La Dolce Vita with Badgley Mischka Fall Winter 2015 at NYFW

Badgley Mischka FW 2015

Following a holiday at a 450 year-old monastery in Cartagena, Columbia, Mark Badgley and James Mischka infused their Fall Winter collection with retro allure worthy of the silver screen. Hourglass silhouettes and beauty queen beehives were reminiscent of ‘60’s femme fatales Sofia Loren and Brigitte Bardot.

Models resembled old Hollywood film stars in tweed two-piece sets, jacquard dresses and black trousers. Ensembles appeared demure but were alluring–with vampy accessories, including lace tights and leather gloves. Mark Badgley and James Mischka showcased the waist–from a tweed peplum top to a belted red plaid dress. There were nods to Spanish matadors with gold embellishments on the shoulders of a lilac column dress and on the waist of a narrow, black floor-length skirt.

Modest cocktail dresses segued into more revealing one-shoulder evening gowns. Meanwhile, fitted bodices gave way to full jacquard skirts with dipped hems. There were form-fitting tulle dresses with jewel-encrusted sleeves, as well as a canary yellow column dress with beaded cutouts at the waist. As for the finale, floor sweeping frocks with metallic gold brocades had “screen siren” written all over them.
