Eveningwear for breakfast?
Why not, if the menu includes Mark Badgley and James Mischka’s beautiful offerings for fall. The design duo’s Tuesday morning runway show celebrated an elegant, sophisticated femininity with covetable gowns, worked in a variety of silhouettes. A series in nocturnal tones of blue and black opened the luxury parade on a chic note — a strapless dress was crafted from textured fil coupe silk, while a column style with an open back was entirely covered with sequins.
Metallic accents were introduced via sumptuous brocade styles, ranging from a cocktail, flared off-the-shoulder frock punctuated by floral appliqués to a floor-length, one-shoulder ball gown with a neckline trimmed with ruffles. The collection’s outstanding craftsmanship found expression in a group of romantic dresses covered with delicate embroideries, as well as pearls and crystal embellishments.
Models walked around several tableaux showcasing both the brand’s furniture and daywear collections. The latter included easy-chic attires, including a blue velvet T-shirt and pants with a loungewear feel, as well as cashmere coats worn with slim pants and fluid silk tops. The range exuded a sense of relaxed comfort.
