Pulling inspiration from Vienna, Badgley Mischka’s Fall 2014 collection was washed in gold. Models marched down the runway in rich fabrics and colors. “It’s our mission to keep the clothes as modern as possible. This season is all about elegance and glamor,” explained the duel designing team.
Always having a close eye for details, the team presented hand-beaded bodice with ruby gems and tweed wool shift dresses with a metallic glaze. Sparkly gold gowns, leopard printed suits and floral blue brocades all had a touch of shimmering gold to add effect. Mark Badgley and James Mischka used chunky gold jewels on cuffs and leather gloves. Warm fur hats and scarves added glamour and richness to pieces. A weightless metallic floral brocade made a beautiful ball gown, while a leopard print on a wool suit was tuned down to contrast with the otherwise opulent materials.
Though the fabrics might look heavy, they were as light as a feather. “We usually do things close to the body, but our fabrics were so light this season, it allowed us to cut big flowy silhouettes with a lot of sweep, which was fun for a change" explained James Mischka.
Badgley further explained, "everything has a little guilt touch to it. We gold washed the fabrics; we took tweeds and bronzed them. The evening gowns all have, they're weightless, they weigh just literally ounces but the fabrics are extremely rich and opulent. "
