Leather, cut-outs, tweed, faux fur, brocade, peplums, & lace just aren’t going away… & why should they? In J. Mendel‘s latest Pre-Fall 2013 Collection, we see all these luxe details celebrated in dramatic, dark colors with plenty of texture, as well as softer tones with feminine accents. We’ve already seen what the designer can do since Girls actress Allison Williams walked the red carpet of last weekend’s Golden Globes in this stunning plunging black gown. Other celebrity fans of the brand include Taylor Swift, Emma Stone, Brooklyn Decker, & Malin Akerman. This collection is full of visual interest & will definitely help inspire some of my looks for the rest of the winter season & as we look forward to a very stylish 2013.

Mendel, check out Maria Sharapova at the ESPY Awards, Lucy Liu walking the red carpet for her new show Elementary, & Taylor Swift‘s ivory & metallic design at the MTV European Music Awards!
