marchesa f/w 2012


You can always count on Marchesa for an absolutely beautiful collection. This season, design duo Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig found inspiration in "Soul Carried To Heaven," a 19th Century painting by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. Most of the collection focused on the angelic side of the equation - winged embroidery, a profusion of white feathers - but some of the pieces explored the dark side. I mean, that soul going to heaven is dead, after all. The human - aka, mortal - side was explored in the more grounded looks, including an exquisite laser cut leather dress, as well as some sheer dresses layered over anatomical skeleton embroidered bodysuits. As interesting as those pieces are, though, don't expect to see them on the Oscars red carpet, which is a mere 10 days away. No, the starlets in attendance, including George Clooney's current arm candy, Stacy Keibler, will stick with the full on angelic glamour of the collection's heavenly gowns.
