Marchesa Spring / Summer 2014

There’s never quite such a thing as bare simplicity when you’re talking Marchesa, but for spring / summer 2014 even Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig chose to veil their signature glamour in a much subtler layer. Delicate, relaxed and following along the lines of the body, the show-stopping gowns presented during New York fashion week (NYFW) translated to pure preciosity.

Calling out “playful curiosities” as definition for their spring collection, the design duo saw the influence transcribe to an array of 1920s and 1930s lingerie-inspired silhouettes. With no corsetry in sight and a color palette made out of faded blues, grays, alongside nude, white and black, the lineup played upon the good old romance, with short but remarkable sparks of red carpet worthy sexiness.

Subtle floral embroideries and the heavenly use of Chantilly lace sat at the core of the collection, accompanied as it was expected by blocks of intricate pearl beads and a surprising exercise of innocently played sheerness.
