Fall 2012: Marchesa

17 Feb

 

For the second collection on a runway rather than presentation, one thing has become very clear about the direction of this brand. There is a realism — a now — a complete wearability that was completely absent in the past collections. I was surprised by the plethora of mini dresses in the collection and the way that the duo created their signature pieces in a new way. There were some that were undeniably phenomenal and difficult to wear with the wild amount of sheer material and essentially no structure or form. The last gown I selected was literally the most stunning piece I have ever seen and without a doubt I cannot even begin to consider how quickly it will be snatched up for some award. There was a kind of black swan/white swan quality in this that was exacerbated through the extravagance in the collection.
