The easiest way to add a touch of edge and a downtown-cool look to an evening gown is through the use of accessories, and the J Mendel Pre-Fall 2012 collection demonstrates that idea flawlessly.

By topping off breathtaking evening gowns in feminine hues and sophisticated fabrics with a fur shawl, a look is immediately taken from basic red carpet gown to star-worthy, best-dressed list status.

"We were very focused on bringing back the essentials of J. Mendel," Gilles Mendel told According to the designer, the theme of the J Mendel Pre-Fall 2012 collection is "unapologetic luxury." It's hard to deny that the Pre-Fall offering just screams "luxury."

From fur-topped evening gowns to casual jeans and sweater combos, this is one collection that is sure appear on celebrities and fashion insiders everywhere.
