We know it's a little early, but it seems like there's a lot going on next week and you may want to plan your weekend early. Neapolitan in Winnetka, will be the only shop nearby where you can review the latest collections from the legendary French fur house and global luxury fashion brand, J. Mendel. From September 8 - September 10, J. Mendel is having a trunk show of the Fall collection as well as elaborate evening gowns from the Resort 2012 collection, which will be available for pre-order at the boutique. Experience the plush furs from the fall line, including tailored coats and jackets in mink and fox, along with detailed gowns draped in frayed organza and satin-faced lurex from the resort line.
