Comfort and couture are two words rarely associated with each other, but Mark Badgley and James Mischka are determined to combine both in their highly elegant Pre-Fall 2019 Collection. This season, the design duo presented looks that are all about relaxing in refinement—eveningwear that’s as comfy as athleisure. This means more focus on lightness and ease rather than color and embellishment, however, all were on full display here. Scuba knit, a soft and stretchy fabric often used in sportswear, was cut into exquisite gowns and elegant cocktailwear—many of which are fit for any A-list celebrity. Even the draping here looked comfortable, particularly with an emerald green number that looks sculpted but is actually easy to wear. It’s this sort of sophisticated hybrid that many women love Badgley Mischka for, and come fall, no doubt many of these dresses will make appearances on the red carpet.
