Is it just me or has the travel bug bit everyone on the runway this season? While the world of interiors is battling their demons with the “staycation” fashion seems to also be channelling escapism in their garments. Combining romance with the natural effortlessness, Marchesa’s SS21 collection makes you celebrate an endless summer.
Hand-painted jungle motifs with oversized painterly tropical flowers and deliberate accents in yellow, burnt orange and tangerine are offset on crisp white ground, like clean fresh air. Highlights of lavender and amethyst sequins with flashes of green are seen in embroidery layered over large scale tonal prints, creating a rich tapestry of color, transporting you to the most lavish lavender fields in Hokkaido Japan; no passport required. Unique tropical guipure laces are allowed to dictate shape and cut in a variety of shapes, from easy to wear shifts – to all-over scatter embroidered tea length gowns with 3D Flower appliqués adorning the neckline.
The true craftsmanship that is part of the Marchesa heritage is seen throughout in play with voluminous couture shape and juxtaposed silhouettes. Sleek lines are paired with dramatic skirts and masterful organically draped signature pieces honor our DNA. All are created to be kept forever.
