Arthur Mendonça has returned after a bankruptcy-induced hiatus, and we think his fall/winter 2011 collection was well worth the wait. Mendonça presented a group of prints, lace, velvet and plunging V-neck lines that reflects the spirit of the ’70s, a style that the fashion world has taken a shine to (again).  Reactions from the fashion pack included, “I need a cigarette after that collection,” “I really, really loved it” and various other bawdy analyses. Welcome back, Arthur. Check out our complete scene coverage in addition to our full collection of runway photos below.
