J Mendel is a label best-known for it’s coveted red-carpet creations. This is not generally the realm of innovation.

This dress, however, defies such constraints. It is quite beautiful, yes. But the technique at work here, lasercut pieces of calfhair stitched to layers of tulle, is spellbinding, and incredibly precise. It’s as if Gilles wanted to remind his public that he knows his stuff. And yes, he makes beautiful gowns.

It needs little embellishment, so skip the jewelry wherever possible. For your feet, disregard these awful boots and pair this technical wonder with a pair of sky-high sculptural platforms courtesy of Raphael Young or Diego Dolcini.
