MARCHESA SS2017 is a celebration of the beautiful marriage between water and light. The water represents purity and the collections shifts its moods and colors, variated by the time of day.
The show begins in complete darkness and the gentle beauty of a string quartet. Simple notes vibrate through an uncomfortable silence, and repeated 3 times.
A gentle light is projected onto the runway with soft ripples representing water.
As if transported 30 ft under water, a gentle moonlit glow, transports the collection into another world.
Moonlight represents mystery, beauty, and darkness. The contradiction between light and dark is magnetic, as it absorbs darkness and reflects light.
One may look at the carefully embroidered flower dresses and immediately think Spring gardens, however, for me, I see crashing waves before a storm.
The temperament of water is extremely varied and unique, based on water content and projection of sunlight, water adopts a whole new character.
Sunsets represent love, warmth, and peace. The movement is gentle and relaxed. The gliding of the slow waters is soothing to eye and mind, and the beauty is undeniable.
A SPLASH OF WATER
Water movements, shapes, and textures are based on rhythms and waves, that pulse through it.
Like a wild splash of the clearest water, this MARCHESA gown is a refreshing delight for the eyes.
