J. Mendel is known so well for their eveningwear, something that they have perfected over the years. Exciting and new in the recent Pre-Fall collection is a hint of a casual vibe coming through. We wouldn’t go so far as to call it “daywear.” But, there is definitely a more casual feel mixed in with what Gilles Mendel is best known for. And we are loving it! Now his gorgeous designs and extraordinary fabrics can be worn more often and not just for special occasions.

The look here features a black lace top and leather trousers. Both have exceptional detailing that adds to the beauty of the silhouette. There is a subtle, elegant hint of metallic in the lace fabric of the top. And notice the delicate gauze fabrication used in the opening at the back of the blouse. The leather trousers are beautifully accented with rows of stitching detail on the waist and the pockets.

Besides the detailing of this silhouette, what makes these two pieces so great is that either one can be easily paired other ways to create more casual or dressier looks.
