Pre-Fall Review: Badgley Mischka.

Garments featuring chic tailoring, smooth fittings highlighting the female form as well as the signature neutral embellishments in rich tones of golds, imperial purples, moss greens, charcoal black and rich burgandy made up the pre-Fall Badgley Mischka collection. Ruffle and textured features cascaded down the luxurious silks and satins evident in the floor length dresses allowing the figure to be feminine but sleek. Balance was created through the luxurious yet subtle use of beading, paillette, and feather-dusted in the cocktail dresses and gowns which technique was calmed down through the feature of smooth ruffles which created character to the pieces and the overall look nicely.

The concept of waistlines was played with by the designers allowing an alternative view on the traditional high waisted and asymmetrical waistlines on the pieces which created many different illusions which have potential for any future ready to wear trends. Overall this collection was luxuriously subtle allowing maximum emphasis to be evident on the more simple styles in this collection as opposed to the more ostentatious pieces which were quite a no-show, for the right reasons as this collection reinstated.
