Fashion Recap: Marchesa Fall 2013

(my absolute favorite!)

Fashion week passed, and of course I had to kick it off with Marchesa. They always traffic dream moments and after years of being in awe of their collections they still never seem to disapoint.

They had a whole new vocabulary of embellishment to play with—elaborate threadwork, sari draping, fringe. Lots of fringe. India also provided them an eloquent palette, loveliest in looks of chartreuse, peacock, bordeaux, or eggplant tones tipped with gold. And when Craig and Chapman integrated those elements into their own aesthetic—rather than merely aping the Bollywood look straight—they conjured some knockouts: for instance, a strapless bordeaux-color dress with a hand-painted gold border, or a stunning sculptured sari gown.Fashion week passed, and of course I had to kick it off with Marchesa.
