Showing in London to mark the 10th anniversary of their label, Marchesa’s Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig paraded one of their frothiest collections to date in a lavish room at Banqueting House in Whitehall Palace.

Georgia May Jagger strolled out in a tiered gown of floral embroideries and fluttering tulle, cueing the bohemian mood of the show and its main decorative motifs.

The delicate, often diaphanous fabrics telegraphed a mood of fragile femininity, with one gauzy gown resembling a pink fog of flowers nuzzling the body.

At times, the overzealous decorations — pileups of sparkly fringe, lace, tulle and silk threadwork — broke the spell. Yet the intricate embroideries were impressive, especially feathers approximating the petals of peonies during their last days in the vase.
