Badgley Mischka Runway Review
By Erycah Taylor
Badgley Mischka’s Fall 2012 collection conjures up smoky images of a pre-Depression America, where Prohibition helped feed both the gin-starved in back-alley bars and the flapper fashion revolution.
The collection features a plethora of figure-skimming dresses in warm metallic hues that ooze of stately, powerful old glamour that is seldom seen nowadays. With so many vintage-inspired pieces in this collection, it would seem difficult to keep the line from looking like they’d been pulled from a period piece on Broadway; however, Badgley Mischka somehow keeps it totally new and modern, possibly due to a few futuristic, cut-out necklines here and there.
The ’20s theme was also echoed in the Fall 2012 Marc Jacobs collection, which boasted a gorgeous fur stole and an outrageous fuchsia dress with a matching top hat worthy of the Mad Hatter himself. The vintage silhouettes in this New York Fashion Week bring back the look of sophisticated, classy women that society has long since ‘forgotten. The ‘Roaring Twenties’ look is definitely coming back with a full roar, and I, for one, am extremely excited to see what this trend has in store for fashion.
