Spring RTW Collection: Marchesa

Using the painting "Sadko in the Underwater Kingdom" as inspiration and the mermaid as their muse, Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig incorporated elements of the mermaid silhouette (close fitting through the bodice and hips, flaring out at the hemline) while creating the illusion of the sway of plants moving underwater. Silver beading throughout the collection worked in the same way as the sun does when flickering off the waves.
