New York Fashion Week AW 2012 - Badgley Mischka
My favourite shows of New York Fashion Week AW 2012 have all had one thing is common; they've been deliciously opulent and a little bit dark. Badgley Mischka's, much like Jason Wu's, collections featured deep, luxe colours and plush fabrics to convey a slightly sinister impression of 1930s Hollywood.
Badgley Mischka's collection had me at 'hello' with a stunning first look, a jewel-encrusted full length gown. The velvet, lace, heavy silk satins and fur accents sealed the deal and this collection had me falling head over heels in love. And don't even get me started on the curly, crazed hair and bold berry lip. I freaking love it.
With a hint of 'ageing golden era movie heroine superstar' (yeah, that's a thing, ok??), this collection looks like it should be in soft focus, and shot in black and white. I can't pick a favourite look, it's that good. It's collections like this that remind you why you love clothes so darn much.
