Each New York Fashion Week, Mark Badgley and James Mischka can be counted on to add an extra dose of glamour to the calendar. Fall 2012 – Winter 2013 was no exception - the boys delivered a glamorous, vampy romp that made more than a few in the audience gasp with delight.
In classic Badgley Mischka delivery, the collection was superbly feminine and luxurious.
When it comes to that touch of luxe, they know their way around. From the frizzy hair to the dark make-up to the models’ slinky walk, the girls bridged the 1920s femme fatale of Fritz Lang’s Metropolis with French fashion editorials of the late 1970s. Fritz Lang’s masterpiece is really getting the go-around this past year; designers definitely appear to be channeling his aesthetic.
In classic Badgley Mischka delivery, the collection was superbly feminine and luxurious. Yet, this time, the boys introduced their secondary line, Mark & James right along with their primary high fashion line-up. Once said and done, it was a smart choice and looked unusually fresh. Not only did this effort showcase both collections beautifully, but they showed the Badgley Mischka gal transition effortlessly from day to evening, even bridging age and lifestyle gaps.
The styling, once all the high-glam was removed, read simpler and even sportier than in past collections. It couldn’t have been any more clear than with the mink jackets (we’re obsessed with PJ belting). These two love their fur touches and this collection’s glam factor uses fur in some of the best and most creative adaptations we’ve seen. Loved it!
