Style icons continue to inform the Badgley Mischka aesthetic. For Resort 2009, Mark Badgley and James Mischka were inspired by Grace Kelly in To Catch a Thief and Ava Gardner in Mogambo. One would image the screen sirens of yesteryear lounging in St. Tropez and modern starlets strolling through Cannes clad in this collection. With soft dresses and bright multicolored separates, looks capture a luxurious aesthetic. Stunning bathing suits and floral caftans paraded down the runway alongside piscine blue pieces, sunshine skirts and a red-hot gown. Embellishment and ornate details added richness to the collection in that ever-refined Badgley Mischka way.
