also attended the event.
