• Marchesa • A/W 14 •

Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig were inspired by Ambera Wellmann's painting 'Highland Smoke' and a Scottish women who is disheveled in the winter. The show was held at the New York Public Library yesterday evening. Any inspiration that serves the duo is emulated perfectly into their collections. The painters they take inspiration from are usually that of memorable works (Goya was a few seasons ago). They make me appreciate the artists and learn more about them. On top of amazing designs it's another reason why I like Marchesa.

It's quite fitting how the Academy Awards are coming. With the heavenly sublime gowns, celebrities will have a lot of options.

Everything in the show was so intricate. I got the impression even the dresses with torn ends were precise. The colours used were orange (a NYFW trend), red, black, blue and grey.

I'm baffled by the gloriousness of the looks. Look 3 was a pearly white round neckline pencil dress sitting below the knee and had ornate and symmetrical floral embellishments in burnt orange. It was the most impressive look of the collection in my opinion. 

Keren and Georgina are masters. They are masters of intricacy, combining couture elements in ready-to-wear and drapery. As designers it's great skills to have. Season after season they give me nothing to complain about or to criticise. All I am left to do is to try to fathom the extravagant beauty and the great deal of craftsmanship that goes into their collections.
