Ian Mahinmi’s New Menswear Collection

Pacers fans might associate Paul George with style, but it’s center Ian Mahinmi who has his own fashion label. French Deal (a reference to Mahinmi’s nationality) does dressy with a sharp, sporty edge. One of the line’s signatures is the letterman’s jacket, with a waistband and contrasting sleeves, elevated with lapels, rich materials, trims, and patterned linings. This video from the set of French Deal’s photo shoot provides a good overview of the label’s second collection, with plenty of dinner jackets, slim-cut pants, and “Rump Shaker.” Oh, and Mahinmi cameos, too.

Fernandez began writing for Indianapolis Monthly in 1995 while studying journalism at Indiana University. One of her freelance assignments required her to join a women's full-tackle football team for a season. She joined the staff in 2005 to edit IM's ancillary publications, including Indianapolis Monthly Home. In 2011, she became a senior editor responsible for the Circle City section as well as coverage of shopping, homes, and design-related topics. Now the director of editorial operations, she lives in Garfield Park.
