A Life More Fabulous

{Marchesa S/S 2011, New York}

When I look at Marchesa's S/S 2011 collection I can't help but picture European royalty, flutes of champagne, fabulous parties and hollywood red carpets.  While Spring/Summer lines are often on the casual side Marchesa's show at the Chelsea Art Museum last Wednesday was anything but.  Marchesa has been a favorite of mine ever since the label debuted in 2004 with its plays on volume and innovative interpretations of floral themes.  Designers Georgina Chapman & Keren Craig have a knack for making every piece they create look luxurious and rich, a reputation this collection steadily reinforces.  From what I've nicknamed "the cream-puff dress" (how amazing is it?) to lace harem-panted jumpsuits to feminine draped gowns with flowing trains, this is a line in which to lead a life of glamour.
