For their more reachable line, Marchesa Notte, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig again referenced the work of interior designer Tony Duquette, known for his lavish and whimsical drama. Sounds like a match made in heaven for these three.
The dream team created confectionary perfection in vibrant colors and ornate floral embroideries, cascading down capped sleeve frocks with metallic silver Baroque-styled designs. Rose gardens found their ways on a black long sleeve sheer midi as well as an all-white tunic dress. Jeweled 3-D florals cover the bodice of a silky strapless column midi. And then came a muted version, but with just as much drama. An energetic mix of flowers have their moment over a sheer bodice paired with a bright yellow ruffled hem flamenco number. One particular dress goes Peter Pilotto folksy with its embroidery design, and it’s definitely a win in my book.
And ah! The watermelon and lime crocheted honeycomb plunge neck midi…can we just bask in that for a moment, please?
Actually, there were quite a few stunning plunge and off-the-shoulder numbers in the varying sumptuous textures Marchesa is known for. And from va-va-voom bombshell red to understated elegance in shades of black and icy matte silver, they offered a little color palette and cut for just about everyone. Season after season, it is always the thoughtful collection meant for every woman to find something they love.
