What’s black, white, and red all over? When asked by a kid, the answer will probably be “newspaper!” but when asked while reading a M.I.S.S. blog during New York Fashion Week, you’ll probably guess a certain collection. In this case, it’s Badgley Mischka’s Spring 2010 ready-to-wear collection.
The colors remained black and white for the majority of the collection, with a touch of red, fuchsia, purple slate for color. Combine that with easy, office-worthy silhouettes for the day, and flirty cocktail dresses and full length gowns for the evening, and you’ve got a collection that works together as seamlessly as any ready-to-wear collection should. An occasional swim suit made it’s way down the catwalk, adding to the relaxed mood of the collection.
Badgley Mischka played with texture and lines, off-setting solid and smooth fabric with lace yokes and overlays, heart-shaped tufts or feathered fabric over skirts and beautiful embellishments along necklines. There was nothing too complicated in the designs and nothing too minimal either, more importantly the collection looked cohesive, with all the designs bringing the eye to the waist, giving the illusion of curves in all the right places. The overall runway look, pulled back hair and simple make-up, made the casual sophistication of the collection crystal clear.
