He's a former champion skier and fifth-generation furrier, but even designer Gilles Mendel needs a break from the cold. Mendel made a brief trip from his home in New York to Los Angeles last week to attend a lunch held in his honor at the Sunset Tower Hotel. “I think we're in for a long winter,” said Mendel's partner and muse Kylie Case. “Good for fur, bad for New Yorkers.” The couple and lunch guests relished the temperate L.A. climate - many of them were clad in pretty pastel J.
