From the looks of it, designer Gilles Mendel isn’t afraid of global warming. Though the fall collection was smaller than previous lines, it was heavily invested in fur — coats, jackets, vests, muffs, neck warmers, even delicate puffs on shoulders, like epaulettes, on a sparkly mini dress. Hey, Mendel comes from a fifth generation family fur house, and in a bad economy you go with your strengths. There were other options, too, like a series of draped and gathered strapless numbers, and one stunner trumpet gown in iridescent red that burned like a flame. — Joseph V. Amodio
