Badgley Mischka Spring/Summer 2012


For this spring Mark Badgley and James Mischka produced a collection full of flourishes such as ruffles, oversize bows, and peplums. Their Badgley Mischka, Couture and Mark + James collections were very Southern Belle according to WWD (indeed, it was). I thought that it was feminine with a twist of glamour. There were brocade sheaths and matteliss├ę gowns, all with yards of tiers and peplums.the magenta gazar sheath, the pale green floral printed gown, and the shantung dress with a boldly draped neckline and peplum-waisted pencil skirt were quite lovely. Jackets and shorts were playful with sequins and added a sporty slant to the show. Even though the collections were combined, the presentation looked quite disjointed as a result. Badgley and Mischka were at their best with the last two georgette gowns that floated down the runway: one in blush tiers, the other, nude and embroidered. These boys are definitely your go-to for spring.
