New York Fashion Week: Marchesa Autumn/Winter 14
Inspired by the Scottish Highlands
According to their show notes, designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig of Marchesa were inspired by "Visions of billowing bonfires sweeping through the Scottish Highlands," for their Autumn/Winter 14 collection.
Held at the Celeste Bartos Forum at the New York Library, the interior setting featuring domed ceilings offered the presentation a grandeur vibe.
With the Scottish highlands as inspiration, the designers presented a dramatic and decadent collection. According to Craig: "We have a lot of bonfires so we were looking at the fire and the smoke and we took a lot of the colors from the bonfires."
The chosen colour palette included deep oranges, copper, saffron, grey and teal - with a range of designs that played up on Scottish elements, with kilt-like styles and tartan lace gowns. Other designs exuded a Victorian vibe with lacy button-up and draped silk details.
