Badgley Mischka: Evening Clutches and Everyday Fur

November 6th, 2013

Badgley Mischka - Mark Badgley and James MischkaThe award-winning team of Mark Badgley and James Mischka has been creating glamorous fashion for the red carpet and evenings on the town for years. And good news ladies, they’re not slowing down anytime soon!

In 1988, Mark and James launched their clothing line, Badgley Mischka, and in 1993 they launched a bridal business. They’ve since added shoes, jewelry, handbags, swimwear, eyewear, fragrance and outerwear to their resumes.

The pair met at Parsons School of Design in New York and have dressed A-list celebrities including Helen Mirren, Kate Winslet, Jennifer Lopez,  Oprah and more.  Vogue named Badgley Mischka one of the top 10 American designers, and with their signature look of “old Hollywood glam meets the modern woman” there’s no questioning that title.

Mastering function AND fashion, Badgley Mischka pieces are made to flatter the woman’s shape. In Mischka’s own words, the duo’s aesthetic is “simple, streamlined and thoroughly elegant.”

In 2011 the designers launched a signature luxury outerwear collection – the same year that York Furrier celebrated our 80th anniversary. We were so excited to be one of the premiere vendors of this debut collection! The line includes stunning evening coats, leather jackets, shearlings and rainwear, complete with flattering silhouettes and unique details. Our favorite part? The fur pieces, of course!

Badgley Mischka Outerwear

This black shearling jacket is perfect for a woman on the go. The shorter length makes for easy movement, yet it’s dressy enough to wear out – maybe to a show or post-dinner cocktail.

These cashmere-wool blend evening coats are infused with silver thread and are sure to become a staple style in your closet.  The far right is a pea coat style, and the left is a wrap piece with a leather belt and dramatic collar. Both silhouettes are extremely flattering, and the grey geometric detailing acts as a subtle way to break up the black.  The leopard print bag and evening clutches pictured are also Badgley Mischka designs.

Badgley Mischka Handbags and Clutches

Badgley Mischka is also known for their gorgeous handbags and evening clutches. This gold, geometric hard-shell clutch boasts a unique clasp and convenient detachable shoulder straps. Use it to complement an eye-catching dress or as a statement piece of its own. And don’t be afraid to pair it with silver jewelry – mixing metals is fun and edgy!

This leather hobo bag with gold hardware is perfect for running errands and pairing with other leather accessories – like boots or gloves.

The right Badgley Mischka evening clutch is adored and adorned with Swarovski Crystals. It’s versatile, with a timeless glamor that will bring you back to the days of Marilyn Monroe or Audrey Hepburn!
