(New York, NY) Marchesa Designer and Co-Founder Georgina Chapman and Co-Founder Keren Craig present their Resort 2013 collection, inspired by childhood memories of a beautiful English garden party.
Contrasting rich hues of fuchsia and blue with soft tones of rose, ivory, and grey, the collection embodies an elegant soiree set amongst the bold color of a tulip garden. Designed with lace with layered tulle overlay, corded laser-cut lace with structured shoulders, and draped chiffon with embroidered details, the collection presents a range of options from colorful cocktails and gowns to tea-length evening coats. Using mother of pearl accents, Chapman created a hand-embroidered “abstract flower” pattern that presents a unique view on floral while remaining true to the elegance of eveningwear.
Alongside their ready-to-wear, the designers debuted a complementary collection of their signature handbags. The Resort handbag collection features a range of silhouettes including versatile day-to-evening bags in vivid exotics and delicately embellished crystal miniaudieres and envelope clutches.
It's time for the resort wear collections. Maybe its our love traveling or maybe it's because we love warm weather, but we absolutely love resort wear season. See some of our favorites for Resort 2013 more to come later this week!

Badgley Mischka took a pretty sophisticated approach to resort wear this year. Mark Badgley and James Mischka recently moved out to Long Island's North Shore. The designers found their Resort inspiration in an old yet soon-to-be-revived classic, The Great Gatsby. With images of Mia Farrow and Carey Mulligan in their heads, the designers whipped up a series of dresses, in both cocktail and floor-grazing lengths, that they imagined Daisy Buchanan might wear to entertain.
This collection by Max and Lubov Azria reminds us of some classic Helmut Newton Newton photos. This Resort season, they took inspiration from pop art and comic books, the designers created sexy and dynamic color blocked dresses and swimwear. It's geometric and modern.
