Marchesa SS18

If last season took its visual tapestry from China, for Spring/Summer 2018, the Far East again proved a rich source of storytelling for design duo Georgina Chapman and Karen Craig at Marchesa, taking a turn to Japan by way of famed 1920s explorer Aimee Crocker. For a brand beloved for its gowns, this season showed no shortage of ultimate show-stoppers, this time with built-in jewellery – think pearls, crystals and gems embellished into necklines or atop bodices and lapels.

Taking the iconic beauty of the Japanese landscape – from cherry blossoms to wisteria and a confetti of petals – the collection showcased an exquisite floralcy as vines climbed gowns like sashes, buds scattered across tops and necklines, while all-out bouquets bloomed out of waistbands. Texture was key, as armfuls of tulle, organza, chiffon and feathers twisted and wrapped in organic forms, while a clear nod to the collection’s heartland came in the form of kimono-style sleeves and silken elements. 

A new chapter in the fairy tale of Marchesa, start looking to the red carpets over the coming months to see these storied gowns in action.
