Ethereal, fairytale like and breathtaking… The Marchesa spring/summer 2014 collection demonstrated at New York Fashion Week has all the necessary details to turn you into a forest goddess or a drama queen! “Playful curiosities come to life,” read the show notes at Marchesa that describes the collection best of all! Influenced by the styles of the twenties, thirties and fifties, Marchesa cast a cavalcade of heart-beating dresses and gowns that made the models look like weird dolls or otherworldly creatures that you can find only in fairytales!
The Marchesa spring/summer 2014 collection didn’t let the audience down, since everyone expected an overload of drama and glamour from the luxury fashion house, something that has described the brand’s style for years. The creative designers of the fashion house, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig definitely know how to dress celebrities for red carpet glam events and this spring too they have some spectacular options for fans of sophistication, femininity and grace.
The Marchesa spring/summer 2014 collection can be rightly regarded as a wonderful play of lingerie-inspired silhouettes, intricate embroidery, impressive appliqués, fine silk, lace and organza, refined embroidery, delicate fabrics and a soft color palette. Undeniably wonderful floral motives, ribbons, feathers, pearls and fringes injected a high dose of romanticism and drama to these flappers and vintage nineties inspired gowns and relatively “relaxed” separates. Fanciful, dreamy and ethereal, these pieces are made to wow at any high-class party!
Undoubtedly, the Marchesa spring/summer 2014 rtw show featured some edginess and eclecticism, which was more vivid in the beauty choices. The Marchesa models were wearing dark purple lips and feather-decorated loose hair, while their bodies were printed with flower and butterfly tattoos, done by Scott Campbell. No wonder, this was a nod to the tattoo tendency of the modern world!
