Mark Badgley and James Mischka excel in making being a woman a covetable affair. Taking inspiration from photos of women on holiday on the French Riviera in the 1920's, their S/S '14 collection brought the smell of sea air and the energy of the Gastby era to tents at Lincoln Center.
The show's opening looks were perfect summer delight, displaying un-obtrusive polka dots, airy summer tweeds, navy's, and cream daytime looks. Flowing wide-legged pants, sheer shirts, and vintage silhouettes - knockout design after knockout design left the audience delighted and reaching for SPF and a cocktail.
As the show ticked on, so did the hemlines. Beaded evening dresses, ruched silken affairs and flowing gowns with embroidered applique sheaths fit for sea breezes rounded out the collection with what made Badgley Mischka famous. A simply lovely collection overall.
