NYFW, Marchesa: Underwater Kingdom

An aquatic theme inspired Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig's collection for Marchesa. The designers behind the grandiose label noted in their program a number of nautical inspirations, such as the 19th century Ilya Repin painting "Sadko in the Underwater Kingdom," and Ernst Haeckel drawings of tentacles and jellyfish.

Model Karen Elson opened Marchesa's show in a glittering dress made of cascading silver fringe. Several of the dresses were made entirely of sheer tulle, with sequin embroideries creating coral-like patterns on the model's bodies.
