Ornate jackets for everyday? Marchesa is rumoured to launch a contemporary sister line

We turn green with envy almost every time a Marchesa dress hits the red carpet (Jennifer Lawrence, anyone?). So when we heard rumblings of designers Georgina Chapman and Keren Craig launching a contemporary sister line we did a major happy dance. For now it’s all very hush-hush but it looks like the new line will be in addition to the already-existing diffusion collection Notte by Marchesa, which features simpler gowns and cocktail dresses. It seems like a foray into ready-to-wear separates would be a natural progression for the designers. Ornate jackets? Feather-detailed skirts? Really, what could be better? We’re anxious to see how this pans out; if it’s anything like the Fall 2012 collection, we’re sure to be big fans.
