In a fashion Week that has been pretty uninspiring for the most part, designer Gilles Mendel's unapologetic luxury was a bold turn. We were a little conflicted about covering this collection given the extensive use of fur, but the beauty of some of the designs - particularly the dresses - eventually won that battle. Mendel showed sumptuous fabric such as the aforementioned furs, as well as brocades, lace and feathers all of which were worked into stunning gowns and outerwear and rendered in a gorgeous autumnal palette of warm oranges, reds and aubergine.
