Even those lucky ladies leading the most charmed of lives—filled with cocktail parties and red-carpet events every night of the week—have their dressed-down moments. And now, designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig are addressing their glamorous customers’ day-to-day needs with a new contemporary collection, Marchesa Voyage, which they officially launched last night with a celebration on the Gramercy Park Hotel rooftop. “We always wanted Marchesa to be a lifestyle brand,” Chapman told Style.com. Craig added, “For us, Voyage is all about creating clothes for the global-minded woman and the global-minded traveler, whether she’s going somewhere exotic or just venturing to the office.” The designers mingled with a posh crowd, including Courtney Love, Sami Gayle, Michele Hicks, Rachel Roy, and Lorraine Schwartz, all of whom sipped cocktails and checked out select looks from the premiere Fall and Resort ’14 collections. Many of the wares, like the sequined shift Chapman herself was wearing, are arriving in stores such as Saks, Bloomingdale’s, and Neiman Marcus this week (prices will range from $260 to $1,000). Other highlights displayed on mannequins included a cool biker jacket and matching kilt skirt with allover artisanal embroidery, as well as a bohemian pleated silk maxi dress, printed with celestial moons and stars, paired with a tailored tuxedo jacket. Chapman’s jovial studio-exec hubby Harvey Weinstein also made the rounds. “I actually inspired the entire collection,” he joked, adding, “I love seeing Georgina being able to finally do the kinds of clothes she really wears most of the time.”
