Gilles Mendel’s Spring ’14 collection for J. Mendel was gamine and luxurious. Mendel was inspired by Serge Gainsbourg’s song “Cargo Culte”, the final track on the album The History of Melody Nelson. The designer outfitted the singer’s imaginary muse with pieces that were as slouchy and comfortable as they were delicately finished. Who wouldn’t want to replace the baseball shirt and track pants reserved for walking the dog on weekends with a lace, jacquard and silk crepe raglan sleeve t-shirt and pants made from panels of two different laces? Who? Who?
