Models coolly walked down a runway made out of snow at Badgley Mischka, with ice totems looming in the background. The reference was clear: Lights reflected the multicolored hues in the sculptures and on the floor as much as on the designer's dazzling clothing. This season, the collection consisted mostly of solid looks in beige, black and whitedouble-face cashmere was paired with sequined trousers and beaded georgette; rabbit bombers were worn with leather jeans. The ultra-glamorous eveningwear consisted of embroidered patchwork gowns and sequined sheaths in bronze, champagne, and magnesium; the bronze was so sequined it looked nearly holographic.
