New York S/S09: Marchesa

Marchesa has always produced pretty dresses on the runway, but this collection blew me away. It is every girl's dream wardrobe! There were sweet and cute cocktail dresses that are youthful and glamorous. I love how even though the shapes are so simple, the designs are so unique- in a good way. The silhouette is familiar, but I've definitely not seen these dresses before! There were elegant evening gowns, complimented by heavy oriental embroideries. I've never liked the whole fringe thing, because I think it looks creepy- like Cousin "It." But this black dress is definitely an exception to the rule. It looks more like a black waterfall flowing down her legs.
Then there were exquisitely beautiful pieces that just makes you want to stop and stare. And admire. They are more like pieces of art than ready-to-wear, further perpetuated by their method of presentation- with the models standing atop white cubes like sculptures (must be tiring for the models!). Indeed, I believe that most of these pieces are one of a kind. I wonder what they'd sell in their store then...
This dress is my absolute favourite. I love the barely there lilac shade. I love the orchids strewn artistically down the dress (it is apparently made of feathers!). I love the artistic folds of the top, contrasted with the frothing lilac waterfall that is the bottom. Everything. I can just stare at it all day!
And this comes in a close second. The sharp contrasting black and white color with the soft layers of the skirt creates the perfect balance that is absolutely striking!

The SS09 collection was definitely a feast for the eye!

The dresses are unbelievable but are the models supposed to look like they just got out of bed?

Those dresses are absoulutly stunning. But I do agree with the person above. Are the models supposed to look like they came out of bed.

some of the ugliest dresses i have ever seen, seriously. the odd loops of wide fabric are just grating. it seems as if perhaps someone got rolled up in a paper towel machine. and i'd go with your first impression--the fringe is still creepy. the other dresses don't really seem creative enough to comment upon.

I love these dresses. And I really like how you compare them to art. There is definitely an artistic component at work here that could really work with the shape of the dresses.

The reason it doesn't work, however, is that the dresses and artistic presentation in general was done using emaciated pale and generally sick looking models. They didn't look like they needed to sleep, they look like they needed to be admitted, stat.

Wow these dresses are gorgeous...
I love the whole just got out of bed look too.
I mean the dresses make the models look great anyway and the contrast i think was a great idea.

All dresses are cool, but the pink and black one is wonderful, awesome, beautiful, and great. Designing is a really excellent job. I must say the designer has a great thinking of creativity.

My daughter and I really love this site ... you both really have good fashion sense. But do you know any fashion sites for males in general? Thanks =]

I love the fact the the models look like they just got out of bed. The contrast is wonderful, and they are gorgeous all the same, even more so. It is as if this very talented designer is saluting women in all forms not only heavily made up, but in a more natural state.

This is really some of the most gorgeous dresses I have seen; thanks for that! But so what if the models aren't wearing 3 tons of make-up? They're young and beautiful and embraced by the dresses... my favourite is the gold and black cocktail up left and the black-and-white 'bonanza' of a dress at the bottom
