J. Mendel Fall 2015 Bags: Make a Night of It

With an aesthetic that tends to lean towards the simple and sophisticated, and an undeniable taste for all things luxe (hello, they’re a famed fur house!), their bags may not induce shock and awe, but they do incite an urge to get dressed up, in an elegant sort of way.
