Falling in love with Marchesa’s Indian Inspired Spring 2013 Collection

How do you not fall in love after seeing a Marchesa collection? Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig are not only the designer masterminds behind the brand, but they are fabric connoisseurs, embroidery experts, and exquisite drapists as well.

Vibrant colors, intricate embroideries, sari drapery, and gold embellishments best describes how the collection embraced everything India. Last year we saw Karl Lagerfeld adorn the Chanel collection with beautiful Indian jewelry after being inspired by the Indian Maharajas and their elegant jewels. Chapman and Craig’s inspiration came from a slightly different place – the Sixties, when the Beatles turned to the Maharishi as their spiritual guru.

Even the jewelry and purses in the show were completely Indian inspired. Models wore Polki style Indian jewelry and carried beaded Indian Potli style bags. The entire collection was paired with custom brocade or jewel encrusted Christian Louboutin heels.

Here are some of my favorite pieces from the collection:

Absolutely LOVE the intricately embellished churidar style pants!
