J. Mendel's Glitzy New Madison Ave. Outpost

By  |  0 Comments

When a slew of top-notch editors show up for a store opening, it’s clearly not just an average eve of boutique-ing! For the glossy debut of J. Mendel on Madison Avenue, the likes of Stefano Tonchi, Deborah Needleman, Glenda Bailey, and Karla Martinez stopped by to peruse the goods. What can you expect from the store itself? A few rooms bedecked with furs, languid evening gowns, and a dramatic spiral staircase. The evening also fêted a book collab between Gilles Mendel and artist Enoc Perez, titled Gilles Mendel by Enoc Perez. The tome contains a series of collages infusing images from the design process with runway shots and fabric samples. With DJ Alexandra Richards mixing tunes, the crowd included Chanel Iman, Alek Wek, Constance Jablonski, Lauren Santo Domingo, and Ivanka Trump.
