Marchesa cofounders Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig have expanded their exclusively formalwear brand and introduced a daywear collection. The design duo have named their line Marchesa Vogage, joining their bridal collection and their line of cocktail dresses under the moniker Notte. With bohemian references as well as the first-hand experience of both designers being pregnant with their second child, it is no doubt going to be a collection of glamour-for-the-daytime, and the line being priced at a very reasonable price range of $100-$400. According to WWD, nothing in the collection is plain or basic, in true Marchesa style, and no doubt this more accessible and wearable line is still just as covetable as the high-end red carpet dress line.
The collection includes printed silks, furs, embellished denim and pieces with extensive embroidery, Chapman explained at a recent preview of the collection:
We felt like we needed it to have personality. There would have to be a reason for someone to buy it… Something Keren and I had always wanted to do was a loungewear deal – the Marchesa in her palazzo.”
I can’t wait to see the rest of this collection! Affordable Marchesa?!
