NYFW: Marchesa Spring 2012 Ready-To-Wear Collection

It’s no secret that I adore Marchesa, my top picks for each award show always have at least one—if not all—Marchesa creations. When I first heard the chosen theme was “Under the Sea” I must admit I was a bit skeptical. Not to say it couldn’t be done tasteful but there is a very fine line between the couture and the plain out tacky. Inspired by the painting Sadko in the Underwater Kingdom by the Russian artist Ilya Repin as well as the jellyfish drawings of Ernst Haeckel, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig produced a truly whimsical line. The pieces speak for themselves and of course, in true Marchesa form, leave you speechless and wanting one of each!
