“We were thinking about uberglamorous women. It’s unapologetically feminine,” said Georgina Chapman of her and Keren Craig’s latest collection for Marchesa. The lady it’s intended for is a busy one: “Either she’s off to the casinos to play roulette or she’s entertaining at home by the pool in a feathered caftan,” added Craig, describing a leisurely, Slim Aarons-inspired lifestyle that probably isn’t too farfetched for the label’s chic, tony clientele. And in fact, the collection did include a white silk caftan decorated with gold metallic embroidery — and ostrich feathers.

As for those casino nights, the lineup was full of frothy, decadently embellished evening wear. A plunging V-neck gown in pearl-embellished fringe conveyed a flirty flapper vibe. Colorful floral appliqués and iridescent embroidery cascaded down the duo’s floor-sweeping gowns or across off-the-shoulder necklines, adding romance and dimension to the looks, in shades of lavender, blush and mint green. Elsewhere, a black chiffon gown with sheer blouson sleeves featured white floral embroidery and a rainbow of silk and tulle flower petals for a touch of dark glamour.
