Badgley Mischka Pre-Fall 2022 Collection
Mark Badgley and James Mischka looked west when building their pre-fall collection. The two men didn’t dream of California as much as they remembered. Both moved to the West Coast during their formative years, soaking up the carefree vibe that permeates the region. “A lot of this was inspired by our families,” says Badgley. “My mom had the sofa in the lookbook and the chair in teal. We have all these pictures of her sitting in it in the living room laughing; these colors made their way into dresses.
Upbeat, effortless glamor was at the center, the warm color palette drawn from the decor and the blush and terracotta tones one finds in a sunset in Santa Barbara. Working with pancakes and satin georgettes, they kept the fabrications elegant. The silhouettes – tea-length dresses with full skirts, airy striped maxi dresses, and halter neck styles covered in plaid prints – were casual. We could save these pieces for an occasion, but it’s just as easy to imagine the looks paired with the collection’s dark red motorcycle jacket.
The light vibe may have something to do with Badgley and Mischka’s secondary muse: comedy legend Lucille Ball whose ’60s wardrobe featured similar shapes. “Everyone remembers her silliness and comedic timing, but she was absolutely beautiful,” says Mischka. A model for Hattie Carnegie early in her career and elegant queen of the B-movies, Ball enjoyed moments of overt glamor, and that mood made its way into the collection as well. A party look covered in pink sequins is even reminiscent of her stage flight segment in MGM’s The follies of Ziegfeld, where she and an army of pastel dancers recreate the theatrical review.
