In usual Badgley Mischka fashion, the runway was aflutter in drape-y fabrics with bridal-like attention to detail. "The collection has a classic and sensual sensibility," said celeb stylist Lindsay Albanese. With matching tweed sets in pastel hues and gauzy skirts also in lightened shades, the collection had Lindsay feeling nostalgic for old school elegance.
"There were actually quite a few wearable pieces that felt casual yet luxe," she said. Silk blouses like one in white with a white silk choker and one in peach with draping and a peplum halfway around the waist could easily be dressed up or down. "I could see myself wearing the blouses with a pair of distressed denim," shared the stylist.
With impeccable attention to detailing, each piece felt decidedly special, like something an upper east side Serena van der Woodsen might wear. A bevvy of ankle to floor length gowns in intricate patterns and modern florals felt approachable yet polished against loose, undone waves and bright, playful lips.
While gowns might feel a tad formal, we wouldn't be surprised if the collection had you pining for Gossip Girl-themed adventures like weekend polo matches or high tea brunches. While you might not be attending philanthropic galas on the regular, certain pieces still feel appropriate for less formal, real world situations.
So if you're looking for a refined label to step up your casual-chic game, your search ends here.
