Spring 2012: Badgley Mischka

27 Dec

Badgley Mischka rein superior in the girl-glam kind of fashion. It’s a bit of a niche market, with most designers airing towards ball-gown, award show couture rather than this type but it is also a style that is really wearable. While Badgley Mischka has always been a collection filled to the brim with dresses that exude the utmost femininity, this collection took it to a new level. The duo toyed with cuts more here than they have in recent collections. The show started off with a bang with strong, strong, exotic dresses that had unusual cuts and stole the show before it even began. The collection calmed down a bit afterwards, opting towards more subtle displays of the craft with the half peplums and the draped pieces. Badgley and Mischka incorporated some of their diffusion line styles in this show as well. The pieces for Mark + James are so well made that they’re practically indistinguishable from the rest of the show. There were, of course, the designer staples like the exotic skirts with the simple tops — sort of a fancier and less structured Jil Sander SS’11 piece. Those are the kind of styles that I immediately identify with Badgley Mischka in my mind. This show was a standout for the team — a rebranding where they prove that they are not confined by ultra-femininity and can really toy with other parts of the design world as well. Definitely a win in my book.
