MARY MCDONALD FOR SCHUMACHER: SOUTH SEAS SENSATION

MMD-in-Skirt-square

I can not think of another designer more glamorous and fun loving than Mary McDonald. Anyone who has lived vicariously through her Instagram feed knows she always travels in style (with great company!) and absorbs the local culture wherever she goes. I love seeing her inspiration manifest itself into her latest collection for Schumacher. Every detail reflects her recent adventures to Bora Bora, Puka Diamond and Moorea.  The shapes and colors of the South Pacific blended with Mary’s love of fashion make each fabric, trimming and wallpaper extremely unique. The scale and pattern placement of the fabrics allow for maximum versaility to create banding and borders with just the fabrics alone. The exquisite details such as fringe, beading and embroidery are the perfect finishing touches for her collection as well as her wardrobe for the photo shoot below…

Schumacher describes the collection as being “inspired by the South Pacific, the cotton-linen prints and embellished fabrics and tapes include primitivist geometrics and a breezy floral. The colorways are effortless—Lava, Sea Oyster, and Marine pair beige and sandy tones with hues of black, gray, and indigo. McDonald tapped into her background to incorporate distinct dressmaker details. Fringes, embroidery, and beading come together to create a couture-worthy collection that’s at once casual and sophisticated—exuberant and fabulously easy.”
